France: Breakfast in Antibes

We have just been to Antibes and since breakfast at the hotel was not particularly exciting, we chose to look for other options. We found a cozy eatery in the old town called Les filles des micocoulier. They served both regular English breakfast and French breakfast, but we thought it was exciting to try something new, so the choice fell on galettes.

It is a kind of pancake, completely gluten-free and with coarse flour, so we chose to believe that it is a healthier alternative. We could choose between several types of filling and whether we wanted it served flat or rolled up. We chose one of each type and were not disappointed. The flat is filled with four different cheeses and the rolled one with ham and cheese. It was also served with a sour cream, added finely chopped chives.

It was a delicious, filling meal and if you are in Antibes, I can really recommend this place. We also stopped by two days later and were reasonably impressed when the waitress remembered exactly what we had eaten and drank two days earlier.

If you want to make galette yourself, these are made from buckwheat:

Til 4 patties:

125 g buckwheat flour

3 dl water

1 egg

1 teaspoon of salt

2 tablespoons neutral oil

Mix flour and salt in a bowl. Make a pit in the center and pour in eggs and water. Stir from the center outwards, until you have a smooth batter, without lumps. Add the oil, making sure that the mixture is homogeneous. If it seems too thick, you can add a little water. Let the batter rest in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour.

Heat a large Teflon pan over medium heat. Brush the pan with butter and fry the pancakes in the usual way. Place in the desired filling and fold as shown in the picture, before placing them on plates.
