Let’s break each of these 4 Delicious Cheese-Filled Crêpe Recipes and wine pairings down for you!
Blue Cheese Crêpe: Fourme d’Ambert with Toasted Walnuts and Dill Crème Frâiche
Wine Pairing: French Riesling or Gewürztraminer
These crêpes are a great way to use this impressive European bleu cheese from France. As far as bleu cheeses go, this is on the mild end of the spectrum. The texture is creamy, and the taste is perfectly salty and pungent that it will take you right to South-Central France!
Pairing Fourme d’Ambert with toasted walnuts and dill allow the cheese to be the star of the dish, while bringing complimentary flavors and some texture to the crêpe. Some crème frâiche to top the whole thing off and you can’t go wrong!
Brie Crêpes with Marinated Chicken, Fennel and Pistachios with Brown Butter
Wine Pairing: Beaujolais or Pinot Noir
A savory crêpe with brie is a homerun dish that looks, smells, and tastes so impressive! But using a true French brie takes crêpes to a whole new level. Pairing brie with this delicately marinated chicken and fennel is almost magical and can easily turn this dish into a main meal or provide an excellent starter.
The creamy brie gets a partner for texture, as pistachios bring a bit of a crunch as well as a harmonious flavor to the crêpe. And to top it all off – brown butter, or beurre noisette. The flavor of brown butter is rich and delicious and adds the right finishing touch to a creamy brie crêpe!
Bûche de Chèvre Crêpes with Almonds and Strawberries with a Strawberry Gastrique
Wine Pairing: Brut Champagne, dry sparkling wine, or Cava
This is a semi-sweet crêpe that really can be served at any stage of a meal. Chèvre, or “goat cheese,” is a great accompaniment to strawberries, but this Bûche de Chèvre truly is a unique cheese. The flavor is not too strong, but it is markedly different from common goat’s cheeses. This chèvre is extremely soft in the center at room temperature – almost melty! Paired with strawberries and almonds this crêpe stands out!
The strawberry gastrique brings just enough sweetness and sourness to the dish to pair well with the chèvre.
Camembert Crêpes with Apples and Cinnamon, Topped with Calvados Caramel
Wine Pairing: Hard Cider (dry) or Moscato d’Asti
This dessert crêpe is a great way to end any meal. Apples and an apple infused caramel sauce compliment the buttery camembert perfectly. From France’s North coast, Normandie to be specific, camembert is a delightful and very rich cheese. Although like brie in some ways, camembert is a little more assertive in flavor and slightly denser. Its earthy taste lends itself to sweetening up a little – especially with apples and caramel.
