Crepes from France

by Mimi & Vera LevinTastemakers in Residence

The summer Olympics are in full swing and many of us are gearing up for the games. My favorite part of watching the Olympics is coming together with family and friends for a little competition of my own - the great Olympics cook off. Grab your neighbors, your parents, your sisters and brothers, your college buddies, or your coworkers and put their skills to the test in a fun, culinary battle. Choose a country, get in your kitchen, and start cooking!
