Galettes

I posted a photo of the interior of Café Breton last month because I liked the mural on the wall, and Layrayski of Butuan City, Philippines and Boise Diva of Boise, Idaho, USA both asked where the galette and crêpe were. I didn't have any photos of the food then, so when we had another opportunity to eat at Café Breton, I made sure to take photos of our galettes (I am so glad I have an indulgent husband—thanks, sweetie! I know you were already starving waiting for me). The one at the back is the Galette Bretonne: spinach, shrimps sautéed with crab meat, fresh cream and Gruyère cheese. The one in the foreground is the Galette Paysanne: whole hungarian sausage, onions, egg, asparagus and cheese sauce. Both on buckwheat galettes, and both, yummmmmy! Special thanks to Melanie of Châteaubriant, France for reminding me about the buckwheat. It is also through her comments that I am learning what kind of accents to put on the vowels of French words.

That photo is great! The food looks absolutely scrumptious. You might make me sophisticated yet, Hilda. Thanks for the post! (And you made the growling in my stomach even louder)

Boise Diva said...

Thanks for sharing the pictures of the food, and a good excsue for going back! I'll take the shrimps one, please.

Oh my! I can't make up my mind! The asparagus with cheese sauce sounds and looks like a winner.

des galettes bretones, cela donne envie. j'espère qu'il y avait du cidre.

Breton galletes are the best of inexpensive france food. I taste them every time that I'm in Britanny, fantastic whit a bottle of frozen Cidre.
Thanks for your comment in my blog. I appreciate.

Merci de ton petit mot à mon sujet. Je suis contente que mes explications t'aient plu ! Si tu viens vers Châteaubriant je t'amènerai manger des galettes et des crêpes (les crêpes flambées au Grand-Marnier : c'est un régal) !

Galettes take other forms in France. Pardon the look of "Louis's" recipe blog - at the moment it is getting a facelift: Galette des rois
