The historical point

Arrived in Brittany in the 13th century following the crusades in Asia, buckwheat inspired the gastronomy of northern France for the preparation of pancakes. They are traditionally prepared there in butter, in a pan to taste them salted!

The + nutrition?

Gluten-free buckwheat flour is rich in vegetable proteins and fibers.

The recipe

Mix 250g of buckwheat flour (with an optional egg yolk) and 500ml of water. Separately, beat the egg whites with salt, pepper and a spoonful of flour before adding to the first preparation and let stand for 1 hour. Cook! To garnish as you wish, why not with white ham and a touch of Mushroom Condiment with Black Summer Truffle or with Organic Pork Rillettes with Black Pepper for a delicious nod to Breton Sausage-Galettes?

2. the taloa

The historical point

Popularized among the Mayas, corn flour arrived with migrations in the Basque country in the 16th century where it quickly became the basis of farm bread. “Talo”, or “Taloa” in Basque (plural “Taloak”), is a thick pancake that can be eaten on the go, sweet or savory.

The + nutrition?

Corn flour is gluten free and rich in antioxidants!

The recipe

For 4 taloak, pour 1 glass of flour (about 100g) in the same volume of boiling water then mix for 5 minutes with a wooden spoon.
Let cool, flower the work surface then roll out the dough in 4 circles 4cm thick. Then grill them for three minutes in a very hot pan or plancha, topped with the classic belly cheese duo, or for a veggie version, our Organic Fine Pepper Cream and our Grilled Eggplant Antipasti in Olive Oil Extra Virgin.
