Recipe: Crespelle with Red Wine Strawberries and Ricotta

Cullen Campell's recipe for Crespelle with Red Wine Strawberries and Ricotta, adapted by the James Beard Foundation

 

Crespelle may sound exotic, but if you've ever tucked into a crêpe, you already know a good deal about this delicate Italian pancake. Just like their French analogs, crespelle are made by pouring a paper-thin layer of batter into a nicely oiled pan, cooking it until golden on both sides, and wrapping the cake around sweet or savory fillings.

 

In this recipe, chef Cullen Campbell loads fresh ricotta and wine-soaked strawberries into crespelle made with 00 flour, a powder-fine Italian flour that yields a more tender pancake. We like to macerate our berries in a fruit-forward Nebbiolo from Piedmont.

Recipe: Vanilla–Pisco Flan with Roasted Strawberries

Ricardo Zarate's recipe for Recipe: Vanilla–Pisco Flan with Roasted Strawberries, adapted by the James Beard Foundation
