What is a Crêpe?
A crêpe is a very thin French pancake usually made from wheat flour that can be used as a base for savory or sweet recipes. Savoury crêpes are called galettes and are served for lunch or dinner, while sweet fillings can be eaten as part of breakfast or as a dessert. Crêpes are often associated with northern France, but they are popular all over Europe, Canada and in South America. In Paris, crepes are served at stalls in the street, or at more formal sit-down restaurants or cafés.
