(A much better experience shared in part 2 -- April 2012)
The Oregon Crepe Company is located in Silverton, Oregon. But today (5/18/11), I had a chance to sample a sweet crepe from the Oregon Crepe Company at the Salem Wednesday Farmer's Market.
The two people manning the booth were very nice. There were quite a few selections to choose from, but I opted for one of their specials, a simple sweet crepe with strawberries and whip cream.
The workers admitted that the crepes they used on this dish had been pre-made (in other words, just sitting out for a while) because they felt a fresh, hot crepe would melt the whip cream and not make it as good-looking. Point well taken, but the problem is the crepe becomes a little harder to work with.
I was served a nice-sized portion, a couple of crepes in there. While it was OK, it did not blow me away at all. While I liked that each crepe was filled with fresh strawberries and whip cream, it needed something more to really bring it over the top. Perhaps I should have put some maple syrup or chocolate sauce on there, or perhaps a berry jam.
Good attempt, but I'll probably wait until I am craving a crepe to eat this again.
