I've tried several of the recipes (both sweet and savory) so far, and they are delicious. Instructions are also provided for reheating crepes, so you can make a big batch of them and then heat up a few whenever you want crepes in minutes. Also, this cookbook is thoughtfully designed to lie flat on your kitchen counter while you cook. I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for an introduction to making delicious crepes at home.
The other thing I loved about this book is that is gave helpful tips and techniques on things like how to reheat and freeze your crepes. It also had a few FAQ's that were helpful. I read the first few pages a few times before actually trying to make them, and the pictures helped. The directions were also very clear.
While the recipes look great and the two I tried were great, I would buy the book just on the valuable tips and basic info on crepes.
One drawback to this book is that Ricotta cheese is used as a filler in virtually all of the savory crepe recipes. This can be a problem if you do not like ricotta cheese or if you do not like it when it is combined with certain foods (e.g. seafood). The recipes for dessert crepes are more varied.
One use is to replace pasta in manicotti; you can substitute spelt or non gluten flour and make a stuffed "pasta" dish that is more digestible for those who cannot eat pasta. Elegant dishes abound here, filled with shrimp, scallops or chicken in cream sauces, or filled with simply jam for desserts. We particularly like the idea here of adding minced sun-dried tomatoes to the crepe batter.
A nice feature of the book is using alternative flours (chestnut, chickpea, corn) which are a great idea for exploring non-wheat dishes. A useful book--you can find that sliced crepes work for noodles. So this is a boon for people who are looking for gluten-free recipes EVEN THOUGH that is not the focus of this book at all and there is plenty of wheat used in recipes here.
