National Crepe Suzette Day

Every May 6th, we commemorate National Crepe Suzette Day, an occasion to relish a delectable dish with a captivating backstory. As one account goes, in 1895, a 15-year-old assistant waiter named Henri Charpentier at Monte Carlo's Cafe de Paris accidentally concocted this culinary delight. While preparing a meal for Prince Edward of Wales and the esteemed French noble dame Suzette, Charpentier unintentionally botched a sauce for the crepes but serendipitously created a delicious new dish. In honor of the occasion, the prince christened it "Crepe Suzette."
