Breakfast at the Bras d'Or Lakes Inn

The Bras d’Or Lakes Inn in St. Peter’s overlooks the famous Bras d’Or Lake, a pristine inland sea carved from the northern extremity of the Appalachian mountain range during the last ice age.

The highlight of our stay at this hotel last week was the breakfast buffet prepared by Chef Jean-Pierre Gillet and his staff.

Chef Jean-Pierre Gillet Preparing a Crêpe.

This morning my choice was a savory crêpe stuffed with mushrooms, onions, and cheese.  It was impressive watching  Jean-Pierre smooth the thin batter over the flat circular hot plate with his wooden spatula.
The wooden spatula used to spread and turn the batter.

And the finished product was oh so good!
