What is the difference between a crêpe (pancake) and a galette?
How many crêpes can you make in 1hr?
On average, 1 chef can cook about 45 sweet crêpes or 35
How much power do you need?
With the electric machines please note that we need to plug them into a WALL SOCKET within 10m of our tables. We’ll bring our specialist extension lead to connect to it if necessary but cannot plug into another extension lead as it won’t accommodate the voltage of our machines, so it has to be into a wall socket for each machine.
How much time do you need to set up?
For our standard set up we’re ready to go in about 45min but will typically arrive 1 hour in advance just in case. However, please let us know if there are any access/unloading/parking restrictions as these might impact our timings.
Can you cater in historic buildings?
We would recommend that you check with your venue first if they are happy to accommodate outside caterers and if they are, we would be happy to liaise directly with them to discuss their requirements.
How much space do you need?
If you want us outside in our gazebo, then we need a 3m x 3m space, if possible in an area sheltered from the wind. If inside, 2m x 2m is largely sufficient for our standard set up.
Do you cater to specific allergies?
The good news is that our
We offer a variety of toppings to cater to every taste and although we do clean our griddles thoroughly in between each crêpe, we
What about health & safety?
We are fully registered and are regularly inspected by environmental health who awarded us a 5/5 star rating for food hygiene & catering safety. Moreover, we are fully food safe trained and insured and our equipment is regularly tested. We bring a fire extinguisher and a fire blanket to each event and are happy to provide you with all the certificates or risk assessment required to keep your mind at peace.
Can you also provide drinks or other foods?
We would be happy to. We can provide you with soft and hot drinks, salads, nibbles and more.
What makes you better than other crêpe providers?
We pride ourselves in making all our batter by hand from scratch, using only the freshest ingredients, not powdered mix! Our toppings are also freshly prepared, whether it’s homemade salted caramel, chocolate sauce a fresh mushroom medley. Moreover, we use traditional recipes and techniques from France such as buckwheat flour for our galettes which makes a huge difference.
The proof is in the pudding: just check our client’s testimonials and our awards!
Where can I try your products?
What do you need to set up?
Well… pretty much nothing! We bring everything we need for our crêpe station, including tables, gazebo, table clothes, machines, disposable cones & cutlery. The only thing we might need is power to use our crêpe machines or if we need to plug in
How far do you travel?
We typically travel to and around London within 1h, 1h30 of where we are based – in SW London.
Can you cater outside?
Absolutely. We can bring a gazebo and work outside.
Can you personalise your set up to fit a theme?
Yes! We can print our menus on your stationery. We can use our yellow polka dots table cloth or white linen or your own. And we can even wear your company t-shirts or uniforms if you want us too!.
Does your crêpe machine make a lot of smoke?
There is a bit of steam coming from the griddle so to avoid setting off the fire alarm and having the fire department join the party (as nice as it would be), we recommend that you deactivate or neutralize your fire alarm for the duration of our cooking (taping a plastic bag over it usually does the trick). If possible, it is also good idea to place us next to a window or door for aeration but this is not mandatory.
Do you have liability insurance?
Absolutely, we are covered for up to £1 million. Please just ask if you would like a certificate.
Are crêpes going to be enough or do I need other foods alongside?
It all depends on your event, most of the time they are plenty enough but if we are the main caterer and you have a large number of guests we would suggest you have a couple of nibbles alongside for people whilst they wait to get their crepe. A simple green salad is also a lovely accompaniment to our
Do you cater for public events such as school or charity fairs?
Although are main focus is with private clients, we like to take part in the community and already participate in several public and school events in London. Follow us on Facebook for dates and details. If you are organising an event and would be interested in having us, please do get in touch!
