These so called crepes are way too thick! They should not be called crepes either as they are made with buckwheat flour (fleur de sarassin or sarassin flour) and therefore they are called gallettes in France. Gallettes are for savoury (salé) and crepes are for dessert (sucre). In France they do not make such thick crepes or gallettes. There is way too much batter in the pan, there should be at least a third less to be authentic. What a pity because this is well intentioned and a good idea to show on video.
