Bob and Tiffany are always telling me "I don't know what I like" and I think they are probably right. I had crepes a bunch of times in Culinary school and I just never got the big deal and why people seemed to like them. But, I had someone in my Advanced Baking Class (*ahem.......Mary) ask if we could make them and I had a day where we were at the end of a chapter and I hadn't really had much planned except "truffles" so we made crepes.
What can I say except they were "DELICIOUS", I love them Sam, I am. I would eat them on a goat, I would eat them in my coat. I would eat them here or there........I WOULD EAT THEM ANYWHERE!!!!!!
So, this morning I made my husband and I, a big plate of crepes with marscapone and blueberry sauce with powdered sugar on top. A super easy brunch idea when you have company.
I need to take a moment to blog about Chef Andrea in Trastevere, Italy who I am still amazed by his knowledge of Italian cuisine, it's nice to know other chefs care about their students and bring so much information into the kitchen when they cook. I have made his recipes 3 times since I have been home now, I made the Deep fried Neapolitan style Pizzette for my class and also for Robert and the Parmigiana di Melanzane on Monday night which is a version of eggplant parmisian that is so much better than what I normally have had as eggplant parmisian. Chef Andrea's version is deep fried but has a so light and airy taste.
It's quite delicious!!
Of course, I loved Rome so much. I can't wait to go back someday and I believe that if you throw a coin in the Trevi fountain you will return again. Caio.. :) Bren
