The crème de marrons is a typical French product that has been produced and hasn’t changed for over a hundred years. Every one knows about it and most loves this sweet chestnut purée. You can find a bit more about this product here (This is the original and still most preferred brand in France).

Ah, la crème de marrons, un grand classique et tellement bon!

Day 91: French Crepes in a lunchbox, Yum!

Menu du jour:

2011_02_03

  • French crepes with ham and cheese
  • Carrots
  • Apple

2011_02_03

  • Crêpes au fromage et au jambon
  • Carottes
  • Pomme

I like crepes, the kids too. They’re easy to make and can be kept for a couple days (well packed and refrigerated). I had made a big batch the night before, it was very handy for this morning lunchbox. You can find some nice recipes here, here and here. There is one thing that I want to add: in my family we often add a little bit of cidre (French cider or alcoholic cider) or even beer to the batter. The crepes then seem to be even fluffier and lighter, it is so good.

J’aime beaucoup les crêpes et les enfants aussi. C’est facile à faire, cela se garde quelques jours au frais et c’est tellement bon. J’en avais préparé beaucoup la veille et du coup c’était bien pratique ce matin pour préparer la boite à lunch. Vous pouvez trouver des recettes ici et ici. Dans notre famille nous aimons particulièrement les crêpes à la bière ou au cidre, cela les rend tellement légères.
