Ljubljana Pancakes with Cottage Cheese and Tarragon

Creation of this dish has probably been aided by abundance of high quality cottage cheese available at the Ljubljana Food Market. Usually prepared during the fresh tarragon season,
it was often accompanied with kidney bean soup, or served as a main course on Fridays.
