Crepes: Sweet and Savory

Light and delicate, sweet or savory, crepes are realizing a renaissance and gaining renewed appreciation as an impressive, yet deceptively easy entree or dessert presentation.


IN THIS ISSUE, we're joining the crepe revival by delving into the basics of making crepes, then enjoying them folded in a sweet citrusy crepe, a savory seafood crepe, then stacked in a very remarkable Gateau de Crepes. Crepes beg for improvisation and we get you started with some inspirational ideas.

Bring a Bag!
Bring a Bag, Feed a Family

We'd like to take this time to THANK YOU for making our Bring a Bag, Feed a Family campaign such a huge success! Since beginning the effort in late 2009, you have helped us raise over $1965.60 for the Greensboro Urban Ministry's Food Bank!

Every time a customer makes a purchase and brings their own shopping bag, a dime is put in the "Feed a Family" cookie jar. The contents of the jar are then donated to the Greensboro Urban Ministry Food Bank. This allows us to help the environment by using fewer disposable bags, and also help Greensboro's families in need!
