Lunch At The Creperie

Yesterday, we did what everyone should do at least once when visiting France - we had a meal at a creperie. Adam took us to one of his favourites - Creperie Beaurepaire in old Lille. We sat in the cellar portion of the restaurant, surrounded by brickwork, with lamps on the tables, and a warm and comfortable atmosphere.

And the meal! Mon Dieu! We started with savory crepes (I had ham, egg, mushroom, and cheese), cider and dry white wine, followed by a dessert crepe. I chose the St. Malo, a crepe with vanilla ice cream (obviously made with real vanilla beans), a rich caramel sauce, and generous dollops of whipping cream.  I would have to rank it as the best caramel dessert I have ever eaten.

The crepe I had there a few weeks ago had so much cheese that I couldn't eat dessert. I will regret this for the rest of my life.

So jealous! Sounds so wonderful! (BTW: Pound cake was delicious and recipe passed on - hope you don't mind.)

This makes me hungry. Like, angry hungry.
