It isn't often that you order a dish and then linger nearby as the chef puts your delicious meal together, ingredient by ingredient.

For starters? Few restaurants boast open kitchens, and encouraging guests to watch the meal-making process, interesting though it definitely is, isn't always high on a restaurant's must-do list.

But there is a place where you can admire the pros as they create the memorable cuisine you're soon to dig into: The French Crêpe Company at the Original Farmers Market.

And thanks to the masterful artists deftly working before the eatery's iconic griddles, watching a crepe come together is an act that is as enjoyable as eating it a few minutes later.

From the initial batter pour to the fascinating-to-watch flipping of the crepe, it's difficult not to be entranced by the process of cooking a pocket-perfect delight.

How, though, can you make one of The French Crêpe Company's best-known dishes on your own?

The Original Farmers Market series "Market Menu Favorites" is here to help home cooks.

The most recent entry in the series shines a spotlight on the beloved stand and its La Normandie Crepe.

This special, centerstage crepe, which includes chicken, mushrooms, and other appetizing additions, has a special price through Jan. 20, 2021: It's $10, a buck off the usual price.
