It wasn’t long after we landed in London that I came across a stall selling Nutella crepes streetside on Portobello Road. The last time I had indulged in these was in the markets of Paris almost 10 years ago, and I couldn’t resist having one right away. My daughter encouraged me to try one with sliced banana – amazing, who knew? Growing up in an Italian home, this spread was a staple of my childhood. I remember secretly sharing sandwiches with my dog, who didn’t seem to mind that chocolate is incredibly toxic to dogs. Who would have thought that Nutella would lend itself to becoming a key ingredient in some of the great street food of Europe’s most famous capitals: crepes in London and Paris, nutella ice cream in Rome. Might be time to dust off my friend Nadia’s nutella cake recipe to ease the withdrawal!
