The French word for 'pancake,' which is exactly what these light, paper-thin creations are. They can be made from plain or sweetened batters with various flours, and used for savory or dessert dishes. Dessert crepes may be spread with a jam or fruit mixture, rolled or folded and sometimes flamed with brandy or liqueur. Savory crepes are filled with various meat, cheese or vegetable mixtures-sometimes topped with a complement sauce and served as a first or main course.
