Aside from the book being beautifully written and illustrated, the real test is in the recipes. I just got the book and have only made the basic crepe so far--and it was so delicious--the author's tip on using browned butter (and how to make it), as well as her detailed instructions on the special steps needed in properly concocting crepes (think letting the batter rest in the fridge overnight) helped me create truly delectable crepes with a sublime texture. And the author clearly explained how to freeze them for later. And they freeze and reheat beautifully. I can't wait to try more recipes from the book.

How can something so seemingly simple be so varied and tasty? Crepes is the subject of this book and our culinary wonder. In fact the crepe could be one of the definitions for the business term KISS (keep it simple and sweet) and the definition in turn could sum up crepes. Simple and sweet (unless you have a savoury one then it would be `Simple and Savoury'.
In this hardback book the author presents 50 savoury and sweet recipes, showing the true variety and real diversity of the humble crepe, whether served up with something on the side or served `solus'. Whether it is for breakfast, brunch, an afternoon snack or something later on at night, there invariably will be a crepe (of three) for you. Naturally these can be viewed as building blocks, where the limit is only your imagination and the contents of your food cupboard.
Beginning with a great overview to crepes, crepe making and the all important tools (don't worry, it isn't really that complex, but sometimes it can be very easy to make mistakes on things that are very easy to do!). There can also be many opinions about the definitive way to make something very simple. Some people will swear by certain ingredients above all others. At the end of the day, unless you have your own "winning recipe" and will just use this book for advanced enlightenment, you would not go wrong by following the author's basic recipes and graduate on to the more elaborate, advanced stuff (!) in due course.
From the get go it is clear that the author has put some thought into her recipes. It is not just add a dollop of jam or cream and maybe a biscuit. The first savoury recipe is for `Pesto & Creme Fraiche Crepes with Arugula Salad". Rather posh, you might think, but it shows what a versatile thing the crepe can be.

In overall the book is pretty well organized and written with different recipes for Sweet & Savory crepes. Too bad that there are just a few pictures. I wish in the next edition they can add a picture of each recipe so that can get an idea of how the crepe looks like.
