Red Velvet Crepes with Strawberry Syrup & Whipped Cream

Filling:
1. In a pan on medium heat, add strawberries and water.
2. Cook for about 10-15 minutes before adding sugar. It will begin to reduce in this time. Then add sugar to taste, allowing to continue cooking until syrup reaches desired thickness (thick enough to coat a spoon). Keep in mind it will get a little bit thicker as it cools down.
3. In a bowl, combine heavy cream with sugar and vanilla to taste.
4. Beat cream until you reach desired thickness.
5. Plate and add filling just off the centre of the crêpe with a little whipped cream, rolling up the crêpe around it. Top with more whipped cream and syrup.
