Corsair cuisine in the Bay of Cancale
A journey to flavours from faraway places, with Jérôme and Emmanuel
Jérôme is a food-loving sailor and Emmanuel an ocean-going chef working the spice routes. So it's no wonder that this meeting of minds led to a great idea: to combine gastronomy and traditional sailing aboard the Ausquémé . What better way to spend the lazy days of summer than to sail the enchanting seas of Cancale Bay, and sample the gourmet treasures of buccaneering days ?
This is a true summit – albeit on the waves – between the world of ‘corsair’ chef Olivier Roellinger, Brittany’s maritime history, and the traditional foods of Cancale bay.
The pancake challenge: who can make the best Breton crêpe!
If you want a truly 100% Breton crêpe, then this is the place – to make your own!
In Saint-Quay-Portrieux, Géraldine will be delighted to give you a little lesson in crêpe-making , so you can try using the traditional billig and bring out the expert crêpier you always knew you were.
So what’s a billig then? It’s a big round cast iron griddle for cooking crêpes! The batter is spread over the billig with a rozell,which is a kind of little wooden rake. The weight of this ‘frying-pan’ means tossing the crêpes is totally out of the question so it’s a very special skill that Géraldine is going to try and teach you.
