    Have you ever experienced the Chandeleur? 


    In France, the month of February starts with the celebration of Candlemas - La Chandeleur - which occurs on the 2nd, 40 days after Chistmas. The origins of the Chandeleur date back to pagan feast: according to local customs, candles had to be a lit at midnight as a symbol of purification. Chandeleur comes from the Latin "candelarum" as does the English word 'candle'. It was at the time of the year that the winter seed-time started. The surplus flour was then used without too much risk of shortage and crepes were made as a symbol of prosperity for the coming year. In some families you flip the crepes with a gold coin in your hand and if it "flips properly, you will be rich all the year!"


    BYOC ! Bring your own cider!!




    $15 for members

    $25 for non-members

    Reservation before January 27. Reserve early, place is limited.

    BYOB event!


    The word “raclette” comes from the French word racler which means “to scrape.” This delicious meal, prepared during the chill of winter, has been passed down from generation to generation by villagers living among the snowy peaks of the Alps in France and Switzerland.

    Today the raclette is a favorite meal throughout France and has become a festive tradition.
