Mardi-Gras 2020

IMA HOUSTON won't be International without sharing international cultures. Mardi-Gras (for French people) or Fat Tuesday (for American people) is one of them!

Mardi-Gras also know as "Fat Tuesday" was brought to the United States in the late 17th century as a french catholic Tradition by the Le Moyne Brothes.  Mardi-gras initially reflected the practice of the last night of eating rich, fatty foods before starting the fasting of the Lenten season that will end with Easter celebration.

This year, at IMA HOUSTON, Kyoshi Patrick Richoux decided to prepare some french "CREPES" to share with his students. If you don't know what a "crêpe" is, this is a flat thin kind of pancake with  no raising agent. They can be sweet or savoury. At tha dojo we decided to eat them with Chocolate spread, preserve or sugar. What a delice! 

It was a great success, and once again, parents and children enjoyed this french tradition!
