Crepes with Summer Vegetables and Baby Swiss

I had an amazing time doing the first cooking demonstration at the Oakwood Farmers’ Market. I love food, cooking and talking to people about food and cooking. The market was the perfect place to meet so many wonderful people and share my love of all things food.

Below you will find the recipes for the crepes I created at the market.  Those who tasted them said they were delicious.

Savory Crepes with Summer Vegetables
Yields 10
This filling works great for both white flour and buckwheat creaps. Buckwheat crepes are a whole grain crepe with a very earthy flavor to them. I was pleasently supprised how many people at the market preferd the buckwheat to the white flour crepes.
