The Breton gastronomy, to be tasted without moderation

Breton cakes, kouign-amann, oysters and many others … who has never dreamed of visiting Brittany to taste one of its specialties? We make a small tour of the gastronomic assets of the region.

Breton pancake

The Breton pancake: the must-have

Made from buckwheat flour, the Breton galette can be eaten in any season, at any time and for any occasion. Filled with meat, fish, vegetables, or the complete “ham, cheese, egg”, the Breton cake adapts to the taste and desires of everyone! Accompanied by a bowl of cider, share a friendly moment with your friends and family. To finish the meal, of course, a sweet pancake (made of wheat) plain or with salted butter caramel, will allow you to end the evening on a greedy note. As for the restaurant/crêperie, one would not know what to choose. The best thing to do is to test it yourself. Find a list (not exhaustive) of the best creperies in Côtes d’Armor :

On the sea side, oysters from Brittany

More or less iodized, the oysters of Brittany are cultivated from Paimpol to Cancale, through Morlaix, Quiberon or the Gulf of Morbihan. The Côtes d’Armor is one of the largest oyster farming areas in France. While staying at our campsite La Crique, don’t miss the opportunity to taste them. Milky or not, sterile or not, you can eat oysters all year round in Brittany, for the greatest pleasure of all! The most famous of all is the Cancale oyster, which will be added to UNESCO’s Cultural and Intangible Heritage in 2019. On the seawall, facing the sea, that’s how it’s enjoyed! You can also find these oysters on the numerous local markets of Saint-Cast and its surroundings.

Breton speciality

On the ground side, pastries for snacking!

  • The Breton star is of course the Kouign-Amann. Created in Douarnenez in the 1860’s, this famous cake made of (mainly) butter and sugar in a bread dough, has been delighting the taste buds for generations.
  • Another symbol: the Far Breton. Baked in the oven, its recipe could not be more classic (flour, eggs, whole milk and, of course, butter and sugar) makes it an undeniable success!
  • The Breton cake: this small shortbread with salted butter was, formerly, the favorite delicacy of the sailors. Known to keep for weeks, it was the perfect travel cake!
  • The Breton puck: the essential of your snack. Small and light, it will accompany your coffee or tea with brio. Very fine, it owes its name to the famous traditional Breton game thanks to its shape and its aspect.
