Did you know I studied French all through junior high and high school and a year of college? I don’t think I could even attempt plus-que-parfait now, but some things stayed with me.
We explored France through food a lot in class. Those were my first experiences with crepes, real chocolate mousse, chicken cordon bleu, bouche de Noël, and tarte tatin, which I cooked for my teacher out of a French cookbook. (Yes, I was an insufferable foodie even then.)
Crepes are one of the things that I love to make – they’re super easy and endlessly customizable. By using buckwheat flour and King Arthur Flour’s gluten-free blend, I don’t need to worry about making a different dish for my gluten-free friends. The buckwheat adds a little more heft, but they still cook up wonderfully, especially if you use a special crepe pan. Don’t have a crepe pan? You’re in luck, because you can enter to win a beautiful one from Le Creuset and a set of delicious Bonne Maman jams over at Food Fanatic!
