Crepes with Tomatoes and Butter Hazelnuts

Post sponsored by the French Ministry of Agriculture. See below for more details.

One of my first forays into cooking was for my school’s international dinner night. I was in French class and within the first few weeks of class, I became obsessed with French culture. I thought the language and the art was (and still is) beautiful but the food, oh the food. There’s nothing quite like a meal of French food shared around a table of friends and family (plus any given day I’d gladly take a croissant and coffee for breakfast).

And so, these crepes are a bit of an updated nod to bringing French culture home. We eat savory crepes quite often and the roasted tomatoes tossed with a hazelnut-butter dressing might be my favorite summer treat. When served warm, the St. Agur blue cheese melts a bit into the tomatoes and it’s so rich and delicious. What really brings this meal home is the Trimbach Pinot Blanc.
