This is a Breton cake par excellence. It is often said that the recipe is simple: flour, sugar (lots of sugar) and butter (lots and lots of butter). But the flavour is unique and that’s what makes it!
Breton palet butter biscuits
The Breton Palet is the biscuit that takes you back to your childhood! Dry and crunchy! To be eaten on its own or used as a base for tarts or cheesecake!
The Penerf oyster is one of the six crus of southern Brittany along with “Aven Belon”, “Etel Ria”, the “Quiberon”, the “Gulf of Morbihan” and the “Croisicaise”. Essential for a gourmet seafood platter.
Inland, Breton landscapes are shaped by orchards. With plenty of sunshine and little rain, the apples harvested are exceptionally rich in sugar which is what makes it possible to produce such outstanding cider.
This honey-based liqueur is to be enjoyed with seafood, game, pancakes or as an after-dinner drink. Careful not to empty the bottle!
At the end of your holiday in Morbihan in southern Brittany, don’t forget to leave with a small souvenir of Breton gastronomy.
