“Bravo les Lapinous”! Today is International Rabbit Day
International Rabbit Day. One had to think of it!
Held on the fourth Saturday or Sunday of September, annual celebration of the long-eared, short-tailed mammal, not just in the name of the millions of white bunnies kept as pets across the Western world, but aims to promote a serious message about animal welfare.
On International Rabbit Day we all are encouraged to consider, not only the companionship offered by our favourite hutch-dwellers, but the various ways in which rabbits are harmed by medical and cosmetic testing, hunting, fur farming and, of course, casseroling. Indeed, there is a serious side to International Rabbit Day but you may not be surprised to learn that events are somewhat sporadic, so let your bunny out of its hutch and give it an extra carrot or two … and ‘better give a try to Scarce vintage collection of Brown Rabbits white Bunnies Faience Tureens by Michel Caugant made in Portugal to Bunny Faience Tureens … 🙂 Coming soon!

Part 1 : HISTORY Breton Galettes Duchess Anne de Bretagne.
Crêpe is derived from the Latin crispus meaning “curled”. Crêpes originated from Brittany, West region of France. Crêpes were originally called Galettes, meaning flat cakes.
Around the 12th century, buckwheat ; Sarrasin was introduced in Brittany and came from Asia via the Crusaders during the 12th century. Buckwheat thrived on the desolate and rocky Breton moors and is called “sarrasin” or “blé noir” (black wheat) due to the dark specs that are often found in it. It is high in fiber and is an excellent plant source of easily digestive protein and contains all eight essential amino acids. Another benefit is that it is gluten free.
Breton galettes were invented by a particular “Chef Cook”, in the person of The Duchess Anne de Bretagne since early 16th century. As she knew of the fast and natural growth about this Cereal called Sarrasin ; also known as “ the Plant of 100 days growth” , she decided to sow the precious seeds across the Duchy of Brittany. That is the reason why, from that time, the “galette au blé noir” was born and became a Breton speciality.
