The Fresser

The Crepe Escape

Covid may have stamped all over our plans, but we're finding ways to have fun

Our Fresser end of year fun has been killed by Covid-19.

To be honest, I was already anxious about our planned trip to a country cottage with my parents. I was nervous of sharing more than seasonal gifts. Especially when the mini Fressers have been at school — my son mixing with thousands of secondary-aged children.

So Boris did us a favour when he made his announcement last Shabbat.

Like many others, our plans for school holidays are down the drain - but I’m determined to keep on having fun! 

Today’s treat was a trip to the new kosher takeaway crepe stand outside Temple Fortune restaurant, One Ashbourne. I wrote about the new milky option to the meaty regular restaurant here.

We arrived as it opened and left with big smiles on our faces.

The menu is short — they’re keeping it simple to start with. I picked the savoury option – three cheeses; my daughter went full choc with a (home-made) Nutella style, chocolate/hazelnut sauce paired with bananas; and my boy picked the blueberry crumble option — blueberry compote and crumble topping. 

The Nutella-style sauce was smooth, creamy and addictively good. My simple, cheesy crepe was  melty, gooey and gone in minutes, as was the blueberry crumble crepe. Both excellent.

If you need a bit of sparkle in this gloomy December, the One Ashbourne Crepe and Shake stall is a must-visit. But make sure you keep that social distance!
