Media Release: Learn how to make pancakes in Brittany


ALL ready for Pancake Day on 8 March? Not if you haven’t had your pancake-making lesson!

Where better to learn how to make wafer thin, moist pancakes than Brittany, where sweet and savoury pancakes are the regional dish?

Learn how to make your own pancakes with all the proper Breton kit: a billig (that’s the big cast iron hotplate to me and you) and a rozell – the extra special tool you use to spread your batter.

A workshop at the Fleur de Blé Noir crêperie in Saint-Quay-Portrieux will have you honing your technique and producing pleasing piles of perfect pancakes, all under the expert eye of Catherine, pancake-maker extraordinaire.

In Brittany, savoury pancakes are known as galettes and sweet ones are called crêpes but it’s not just the fillings that set them apart – the batter for each is different too.

Learn all about age-old recipes and techniques as well as filling ideas.

From sausages to salted caramel, the Breton take on the pancake raises this humble dish to whole new gastronomic heights.

A pancake lesson costs €28 per person; find out more about this Brittany Experience by reading a first-hand account on the Brittany Tourism website.

Brittany Experiences are a hand-picked selection of extra special things to do in Brittany, organised by locals so you get to see Brittany through their eyes.
