Great Bretagne

We were in Bretagne, one of the regions in the Northwest of France this past weekend. And the food here is typical - crépes and galetes - savoury pancakes, filled for main course and sweetened for dessert. Crépes and galetes are very similar to our Indian dosas. However they are made of wheat rather than rice and dal and they aren't made as crispy.

And to drink, there's cidre (cider). We were in a bunch of places in the region, notably Le Mont St Michel and St. Malo. And every corner has a Créperie and virtually every place we tried was fabulous. It's like one of our dosa diners which can serve a 100 varieties of dosa with just the basic ingredient the same.

And it's not just the food. The region is gorgeous and the people helpful. In fact we met a very helpful couple at one of the Créperies but that warrants a different post altogether. And this post is just about the food. There's more to follow from our little weekend getaway.

Lovely photographs. The cider looks great. I love those Bretagnian cups they serve them in. I've tried them in Normandie. I think its a speciality there too. Keep the good work up

Jaya said...

Megha -> Thank you so much. yup, I've been to Normandy as well and tasted it there too. We had the same Brut thing I think at both places they tasted pretty much the same. Please keep coming back to the blog!
