We’ve all wondered how the French can stay so thin with all of those buttery dishes and desserts. While that mystery remains unsolved, one French tradition is très simple to figure out: crepes! These yummy, thin pancakes can make a great alternative to a thick slice of cake for dessert, or provide a perfect platform for a savory dinner.
Tip: If you’re new at crepe making, or just not that graceful (like me!), I’ve had success by heating up a second frying pan and flipping the crepe into that when it’s ready to cook on the other side. It’s another dish to wash — and perhaps a sin against Julia Child — but it works quite well!
