-----> Les Galettes
The story goes that Galettes appeared around 7 000 B.C. They were made from water and various flour. The concept is found in every world civilization.
During the 12th century, the Crusaders brought buckwheat from Asia Minor and it began to be cultivated in Brittany.
As early as the 14th century, the Bretons (habitants of Brittany) developed this gastronomic tradition by adding different fillings to the galette. The Crèpe, made from milk and enriched flour, goes back to the Roman times where they were prepared for the Lupercales, celebrations which honored the return of Spring and the promess of future harvest.
Today, Crèpes and Galettes are still festive meals. The French celebrate the Chandeleur every February 2.
They hold a coin in one hand while tossing the Crèpe and making a wish, in hopes of a year filled with riches.
Nowadays there are more and more variations of Crèpes and Galettes accompanied by diverse fillings.
They stand as a reknown gastronomic specialty.
