Crepes for NorCal - 100% of Proceeds Donated to World Central Kitchen California Wildfire Relief
Los Angeles, CA
I’ll keep this one short and sweet. I think we all know what crepes are, and how widely they can vary from cook to cook and restaurant to restaurant. However, crepes will ALWAYS have an incredibly special place in my heart. Let me explain why. If you didn’t already know, I gained my love of cooking from my mom. One of her signature dishes was, without a doubt, her crepes. Every Saturday morning would be a crepe buffet. Stacks of perfect pillowy circles of love, and a variety of toppings for everyone to enjoy. You can imagine that a sleepover at the Sasto household was a prized invitation to score. Now while you may have your own crepe recipe, or may not even be interested in brunch, that is not the focus here. Instead, the focus is Northern California. The small local communities, farmers, and families have been devastated by rampant wildfires. Some have lost their entire livelihoods. And with a looming pandemic, many do not have anywhere to turn to or anyway to find shelter from the spreading inferno. 100% of the proceeds from this week’s class will be donated to World Central Kitchen’s support and relief efforts by those directly affected by the disaster. -- Upon reserving your space, you will immediately receive a welcome note with the private links.

Mom’s Crepe Recipe
It’s no secret that Mom’s crepes were the best. If you’ve ever wondered how to make these French treats at home, now you can, all while supporting a great cause.
Its about the "Whys" not the "Hows"
Understanding the why's and how's of a recipe are far more important than a list of amounts and ingredients. A recipe is merely a road map, passed from one cook to the next. What makes a recipe special is the personal touch that each cook imprints on it to make it their own. Having the knowledge of "why" you do something, instead of just reading a recipe card will give you the confidence and skills to carve your own path in the kitchen. At the end of the lesson, you will feel confident enough to take this recipe and put your own touches on it, truly making it your own.
Enough is enough, Nutella gets all the attention, but when in fact, there are other really great things you can put on crepes that are sure to satisfy any sweet tooth. Finally everyone, including those with a nut allergy, will have a sweet and silky, cocoa condiment to enjoy. NUT FREE! Hooray!!
Leftover Egg Whites
There is no shortage of ideas when it comes to what to put on crepes. But I always get asked what to do with all of those pesky leftover egg whites from pasta making. So in order to spread the love, and potentially peak the interest of pasta people who aren’t interested in brunch can still learn something new while benefiting a worthy charity. I’ll share with you a recipe for a sweet and easy treat that is not only good on crepes, but will become a household staple.
