09/06/10 - Crespiou

This has been a terrible year for the local vegetables. Usually, we can start making crespiou some time in July, but this year we have seen a dearth of vegetables. We finally gave it a try, in September, and we managed to scrape together five layers:
  • lacinato kale with anchovies
  • baby potatoes and onions
  • green beans
  • tomatoes, garlic, basil and pine nuts
  • zucchini with garlic, oregano, thyme and dry cured black olives
We usually go for six, or even eight. (In case you are wondering, each layer is a little two egg omelet, and they all get stacked together before being sliced like a layer cake.) It was a very nice crespiou, but 2010 was not one of our great crespiou years.
