Breton Galettes Duchess Anne de Bretagne

Bretonne making delicious galettes

Part 1 : HISTORY

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.
