There are some foods you don’t particularly notice being a child or teen, but then, almost all at once, start to be obsessed with. My next food story is about gorgeous rhubarb, friends!

Just imagine this picture: pancakes or crepes and a few lovely toppings of your choice. What would you choose? Fruit preserves or maybe a handful of fresh berries? Or what about lemon and sugar? Or would you love to opt something simple and hearty like butter and honey? Or let’s have “dolce vita” and top them with dulce de leche – that would be so dulcet!:) Would you pick a common North American combo of bacon and maple syrup finally?
