The Background Story
Crepe Fillings and Garnishes

Crepes (crépes in French) also known as "French pancakes" are simply thin pancakes. They can be used in many ways - as a shell for blintzes (belinis) or as wrapping for croquettes (breaded Polish blintzes - pronounced "croquetteh"), as a desert or even, the way we like it, as an elegant breakfast dish.

Of course, there is the most famous of those variations, the "crépes Suzette" - a delightful crepe, fired in alcohol ... based on orange - usually containing some Grand Marnier and a bit of orange zest.

We're pleased to feature a series of short recipes designed, primarily, to be used as fillings and/or garnishes for crepes. While crepes support all sorts of wonderful flavour options such as jams (rolled in) or being rolled in sugar and cinammon we prefer fresh fruits and berries and mushrooms and other wonderful foods.
