Met with two girlfriends at Cafe Breton one rainy Wednesday night. We were supposed to meet at 7:30 pm but because of the slow-moving traffic, we were all late and finally got together around 10 o'clock. I was munching cookies along the way and I wasn't hungry anymore when I arrived at The Podium. But one look at the menu, and I couldn't resist the Hungarian sausage--so I ordered Galette Paysanne.
Galette or Breton galette is a French crepe made from buckwheat flour, served with sweet filling. Mine was garnished with egg, onions, asparagus and mushrooms, topped with cheese sauce. Paysanne is also a French term for root vegetables cut into very thin slices.
