As The Boy is out on Valentine’s night (I know, right?!) we decided to combine Pancake Day and Valentine’s into a sort of Pancake-Valentines-Date Night. Luckily enough the lovely folk at La Crêperie de Sophie were having a Crêpes and Cider Night as well as a Valentine’s evening thingy. How convenient!
On with the food – 3 courses of pancakes. NOM! I didn’t get a photo of the first plate – a savoury taster platter – because we ate them far too quickly. That’s always a risk when lovely food is put before you, you might eat it. I had a savoury crêpe called Sweet Billy for my main. It was filled with goats cheese, walnuts and onion chutney. I’ve never had a savoury crêpe before. I will be eating more savoury crêpes as it was AMAZING. Ant had The Paysan which was filled with garlic mushrooms, cheese and red onion. That was also lovely.
Dessert was, funnily enough, also crêpes! I had a chocolate one (it should have been Chocolat-Banane but I hate bananas so it was just chocolate and crumbled biscuits) and Ant had The Sophie’s which was milk and white Belgian chocolate, fresh strawberries, cream and roasted almonds.
Loic, the owner, gave a little talk on the history of crêpes and of the company and then we had a quiz. Which we won.I also made a proper crepe on the big griddle. It was a good one too, even if I was a bit stuffed to eat it all (Pickle shared when we got home)! We had a great night, really recommend it to anyone who loves pancakes and/or cider.
