Where to eat Crepes and Pets de Nonnes in Aix-en-Provence

Contributor blog post by Aixcentric:

What with Chandeleur in France and Pancake Tuesday in the UK, February is a good time to get whipping up some batter for pastries and crepes. But if you prefer to buy something in town, there’s lots of choice.

The traditional pets de nonnes – nuns’ farts  – are in the artisanal boulangeries in town – just under 4 euros for 100g of the delicious sugary pastries that are much more fragrant than their name suggests!

…Continue reading here for Lynne’s three choices for places to eat crepes in Aix-en-Provence on February 13, 2018 Pancake Tuesday (Chandeleur), or any day when you get the urge.

Foodie note: Pets de nonnes are also called nun’s puffs. Made with a sweet choux batter these little balls that are light, deep-fried beignets once cooked.

Aixcentric was set up by Lynne Alderson three years ago as a channel to send out info on events taking place around Aix as well as news, relevant books, the latest films, new shops and of course where to eat locally. Why?

According, to Lynne:

"It came about out of frustration with the lack of communication in the town. Posters would suddenly go up about an event that week. No prewarning. I had difficulty too in finding information from many of the tourist offices. Things are slowly getting better and there is sometimes information in English. Hopefully by keeping an eagle eye on the local press and talking with contacts in town, I can publicize fun things that people would otherwise miss. It's a ragbag of info that I come across on my travels. I've published nearly 600 posts now and have lots of followers so hopefully, it is fulfilling its role of helping people, residents and visitors alike, get the most of their time in Aix."
