Beggar’s Purse is the name for an appetizer made popular by Barry and Susan Wine at their New York restaurant, the Quilted Giraffe. A beggar’s purse consists of a mini crêpe topped by a teaspoon of the finest caviar and then a dab of crème fraiche. The edges of the crêpe are pulled up in pleats around the filling and securely tied with a chive. The ruffle at the top makes this edible package look like a miniature purse. Beggar’s purses are served at room temperature.

In  my version presented here, is the Thai version, called a “Tang Tong” which is essentially a crab ragoon appetizer wrapped up in a green won ton wrapper and tied with a chive.
