Olen lettukokki! ~ Crêpes, s’il vous plaît!

Today is the official crêpe day! Crêpe is a thin pancake type food, which can be eaten savory or sweet, just like a Finnish ‘lettu’. To celebrate this great day, Morgane and Getuar came over to my place to bake crêpes together! Morgane brought a surprise ingredient: goat’s cheese!

Morgane had a recipe ready, and there we listed the ingredients in French, English and Finnish, so everyone could learn something new! Also, we could revise the numbers when reading how many grams of everything we needed for the mix. “Soixsante grams de sucre! – Sixty grams of sugar – Kuusikymmentä grammaa sokeria!” We didn’t really have a scale so we just estimated the amounts with flour and sugar but still the crêpes turned out delicious! We added some chocolate spread on top of it, it was so very delicious. I ate so many my tummy hurt! Morgane also made a crêpe with goat’s cheese, honey, and almonds, I have never tasted something like that, it was quite interesting.IMG-20170202-WA0020

Making crêpes was very fun, the flipping part was scary at first, I was afraid that I would throw the whole damn crêpe to the sink by accident. But everything went better than expected and I succeeded on my first try! I had a great teacher, after all ;)!

To make the evening even more French, welistened to some French music, and I tried to listen to and recognize some words that I would understand, I remembered things like: une fleur – a flower, chercher – to look for, travailler – to work… It was fun and develops your language ear!
