Gastronomy

The region of Brittany is not known for its gatronomic tradition. For instance, one does not find very many desserts using spples because of the emphasis on the cider production.

The Bretons are simole, country folk who do not place much importance on refined cooking but that isn´t to say that their cuisine is mediocre.

Until the turn of this century, meat was rare except for cured pork and goose, on the other hand, salted butter is quite common.


The Regional Products

Typical dishes are rye bread, buckwheat crêpes,blood sausages, boiled salt pork and sardines.

The sea shellfish (clams, bay sallops, oysters, sea urchins and shrimp) and crustaceans (lobster, crabs, rock lobster), salt and freshwater fish.

Livestock pork, cattle, poultry and some salt-marsh grazed lamb.

Farming strawberries from Plougastel and Saint Malo, couliflower, artichokes, leeks, onions, carrots, cabbage and beets.

Traditional desserts lacy crêpes, far breton, Kouing Aman, Brittany cake.
