Before we set out on our two week crêpe making journey courtesy of Martha Holmberg's Crêpes, it's important that we begin with a foundation. These Versatile Crêpes are the brown buttery base for all of the recipes within the book.

Holmberg's go-to crêpe recipe gets its lovely nutty flavor from beurre noisette, an extra step which makes all of the difference in the world in lending a great toastiness to the crêpes.

And while this batter is bang up, please be prepared to toss at least one or two of your first crêpes. It's just one of those inevitable things that's bound to happen on the road to great crêpe making.
