It's time to say au revoir to winter foods and welcome the light, fresh and zesty flavors of spring and summer!
Crêpes are an excellent example of how simple foods can be modified into spring celebrations with fresh vegetables and zesty toppings.
Essentially extra thin pancakes made with a flour and eggs-based batter (Check out the recipes below for examples) crêpes are a world-renowned French dish that can be folded and filled with almost anything,
Crêpes originated in northwest France and have always been served in a wide variety of ways in their native country. They can be unadorned or served with fillings ranging from single ingredients to wildly elaborate, savory and creative concoctions. And of course, cheese can enhance any crêpe!
Ideally, crêpes should be served fluffy, evenly cooked and slightly crisp (to taste, of course).
Quick spring crepe: Asparagus is in season and provides a fresh, healthy ingredient that can really shine inside crêpes. The best part? Asparagus tastes fantastic with a variety of cheeses.
Try grilled asparagus with a white wine and dill sauce. For a fantastic flavor ensemble, add a bit of goat cheese, Ile de France brie or the Ile de France Normandie camembert cheese either inside the crepes or as a side.
Another great option is steaming some asparagus along with assorted mixed veggies and adding a simple hollandaise sauce. Adding some grated Etorki, Comté or Fol Epi cheese to the hollandaise sauce is a simple step that produces a uniquely flavorful combination that is perfect for crêpes.
