Fruits de mer Brittany cuisineWith mile after mile of coastline, it's not surprising that Brittany specialises in seafood.

In the North of the region, Roscoff is well known for it's succulent lobster, and to the East, Cancale is famous for Oysters.

Galettes and crepes are another speciality of Brittany, both are a form of large pancake, galettes usually have a savoury filling and crepes have a sweet filling. The locals love to wash them down with locally brewed cider (Brittany is a large producer of cider, in the surrounding countryside you can see orchard after orchard of apples).
