Growing up, we had several traditions in my house: chocolate was always shared, no monopoly game was ever finished, and getting the first crepe on a Sunday morning was a good enough reason to go to war against your siblings! No, it was not because we were too impatient, but because due to the pan being too hot, the first crepe was always slightly overcooked, and there was nothing else like it! (The same way that the solitary curly fry that got accidentally mixed in with your order of regular fries always tastes the best!)
If only we’d known about the existence of Gavottes! Established in 1920, this brand takes one of the most common mistakes that is overcooking the first pancake (or, in this case, crepe), and turns it into a culinary masterpiece! In this selection of their products, you can find everything you need to avoid sibling rivalry and let your neighbors live a peaceful life.
Crepe Dentelle are classic crepes that have been purposefully overcooked in order to develop a firmer, crispier texture and turn into the most delicious snacks! You can enjoy them with your cup of coffee or tea, a glass of milk, with some peanut butter, or entirely on their own. From the original flavor to chocolate and caramel - they come in all of the classic combinations that never disappoint! Even if you’re not the biggest fan of sweet treats, you can enjoy our Boursin cheese & garlic crepes to experience what the simplest culinary masterpieces taste like! And if you’re on the go a lot, there are always some mini crepe dentelles to delight in!
How about something even crispier, though? Gavottes wafers, perhaps? From classic rolled wafers to more whimsical fan eventail dentelle wafers - there is something for every craving! Drizzle them with some salted caramel, dip them in chocolate, crumble on top of some ice cream or slather them in peanut butter (all of the above is also an option) - possibilities are endless, so customize these French wafers however you want!
Hint: If you’ve never tried microwaving the caramel-filled French wafer bites for a few seconds before eating them, you should definitely give it a go! There are very few delights in this world more rewarding than some oozy salted caramel!
So try out these intriguing French snacks and make sure you always have a box or two of Gavottes in your pantry for those sugary cravings! And if after all the brand new discoveries you start missing the ultimate classics, our butter caramel and vanilla fine galettes are always here to save the day!
