ARTISAN STREET FOOD CRÊPERIE
Usually when people think of a Crêperie, their minds wander to the Nutella stuffed pancake that is hard to resist… but this time, don’t be deceived by your initial thought.
Established by two friends: a french Crêpe Master and a creative chef, Krep is a result of their faith in a street food concept of classic cuisine that can be exciting and unpredictable.
At Krep, sweet pancakes (crêpes) are everyone’s guilty pleasure, but it’s the galettes that make us proud of what we do. A Galette, or more precisely Galette de Sarrasin, is a speciality of Brittany (region of France) and for centuries was the staple food for Bretons.
Known by many different names such as: crêpe salée, crêpes de blé noir or galette bretonne, this is a deep brown-coloured pancake made from buckwheat flour, lending a wonderful nutty flavour that can be filled with almost anything from cheddar, egg & bacon to sous vide pork neck. Unlike wheat flour crepes, our galettes are naturally gluten-free.
For the long tradition of french crêperies and true love for simple good food, we never cuts corners. Organic flour from Yorkshire Millers, locally sourced ingredients, seasonal menus and homemade toppings – this is what we are known for.
. . .OR MAYBE BOTH?
Galettes Bretonnes are typically eaten with savoury toppings.
Our galette batter is made the original Breton way - simply from water and buckwheat flour (naturally GLUTEN-FREE).
Crepes are generally for sweet fillings and made with organic flour from Yorkshire Millers, free-range eggs, fresh milk and sugar.
But remember - nothing is impossible... If you wish to have gluten free Nutella pancake - this is not a problem for us!
BUY LOCALLY, EAT SEASONALLY, USE YOUR INTUITION (AND IMAGINATION!)
Small businesses contribute to local economies by bringing growth and innovation to the community in which the business is established. When you shop at local butchers, bakers, farm shops and green grocers, it is likely that a decent percentage of the produce has had a short field-to-fork journey. Along with supporting local farmers, it means the food is likely to contain more nutrients and have less packaging.
This is what we believe in and that's why all the products that we use are locally sourced where possible. Our meat is from a local butcher, our flour from Yorkshire Organic Millers, eggs and milk form neighbouring farms.
As a creperie serving coffee we also decided to source from ROOST Coffee - a family-run coffee roastery based in Malton.
