The Pancake Boat

May 11, 2011 at 9:31 am 1 comment

I mentioned the other day that vendors have constantly been trying to sell us stuff, even when we were on the gulet yachts off the southern Turkish coast. One boat that made our mouths water a bit was the pancake boat.

As you can see in the photo above, it’s a two-person operation: The man rows the boat while the woman cooks the pancakes.

They’re actually more like crepes than pancakes, and they come in a variety of flavors, including versions with Nutella, bananas, lemon and sugar, and so on. We did not buy any, alas—we had just eaten breakfast on board the gulet and didn’t want to offend the crew (who make a great breakfast). But I sure was tempted.

You can see in the photo at left that the woman has a grill on board—and even a sink.
