Posted in Caro Diario.(dear diary..), cucina, and recipes

crepes.jpgHas anyone out there ever thought about this or researched this..are crepes French or Italian?

In my research about Caterina DeMedici-the Italian responsible for bringing high cuisine to France and some other thingsĀ  fromFlorence to France like the place setting.. I think that the crepe -which is known as crespelle in Italian -was originally Italian and then brough to France.. Let me know what you think?

If there are any food historians out there, let me know if my research is correct..

For more great recipes get your copy of the best selling book The Basic Art of Italian Cooking at
