Buckwheat crêpes with mushrooms en persillade and goat cheese fonduta

A persillade and fresh goat cheese… both are reminiscent of the exuberant flavors of Provence, and they serve as the dual inspiration for this recipe. An essential condiment in so many Provençal dishes, a persillade is a mixture of parsley and garlic that’s chopped up together, allowing the two flavors to merge. And fresh goat cheese, of course, is the national cheese of Provence – you can’t have a Provençal meal without including the creamy cheese in one way or another. In this recipe, we bring the two ingredients together in perfect harmony.

The simple but powerful persillade brings a flavor-punch to the sautéed mushrooms, which make a most delicious stuffing for the crêpes. And as for the goat cheese, it’s melted into a fonduta that adds a marvelous moisture and tanginess to the crêpes. Plus, the fonduta is so easy to make that it comes together in minutes!

Served with grilled or roasted asparagus and a green salad tossed with a lemony vinaigrette, these savory crêpes make for a most delicious and festive main course.
