The galette is, without a doubt, the most famous item in Breton cuisine. These buckwheat crêpes can be eaten in savoury or sweet dishes with thousands of different fillings. They even make an appearance in the local street food: galette saucisse is a sophisticated take on the hot dog. Be sure to enjoy a glass of cider as an accompaniment!
Poulet au cidre
Bretons love their cider - not just drinking it, but also cooking with it. This hearty dish features chicken, onions and apples in a rich, creamy cider sauce. It's not one for dieters, but it's sure to leave you licking the plate.
Britanny cuisine is known for its excellent seafood, and it's almost impossible to choose just one fish dish. Cotriade, a rich fish stew, is an absolute classic. It was traditionally eaten by fishermen and their families. The best cotriade will come packed with many types of fish, so it's full of different flavours.
Fancy some dessert? This prune and custard flan cake is a much-loved local sweet treat. It's a bit like a clafoutis, and is the perfect way to end a Breton meal.
The French love their pastries, and this is the local version! This pastry is packed with sugar and the famous Breton salted butter and has a rich flavour of salted caramel. Kouign-amann is circular and can be bought in different sizes. Get a small one to yourself, or a larger one to share.
