Crepes, Waffles & Pancakes
by Kathryn Hawkins

Reviewed by Elliot Essman

As a chef who has always believed pancakes could be more than a sticky stack of syrup- drenched paste on a plate, it is refreshing to enjoy Crepes, Waffles & Pancakes. Well conceived and filled with lush photographs, the book expands the bounds of the category, giving us delights like the Deep-Pan Pancake, a cross between a pancake and a pizza, shrimp- filled Jambalaya Pancakes, a Prawn and Mango Pancake Basket (using pancake batter to share an edible basket), and over 100 others.

The waffles section moves ambitiously into the realm of ther main course: Spicy Lamb and Chickpea Waffles, Poppy Seed Waffles with Ratatouille, Spicy Tomato Waffles with Pork. Specialties like south Indian Dosas with spicy potato sauce, Blintzes, and the wonderful classic Cherry Clafoutis round out this excellent kitchen resource. Top -- Culinary Reviews Home
