It is time again for a bi-coastal blog post. Friends Susan and Towny, who rent their home in Provence and write the blog entitled “The Modern Trobadors,” have suggested a theme for this week - sweet and savory crêpes. I am all for it and am happy to be bringing you a rolled savory crêpe filled with chicken, mushrooms and cheese sauce based on a Julia Child recipe. They will be posting on dessert crêpes.
We are both using the same basic recipe for the batter, with slight tweaks depending on whether your crêpes will hold sweet or savory fillings. But the thing that makes this bi-coastal posting extra special is that they had the opportunity to be given a lesson in crêpe-making from their friend and French teacher Madame Janine Kolb, who hails from Saint-Gaultier, France. They videotaped the lesson (en français with subtitles) and have posted it on their site. Click here to see how easy it is to make the batter and flip the crêpes!
