Best crêpes - 2000
On weekend mornings, the three chefs at Trattoria Stella, a groovy little bistro in northwest Denver, take a look at what's fresh in the fruit market that day, then stir up some highly desirable crêpe combinations. First they pour fresh egg batter into a crêpe pan and fry it golden, then fill the crêpe with such delights as locally grown blueberries and blackberries, or nectarines and raspberries, or just-picked strawberries -- each filling gently cooked in a simple syrup so that the fruit's natural sugars come out and play. And if all of this isn't enough to make you rise and shine, consider the fresh whipped cream, enormous blobs of it, melting all over the thin, fluffy crêpe and oozing into the fruity syrup. Stel-la!
