Layers of crêpe:As intro


Crêpe is Bretagne (Brittany), I would playfully say, because it’s where it originates this thin pancake. It is known that the best crêpe in France is in this region. It is geographically situated northwest of France; one of its 26 regions. This region was once been free and one of the Celtic nations. The net would provide you greater information about it.

Here, I’m just imparting my personal experiences as a foreigner living here. I’m using crêpe as a title for there is so much to appreciate with this simple pancake made of wheat flour, butter, eggs, milk and a pinch of salt. It also can be served as your main meal or just a dessert. It is my personal connotation as BRETAGNE.

For years living here, I have been clicking my camera like a tourist (don’t take this bad) and I’m glad that I have not let it rest only to that. As I took my own pace to slowly acclimate myself. Though, I didn’t stop observing even with a glass barrier on my window. And the more, I see and sometimes mingle make me feel more at home. You’ll know later why.

Hope, this vague little intro would keep you following my layers of crêpe.

I love crepe too and i have tasted some here, the ones with fillings i it. however, i am sure the one you have mentioned would taste and feel a thousand times better. have you tried making crepe yourself? how hard is it?
