Breton galettes with goat merguez and pepper cream

Breton galettes with goat merguez and pepper cream

March 7th, 2020 | main dishes

Fine food from France! In Brittany, the thin pancakes made from nutty buckwheat flour are often served with savory fillings, such as a spicy Merguez sausage. Raisins, mint and parsley together with the creamy-fruity pepper sauce balance the spiciness of the merguez. Vive la France!

Breton galettes with goat merguez and pepper cream

The dough for the buckwheat pancakes should rest for at least an hour, or overnight. In any case, buckwheat flour is irreplaceable! In Brittany, savory pancakes are always made from buckwheat flour. If you use wheat flour, you have crêpes that are always filled sweetly.

I buy the goat Merguez at the goat farm in Bachenbruch. Catherine André has been living there since 1986 and she produces wonderful goat cheese. Their goat cheese is even served in the best restaurants of Hamburg and is said to be the best in Germany. I have known her since the 80s and I get our goat meat from her every year. The Merguez that her husband Daniel makes is simply phenomenal! You can buy Catherine’s goat cheese, goat meat, sausage and even goat skins at the country market in Ihlienworth.

Asian salad freestyle – today they call it “Asia Bowl”

Asian salad freestyle – why “freestyle”? We’ve had a wonderful recipe for Asian salad for ages, which we vary and change over and over again – today, it’s modern to use the English word ‘bowl’ in Germany. There are some components that have to be, such as rice noodles, fish sauce, soy sauce, rice vinegar – and many components that can, such as vegetables, mushrooms, cilantro, nuts and so on… Every time a surprise, what the fridge contains… Take heart and try out!
