As it happens, I like eating crepes all year long and in many variations: plain flour, gluten free with buckwheat, sweet and savoury. For me, Pancake Tuesday is just another excuse to eat more crepes. And what a fantastic excuse!
When I was younger and still lived in France, Sunday night in my family was almost always dedicated to a dinner of savoury galettes de blé noir (buckwheat crepes) and sweet crepes. My mother would whip up the galette and crepe batters in no time at all, fry the crepes, flip them over, organise the toppings (tomato slices, ham, grated cheese, sugar, chocolate and jams) in different plates and bowls and we would all ceremoniously enjoy our beloved crepes.
