Food and Drink in Brittany
Freshly caught lobster can be enjoyed at a restaurant or bought straight from the harbour to be taken home and cooked.
Catch of the day - freshly caught Brittany langoustines straight from the boat
Head down to the harbour to watch the fishing boats come. The late afternoon fish market down at the docks is an experience not to be missed!
The region’s oyster farms provide a steady supply of exquisite wares that ask for no more than a squirt of lemon and a glass of crisp Muscadet for a meal fit for a king.
Pancakes are another local speciality – the savoury galette is made with gluten-free buckwheat flour and can be filled with anything from basic cheese and ham right through to elaborate ingredients that would be a meal in itself, while the sweet crêpe is delicious with just butter or jam or as a gourmet version with stewed apples smothered in delicious salted caramel sauce. It’s a flexible, affordable and delicious meal that even picky eaters will enjoy. A bolée of locally-produced cider served in a wide ceramic mug is the ideal pairing.
And for something a little more special, the region counts no less than 36 Michelin-starred restaurants.
