What does Breton mean? ‘Un Breton’ is a person native to Brittany, a north-western province of France. Brittany was originally an independent kingdom before uniting with France, and is the province historically regarded as the birthplace of the crêpe.
Since the 13th century, buckwheat thrived in the climate of Brittany, bringing a plentiful harvest that quickly ensured crêpes would become a favourite amongst provincial farmers. From humble beginnings, the crêpe evolved, making it not only a family favourite meal, but a gourmet cuisine regarded the world over.
The batter recipe you are about to try has been in their family for over four generations. They have created ‘Bistro Breton’ to share our love of crêpes with you and invite you to discover our traditional dishes and their love for French cuisine.
At ‘Bistro Breton’, the crêpes and dishes they serve are made to order and prepared using fresh ingredients. They want you to experience the real taste of Breton’s crêpes and to do so they have imported their buckwheat flour directly from their family’s producer as well as their crêpes makers.
Traditionally, you would eat a savoury crêpe made of buckwheat flour (which is naturally gluten free) for main, followed by a sweet crêpe (made of wheat flour) for dessert, all accompanied by a bolée of cider or a glass of wine.
