Meet Creperie Breizh, an authentic French creperie on wheels
An "authentic French creperie on wheels" started rolling on the streets of Baltimore last November.
Its name is Creperie Breizh -- Breizh is the Breton (Celtic) name for Brittany.
The owner are Missy and Eric Coatrieux. He is from Brittany, she is from around here; he trained racehorses in the United States in Canada, she was an equestrian. They met, working for the same trainer, in Florida.
The crepes are made with all fresh ingredients -- early favorites include the Normandy, with apple, brie and chicken, and a sweet crepe with raspberry and white chocolate.
Getting a food truck rolling is tough -- the City and the County have different, and sometimes daunting, licensing and regulation procedures.
But the Coatrieux had a leg-up. The happen to be neighbors, just outside of Reisterstown, with Christine Richardson from the Iced Gems cupcake truck. "She went out of her way to help us" Missy Coatrieux told me.
