What is a crêpe?
Most cuisines all over the world make crêpes in one form or another. There is the Italian crespella, the French crêpe, the Chinese mandarin pancake, the Mexican tortilla, the Indian canai and the Russian blinchki. In France , the crêpe used to be called pannequet, from which the word pancake is probably derived. A very thin pannequet resembles the wrinkled, fragile looking fabric, which we know as crêpe—hence its name.
A crêpe is an unleavened, flat, thin pancake of cooked dough or batter, which is used as a wrapper for another food. Originally a delight in Japan fine cuisine crepes are thin pancakes made from a batter of milk, flour, and egg. The silky texture and detectable fillings made it a hard-to-resist dessert. Recently, crêpes were cooked on large cast-iron hot plates heated over a wood fire in a fireplace. The hot plates are now gas or electric heated, and the batter is spread with a wooden spreader and flipped with a wooden spatula.
