The next of our new lines for 2018 is the relaunch of our crepe cart hire service. Delicious soft french crepes, topped with fresh fruit, cream, and various sauces and toppings.
The Latin, crispus meaning curled, led to the French word Crepe. Originating in the Breton region of France, between the English Channel to the north and the Southern Bay of Biscay.
Making crepes has evolved from being cooked on large cast iron plates heated over a wood fire, to modern hot plates that are now gas or electric heated.
Celebrations With Crepes
We celebrate pancake day, or Shrove Tuesday, usually around the second week in February, while the French have their “Pancake Day”, on 2nd February, during a holiday known as Fete de la Chandeleur or jour des crepes, during which it is traditional to hold a coin in your writing hand and a crepe pan in the other, and flip the crepe into the air. Your family will be prosperous if you manage to catch the crepe in the pan.
An International Dessert
Popular throughout Europe, the dessert has numerous names, inlcuding crespella (Italy), palacsintas (Hungary), blintzes (Jewish) plattars (Scandanavia), blini (Russia) and the Greek kreps.
Savoury Or Sweet
We offer both types of crepes, sweet for dessert, or as a savoury crepe with meats, cheeses, salad etc. This allows us to tailor the service to suit any requirements when you book our crepe cart hire.
