We're trying out pancakes from around the world, looking beyond fluffy pancakes and beyond breakfast food
Having recently "ventured" off to Italy, I thought I'd see what kinds of pancakes are eaten there - and discovered the (apparent) age old question of what came first: the French crepe or the Italian crespelle. Italians claim that Caterina de Medici brought the Italian recipe for crespelle to France when she brought her cooks along in 1533 when married to King Henry II of France, and the French have claimed them as their own since.
Take a look at these beautiful scenes of Italy.

Right, Two canals in Venice. Isn't that stunning?
