Happy National Crepes Suzette Day! To celebrate this food holiday, I made a little field trip…
to the Crepe Cellar in Charlotte, NC. Prior to celebrating Crepes Suzette day, I had never eaten a Crepes Suzette. Without the knowledge of what the dish should taste or look like, I decide that this would be a great dish to let the experts handle.
This turned out to be a great idea. Traditionally, Crepes Suzette is a sweet crepe topped with a sauce made of sugar, butter, orange, and Gran Marnier. The chef flambes these ingredients to create the delicious caramelized sauce.
This sauce is poured over the sweet crepes and topped with vanilla ice cream.
It might look soup, but it is incredibly delicious. Now that I have tried and am familiar with what a Crepes Suzette is, I think I will have to try making one for myself. This recipe looks like a pretty good place to start.
Happy Crepes Suzette Day and have a great weekend! Next week, I will show you how I took these shots inside a restaurant and give you a guide of how you can take great pictures of your food while dining out! Have a great weekend!
