Krampouezhenn gwinizh du is Breton for a savoury buckwheat crêpes (gallette in French) typically made with ham, egg and fresh cheese, served with hard cider.
The Bretons were poor, and the soil was poor. The Buckwheat plant (a seed, not a wheat) does well in the region. Since wheat was for the rich, buckwheat was the grain of the poor, and the earliest crêpes were entirely of buckwheat. Today most buckwheat crêes have a mixture of wheat and buckwheat, although gluten-free crêpes are made with only buckwheat.
The Breton language, like many other Gaelic languages almost disappeared from Brittany. There is a growing interest in the language. Some aspects of Brittany are famous, such as the beaches at Normandy, and the great hero Asterix. Asterix hails from a small town in Amorica, the earlier name for Brittany. He is called Asterix the Gaul because the Romans called that area Gaul, even though his village was never conquered by “those crazy romans.”
