Ciaffagnoni with Chamomile Lemon Jelly and Pecorino Cheese

Ciaffagnoni - Italian Crepes with Chamomile Lemon Jelly and Pecorino Cheese This is an easy crepe recipe, with an even easier to make batter. What makes the dish, though, is the Pecorino and Chamomile Lemon Jelly. The Chamomile Lemon Jelly took sometime to perfect, but after trial and error I feel I got it right. Steeping the Chamomile tea for 24 hours seem to do the trick. Using fresh lemon juice and the zest of the lemon added that extra depth in flavor. The addition of fresh rosemary really gave the dish some dimension. Making crepes takes time and patience,
