Bertrand Larcher, Le Fooding Guide’s 2011 man of the hour award
In his crêperie on the Port de Cancale (blonde wood from floor to ceiling), Bertrand Larcher feeds his krampouz with the local crème de la crème: organic Breton buckwheat, Bordier butter, Label Rouge salmon, free-range eggs… The result? Outstanding galettes, including: Breizh Rolls with artichokes, wakame, scrambled eggs and Comté, rolled up like maki; the deliciously briny Cancalaise galette made with artisanal smoked herring, herring roe, potatoes and farm-fresh crème fraîche; or the earthier Bretonne combining pan-fried mushrooms, Comté, a fried egg, smoked bacon, crème fraîche and piment d’Espelette. Not to mention the delicious sweet crepes with Valrhona 70% dark chocolate, for all those with a sweet tooth. // G.LeP.
FEELING THIRSTY? There are twenty-some artisanal hard ciders to choose from: Argelette “sydre” from Eric Borelet (€28 a bottle), natural cider from Cyril Zangs (€22)… Along with Breton Lancelot beer (€5.80 for 330 ml) or a taut Amphibolite Muscadet from Jo Landron (€28 a bottle).
PRICE: Galettes €8.80 to €16.80.
