DIY Crêpe Dinner

Recipes May 25, 2020

Looking for an easy yet tasty dinner to put in your book of recipes? Then *poof* here it is. While this does sound scary to do at first, I can assure that this is one simple crowd pleaser, which can never go wrong.

To start this off, you can either buy premade crêpes from a grocery store (Dagim is the brand I use), or you can make them yourself. Both of these will make the night a success, but making them does take a little more time, so just make sure you take that into account.

This night can be filled with the best of both worlds: savoury and sweet. Based on your number of guests, divide the package or homemade crêpes to fit the proper ratio. If it’s just the two of you, I’d recommend making 10 crêpes and split it to have 5 for savoury and 5 for dessert, as they are filling. This isn’t scientific, so feel free to customize the amount to both of your liking.

Savoury Start

For the savoury side, stick to those undeniable flavour combinations that leaves people wanting more. You’re here to impress your partner so that they know you’re cultured in more ways than one, so some honey roasted figs, goat cheese, and caramelized onions go really well with roasted red peppers and balsamic glazed brussels sprouts to take this night to the next level. If you’re in need of some more inspiration diys.com offers some great savoury filling options for you and your partner.

If you’re looking for some drinks to go along with dinner, pair this with a nice red or white wine, depending on your preference. The nice touch of oak washed grapes complement the soft crêpes and tarty fillings to bring this evening from good to great.

Sweet Endings

When it comes to filling, this is the most important part to make this crêpe night a success, so let’s skip the cinnamon sugar and chocolate spread to leave room for some real creativity. One cool option for a filling is melted white chocolate and strawberries because it’s sweet, colourful, and simple. Thanks to the smooth flavours of the white mixed with the vibrant red of the strawberries, this is something which cannot be forgotten. In case this doesn’t scream YUM to you, curiouscuisiniere.com has a great list of sweet fillings to make your mouth water.

Now, the drink here is just equally important since we all want your evening to end on a sweet note. I’d recommend some Moscato or ice wine to do the trick, as it’s sweet and strong (just like me!) and will do the trick to sum up the delicious food. A strong start to the evening needs a strong end to the evening, which will definitely be accomplished with the help of these wines.

Let this night take you on a magical trip to Paris as you indulge. Pretend you’re beside the Eiffel Tower or sitting in a cute café while enjoying your delicious meal by putting on a French movie in the background. Or listen to some French music to make this night feel even more special. So go and enjoy your night in Paris Mon Cherie, oh and as they say in French, Bon Appetite.

As always, stay healthy and safe.
