Drink pairing tips

  • Pinot Blanc with your cheese and spinach pancake

    A cheese and spinach pancake can be tricky to find a white wine pairing for. We would suggest trying Pinot Blanc. It will pair nicely with the food and complete the meal thanks to its smooth and dry.

  • A next-level pairing for Tokaji

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

  • 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.

Fun facts

  • Wallet breaking omelette

    The most expensive omelette costs a whopping$1,000! Would you be willing to pay$1,000 for a fancy Zillion Dollar Lobster Frittata?

  • The record holder

    How big was the largest waffle ever made? The correct answer is 8 feet 1 inch in diameter , a record achieved in Gouda, the Netherlands in 2013.

  • A long time ago
