Crepes are one of my favorite snacks and always a highlight of visiting France. My favorites are cheese and ham as a savory snack, while a banana and Nutella crepe is my favorite sweet snack. I took this picture while visiting the Strasbourg Christmas market. The cheese and ham crepe being prepared was the one I ordered. It was yummy!
In preparation for a vacation on Fuerteventura, one of the Canary Islands, I read about the local food – wrinkly potatoes. They are small baked potatoes with a pepper sauce. Despite the name, I was very excited to try them. Fuertevenutra is a resort island and the town we stayed in was very touristy and oriented towards a German crowd. I found Schnitzel but no wrinkly potatoes. We rented a car and headed inland and found a wonderful little city, Betancuria, located in a lush valley. It was very picturesque, and this small restaurant fit right in. We ordered a plate of tapas, including wrinkly potatoes. This was the best food all trip. The wrinkly potatoes did not disappoint. Everything was excellent and local. If you have the opportunity, do order papas arrugadas.
