 The History of Crêpes and Galettes 
 
Crêpes are popular not only throughout France, but elsewhere in Europe, where the pancakes                    go by other names and adaptations, including Italian crespelle, Hungarian palacsintas, Jewish blintzes, Scandinavian plattars, Russian blini, and Greek kreps, but it was in France's Brittany   region where the tools and techniques were created and perfected, elevating the crepe to an art form.
 
There are two kinds of crêpes from Brittany that you will find here at FONTAINE restaurant: ble noir are savory crêpes made with buckwheat flour (100% Gluten free) and froment are sweet crêpes made with wheat flour. 
 
Today’s savvy diner is aware that crêpes and galettes are no longer just for dessert. One will now find “savory”   crêpes created and cooked in a host of new ways!
 
One thing, however, has not changed throughout their long history. Crêpes have always been and continue to be enjoyed for their simplicity and wholesomeness.
