Crêpes. What do we know about them?
- They are French
- They seem complicated. Precise measurements into the correct temperature pan versus the more easy-going nature of everyone’s good friend the “Pancake”
- The word itself seems complicated because of the little hat over the “ê”. (It’s called an “accent circonflexe”, we’ll do a French lesson another time)
- They are thin and need to be flipped…trouble?!
Well, as always there are two sides to look at this. The good news is that I saw an episode of Giada at Home where Giada made them look pretty simple. The bad news is that I haven’t tried it yet AND maybe she makes them look easy because she’s just that good!
I figured why not give them a shot tomorrow for Father’s Day brunch. It’s the thought that counts right?
Success or failure, i’ll own up to how they do!
Giada filled her crêpes with rasberry, i’m thinking a variety of fillings to disuguise the possible incompetencies of my crêpes.
Happy early Father’s Day to all!
