I first fell in love with crepes on a trip to, of all places, Japan. Though I’d had them stateside before, the first bite of a green tea crepe with green tea ice cream and whipped cream (okay, that’s really excessive, but hey, I was on vacation!) and I was hooked.
These lacy French delights are an amazing and versatile treat. And they’re easy to make at home! It’ll take some time to get the hang of evenly coating the pan with batter and successfully flipping the crepe over, but this recipe makes about 30 crepes so you’ll have some time to practice!
Though I’m focusing on sweet/dessert crepes this time around, I’ll put up some great savory crepe recipes soon!
After trying out a few different recipes, I finally found the perfect version. It comes from the venerable Alice Waters, and is complete with a “secret” ingredient — beer! Check out the next page for the recipe.
