Crespeou - Provencal omelet

A little jump in Provence for a traditional recipe, Crespeou.

Crespeou is a cake of omelets of herbs and vegetables, stacked in superimposed layers, which can be eaten cold, with or without a tomato coulis.

This recipe seems to be native to Avignon and Haut-Vaucluse (Piolenc, Orange), it consists of the layering of omelettes of different compositions and colors, to each cook their garnish of vegetables and herbs, flavors and colors to compose a beautiful cake, like pancakes, hence the name: lou crespeou.
