French Cakes & Pastries
Moules Marinieres et Cidre!

A stay at Brittany Cottages means a vast array of delicious French food is practically on your doorstep.  The award winning Creperie Kervengard is withing walking distance and the crepes are truly amazing!  They also run crepe workshops showing you how to make the perfect crepe!

The traditional drink with your galettes or crepes is Breton apple cider, a slightly effervescent drink with a low alcohol content. It is traditionally served in a crockery bollée, or cup, with larger quantities sold by the pitcher.

With its long coastline, Brittany is also a popular choice for great seafood. Enjoy a lunch or dinner of moules frites (mussels served with French fries/chips) or indulge in delicious fresh oysters.  Of course, this being France, you'll also find excellent wines in Brittany. Perhaps best known is Muscadet, a white wine that goes well with seafood.

Of course, a visit to France wouldn't be complete without sampling authentic cakes and pastries.  As well as the popular croissants and fresh bread from a nearby Boulangerie/Patisserie, it's worth trying the local speciality of Kouign Amann (butter cake).  This mouth-watering, rich Brittany dessert will satisfy every lover of sweet pastries! With its multiple layers of dough, the traditional Kouign Amann has been an indispensable dish for family meals and popular gatherings in Bretagne for generations..
