City Market Livestream: National Crepe Day Cook-along
Join City Market and Anna Mays for a hands-on, cook-along crêpe class in honor of France's National Crêpe Day! Crêpes are a festive, fun-to-make dessert that can be dressed up with any number of toppings. In this livestream class, we will learn to make traditional sweet crêpes (crêpes sucrées) and the classic lemon syrup (sirop de citron) topping that is revered throughout France. We will also discuss fruit, chocolate and dairy topping options and creative ways to use crêpes to build other desserts. We will discuss the origins and customs around crêpe-making in Northwestern France and learn to make traditional Breton crêpes as they are still enjoyed in crêperies throughout Brittany today. We will also review the equipment needed for making authentic crêpes at home and practice some French baking terms as we work. Celebrate the 700+ year history of crêpe making and carry on the National Crêpe Day tradition!
Instructor Anna Mays is an anthropologist who enjoys teaching about world culinary traditions, agricultural practices and the intersection between food, diet, culture, and well-being. Anna trained at Le Cordon Bleu Culinary School and has lived in France.
This class will be held on the Microsoft Teams platform and joining instructions along with an ingredient and equipment list will be sent to participants in advance.
