Like a game show. 1977. Who made the first crepe and where? She asks. Hard to know. Greeks and Romans. Fruit dipped in berry juice. Egyptians and Hebrews. Salted fish and cheese. Chinese have eggroll. Hungarians have one too! Russians have blintzes. Italian Canneloni. Sweden. Germany. Mexican corn tortillas. Tells the story of Crepe Suzette. He treats the hostess like a child: Can you pronounce that? And mentions how passionate the Italians and French are--making love.
