Flavours from the land and sea

In Brittany, the blue of the sea is reflected on your plate! Lobsters, scallops, oysters, mussels, sardines… Packed with minerals, Breton fish and seafood dishes combine the flavours of the sea with numerous health benefits and can be enjoyed all year round. To be savoured in a outdoor tavern overlooking the sea or while watching the boats arrive in the harbour! On the land side, local produce is sure to delight all food lovers, from the famous kig ha farz, pot-au-feu with a sauce from northern Finistère, to the andouilles de Guéméné… And vegetarians will love the artichoke or the juicy strawberries from Plougastel.

Breton specialities

Crêpes, galettes, kouign-amann, caramel au beurre salé… It’s impossible to spend a holiday in Brittany without sampling these iconic delicacies! In a crêperie by the sea, on the go at the market or in the morning for breakfast, there are plenty of opportunities to give in to the call of the crêpe! Made with buckwheat, the “crêpe complète” is a staple dish that varies according to the skills and inclinations of the crêpier. Some of these artisans are even happy to share their secrets in cooking classes. And for an even tastier snack, Kouign-amann is a must! Can you guess the recipe for Douarnenez’s most famous snack? Butter, butter and more butter!
