Crêpes like in Paris
Crêpes are the comfort food of my childhood, and the childhood of my children. They are tasty thin pancakes, that are much less sweet than what pancakes typically are. The dough is often even made without sugar and then the sugar is just sprinkled on the top, or a sweet topping is added to give the Crêpes some sweetness. I also love savory Crêpes with Swiss cheese and ham for example, or with cold smoked salmon.
My mother would make crêpes after school, and she taught me and my sisters to make them too. Later on, I then taught the skill of making crêpes for my daughters. While crêpes might mainly bring me family memories, I can’t help but share my favorite spot to get crêpes in Paris, France. The La Droguerie Du Marais is a small crêpe shop in La Marais with a few seats inside and a window to outside, and you can buy the crêpes to go directly from the window, and see them being made for you. I always buy them with Nutella and Banana, and can’t visit Paris without a visit to this crêpe shop, even though you can find Crêpes from all around the city – sometimes even sold by vendors on bicycles!
