History of Chinese Crepes
Chinese crepes, also known as jianbing, originate from the villages of Northern China. Believed to have first been made over 2,000 years ago during the Three Kingdoms period, the Chinese crepe was created when trying to feed an army that apparently lost all their woks. Without their woks, the army had to find an alternative way to prepare food. The jianbing was initially created using a flour and water dough mixture, which was spread over a shield. This shied was then held over a fire, which allowed the flour and water dough mixture to bake, creating the crepes that would become known as jianbing. These simple but flavorful crepes provided sustenance to the soldiers while they were in battle.
