After a somewhat long drive back from Austria, our final stop before arriving at the Gite, was a small Creperie in Niort for gluten free pancakes.
Made with buckwheat flour, they are a great vehicle to deliver a variety of delicious fillings, mostly savory though. No matter where we order a Galette sucre, you get a look and comments such as, "But they are salty", never the less, even with Nutella they are a perfect gluten free treat here in France.
My order was a more inventive filling compared to the standard ones ordered by the girls. Celery puree, Apple compote and Black Pudding sausage. Excellent really. So. For all you travellers that are planning to visit France, look for Crepes made with Farina Sarrasin, or Ble noir.
