Brunch galettes (savoury crepes)

Galette is the French word for savoury pancake or crepe made with potato or buckwheat flour. Those that I’ve had so far in France and French restaurants are usually made from buckwheat flour. Here’s the really simple recipe for the pancake. After that, you’re free to put toppings of your choice.

One of the things I’ve cut down on eating is bread—warm, soft, fresh bread. But breakfast without a bit of bread, butter and jam can sometimes feel incomplete, and that’s where pancakes come in. Pancakes aren’t mere replacements for bread, they occupy a special place in the hierarchy of best breakfast foods. When you’re trying to increase your protein intake to complement your workout routine, packing a plateful of pancakes with protein-rich ingredients is the perfect way to do so.

While the concept of brunch can apparently “be partly traced back to the upper-class British tradition of hunting luncheons,” it’s the Americans who popularised Sunday brunch, complete with boozy drinks. I’m neither British nor American, but I’ve always enjoyed the idea of having a laid-back morning somewhere between “very early” and “oh no the day is half over” while enjoying a spread of eggs, pancakes, coffee, and juice while musing over life with good friends.
