Pike Place Market, Seattle, Washington

Whenever I am in Seattle I head to Pike Place Market. There we enjoy true Paris-inspired crepes from a small mom-and pop restaurant Crepes de France.

In 1991, Nany Price knew the Pike Place Market would be the perfect place to open a specialty shop that would reflect her passion for cooking. It started as a small stall with four stools and a stand-up counter. Today, Crêpes de France is enjoying a much larger space in the south end of the Market. Originally from Indonesia, Nany's love of travel has taken her to many places. It was in Paris that she learned to make crêpes.

The café features 15 different types of crêpes that are filled with only the freshest market ingredients such as mozzarella or ricotta cheese, ham, egg, and fresh fruits and vegetables. The most popular crêpe on the menu is filled with salmon, cream cheese, onion and dill with bechamel sauce. Operating the café is a family affair, and the new location is a labor of love for the entire family.

My favourite crepe is Nany's personal favourite and is served by her son Rony: a sweet crêpe filled with fresh strawberries (in season), Nutella and whipped cream.

Nutella and Strawberry
by: Christy Thomas

I love Nutella. I could eat it on cornflakes. This would make a great combination in a crepe!
