The creative crêpe champions at Flo’s are always cooking up something special. Deb Caruso discovers what revolution is next for this powerhouse business.

Not content with making us fall in love with crêpes and its savoury sister, galettes, the crew at Flo’s Crêperie have gone extra ‘Francey’ with exciting and delicious new creations, including its own French Cider and an expanded dinner menu.

According to crêpe connoisseur and owner of Flo’s, Florian Guillemard, cider is the ‘go-to’ drink of choice with crêpes.

Growing up in the home of crêpes in Bretagne, France, he should know.

“We’ve been running crêperies for 15 years, so offering our own version of cider was something we always wanted to do,” he said.

“Finding the right partner to make it happen was challenging. We wanted it to be authentic as the way we make cider in France isn’t common in Australia.

“The distance was the main hurdle, so when an opportunity arose with an experienced French cider producer that was a perfect fit, we jumped on it to craft a cider that remains true to its French roots while satisfying Australian palates.”

The result is a range of Traditional, Organic and Rosé ciders full of flavour and a perfect match for both crêpes and galettes.

Florian said the Rosé offered a touch of sweetness with a hint of acidity which complemented the lightness of a galette salad perfectly.

“The Traditional is more dry and crisp so enhances the taste of any of our seafood galettes; and the Organic variety has a bolder apple flavour which pairs beautifully with galettes with strong cheeses like Flo’s Alpine Cheese or a decadent blue cheese special,” he said.

“Ultimately, it’s up to you to decide what your preference is and like anything at Flo’s, to have fun and experiment along the way.”

Helping to make the decision easier, Flo’s offers a cider tasting board, allowing you to explore all three options.

Flo’s French Cider is a unique cider you can’t find anywhere else in Australia.

So, whether you’re a cider enthusiast or cider-curious, it’s a must-try!

French cider isn’t the only thing Flo’s are cooking up.

Dinner is about to get a little more Francey in May with the introduction of an expanded dinner menu featuring classic French dishes with a Flo’s twist.

Developing the menu is long-time friend of Flo’s, François Poulard, who delivered the sold-out Go With the Flo tasting dinners last year and brings experience from working in multiple Michelin-starred kitchens in France, Belgium, the UK and Switzerland, before moving to Sydney in 2014 to work at Matt Moran’s Aria and later, becoming head chef of Chiswick Woollahra.

We’ll raise a glass (of cider) to that!
