A quick trip to France to stock up on supplies for the Deli Truck and of course couldn’t go back without a touch of regional, old school, french cooking – First off the famous Galette.
French comfort food in a cheap cheerful cafe in the little village of Ernee. Galette is the snack food of Btittany. It’s a buckwheat pancake with fillings. This one stuffed with potatoes, onions, garlic and two types of ham all finished off with a light sauté in cream. Then a huge slab of raclette (a melty mountain cheese) is melted on top. Perfect with a carafe of chateau plonk of the red variety. Cost with wine 8 quid.
Another great dish from a small restaurant – this time a place I have been before called La Table Normande- the entree is a classic – a slice of Tatin d’andouille de vire a la Normande. This is a sausage made from the lower intestine of a pig, so a bit poopy, but in a good way. Sitting on a bed of caramelised apples.
