My Pascade

The balance between humility and creation, this is the spirit of this puffed pancake made with eggs and flour and the name alludes to Easter meals in my home region. Originally, this puffed pancake goes from yellow to brown, with a regular and random outline, it is soft and nourishing. Puffed pancake inspires sharing and humility, a universal bread tradition.

 

I wanted to enrich the history of this puffed pancake and to offer garnish culinary compositions to create unique savoury and sweet dishes. The original puffed pancake is the one I've been serving at SaQuaNa for 7 years as an appetizer sprinkled with truffle oil. I also bake five other savoury puffed pancakes and four sweet pancakes which change depending on the week, seasons, products, my desires and moods. That’s all.
