"The combination of rose and strawberries is one of those revelatory moments in the kitchen when you feel you've come across something truly special," says Alvarez. "Combine that with nutty, crisp buckwheat crêpes and you have a winner that will both satisfy and surprise. The apples are there to add a pink colour, pectin from the skins and seeds and a slight tartness." Start this recipe a day ahead to make the jam.
Note Organic rose petals suitable are best sourced from local gardens. Most roses sold commercially are sprayed with insecticide.
