The nimble foodsmiths at Flip Crêpes impart their wisdom to small groups with 2.5-hour classes that imbue students with the know-how to craft their own delicate delights. Instructors guide 6–12 attendees per session through the creation of their own crepe batter from scratch, teaching the proper cooking techniques with a pan, traditional griddle, and industrial steamroller. Guests can eat the freshly flipped comestibles they craft after first loading them with heaps of either sweet or savory ingredients, based on the class chosen. The sweet class whips up sugar-laden treats before concluding with the creation of a decadent banana-foster crepe, and the savory class yields students a gratin de crepe au jambon et fromage—with ham and cheese. After class, students take home a copy of the recipe to encrypt into Wingdings for safekeeping and with which to impress salivating brunch guests.

Flip Crêpes and Flip Chefs
Flip Crêpes got its start on the Chicago Farmers Markets circuit in 2003, slinging its warm and sweet or savory treats to steadily growing flocks of customers. Eventually, the company outgrew its humble beginnings and expanded to a location inside the Ogilvie Transportation Center, where customers stop in for the crowd-pleasing crepes alongside a burgeoning roster of sandwiches and paninis. Four distinct menus address any and all cravings the day might present, including selections that tackle breakfast munchies with eggs and bacon, a passion for the savory with toasted options, salad cravings with fresh and crisp selections, and sweet teeth with desserts chock-full of Nutella, strawberries, and dulce de leche. The tender crepes will only wrap their eggy arms around healthy, high-quality ingredients, so the chefs avoid high-fructose corn syrup and other undesirable foodstuffs.
