Preparation

Start by making the dough for the crepes: mix the flour, milk, butter and eggs. Make sure you get a smooth mixture. Season with some salt. Let the batter stand for half an hour. Meanwhile pre-heat the oven to 180°C. Take a saucepan and dissolve all the cheeses, stirring with a wooden spoon, and adding a little milk if necessary to get the right creamy consistency. Add a good grinding of pepper and nutmeg to give flavour and character to the cream. Then return to your pancake batter. Make the crepes with a frying pan lightly greased with oil or butter. Put them to one side as you make them. When they’re all done, take them one by one and spread them with the melted cheese. Roll up the crepes and arrange them all in a row in a pan lined with baking parchment. Sprinkle with plenty of parmesan and add some butter. Bake in the pre-heated oven for half an hour. For the last 5 minutes turn on the grill. Serve hot, accompanied by a large salad of fresh, crisp mixed vegetables.

Tips
Don’t forget that making crepes is a real art: use a frying pan with a diameter which is not too wide and, above all, keep it well-oiled.
Trivia
