Drink pairing tips

  • The best drink pairing for berry pancake

    Knowing what to pair with berry pancake can be tricky. It’s worth exploring some pink wine, particularly a glass of Rosé. This, sweet, pink wine balances the fresh berry pancake.

  • Pair Port with pancake with chocolate sauce

    Not sure what red wine to drink with your pancake with chocolate sauce? Try Port. The strong flavors will pair nicely with the food and complete the meal.

  • The perfect complement to apple and cinnamon filled crepe


    Experts recommend pairing a apple and cinnamon filled crepe with a glass of Tokaji, a popular dessert wine.

Factoids

  • An iconic duo: breton apple cider & crepe

    If you’re gonna be eating crepe, then we’d advise washing it down with a nice breton apple cider.

  • Eggs Benedict milestone

    Eggs Benedict has an interesting history, but it is generally agreed upon that it originates from The United States. The tasty dish has become immensely popular and sought after throughout the world.

  • The world record from the Netherlands

    110 pounds 4 ounces is the record for the biggest waffle. We hope people were hungry!
