Zuerst gibt es Galette

Have you ever tried Galette? In case you haven’t, these are hearty crepes. They are traditionally made from buckwheat flour, water and salt. (Nowadays the dough is sometimes varied, e.g. a little wheat flour or milk are added. I’ll mention that if you’re allergic, so you know you’d better ask about the ingredients. I have difficulties with milk and usually tolerate the Galette very well.)

La Galette de Marie

My todays culinary enthusiasm can be found in Cannes, namely:  9 Rue Bivouac Napoléon, 06400 Cannes.



We frequently and gladly come here. The food is digestible, tastes good and you sit in a small side street, which I like because of the nice owner-managed shops. In summer as in winter, La Galette de Marie is a nice reason for us to go to Cannes. By the way, one traditionally drinks cider with it, the national drink of Brittany. The sparkling apple wine is served here in a kind of teacup, you should definitely try it.

But first a few impressions, right?



Doesn’t that look excellent? And now watch out, your mouth will start watering! The man had – as every time actually – a Super Royale (minced meat, cheese, egg, onions), I like to take the Super Chevrette (goat cheese, nuts, tomatoes, honey) or Popeye (egg, spinach, goat cheese and raw ham). For dessert, we always have a crêpe and mostly we choose Mars (homemade chocolate and caramel sauce). With a Mega Mars you get a scoop of vanilla ice cream and cream. Bounty is also great: homemade chocolate sauce and coconut flakes. Or order a Bounty with a scoop of coconut ice cream – a true revelation! Anyway, you can easily change every dish as you desire. Eating galette is actually a great thing for almost every diet. When having a lactose intolerance, you can order any galette without cheese, with gluten intolerance you are right anyway because of the buckwheat flour, vegetarians will find a large selection and even vegans can still choose between ratatouille and mushrooms, tomatoes, spinach or a salad.

conclusion:

Give it a shot! And come hungry so you won’t miss the dessert.
