Eric: Let's break this down. First is an expression meaning "On the menu today:."
Yasmine: Au menu du jour:
Eric: Starting with this phrase shows that you have something different to offer than what you have usually. Listen again- "On the menu today:" is...

Eric: Then comes the phrase - "crepes for Candlemas."
Yasmine: des crêpes pour la Chandeleur
Eric: Candlemas takes place 40 days after Christmas; it used to be a Christian celebration and a symbol of prosperity for the coming year, but nowadays in France, it's just known as the day you make crepes, and no one really cares about its origin. People generally eat their crepes with Nutella, jam, honey, sugar and so on... In some recipes there isn't any sugar in the dough, so you can also make salty ones like ham and cheese crepes. Listen again- "crepes for Candlemas" is...
Yasmine: (SLOW) des crêpes pour la Chandeleur (REGULAR) des crêpes pour la Chandeleur

Yasmine: Au menu du jour: des crêpes pour la Chandeleur :D
