Villedieu Les Poêles, a little town in Normandy, and Crepes

Carole's Chatter: Villedieu Les Poêles, a little town in Normandy, and Crepes


We have been to the little Norman town of Villedieu Les Poêles several times.  Its name is in reference to its specialty which is copper pans.  Other than that it is a pretty typical town.

We have been to 2 different creperies in the town.  One which is in the centre of town and is very busy and one up a side street which is tiny and quiet.

The first galette (savoury crepe) was at La Cuisine de Leonie on the Place des Chevaliers de Malte.  I ordered stupidly and ended up with a galette with 2 sausages stuck on top – no sauce –  I had no idea until we were back home that this in fact is a delicacy and you are supposed to roll the sausages up in the galette.  Still some sauce would have been nice.  This pic gives you an idea of what it was like although the galette I got didn't have the onions.

A few days later we went to the little crêperie on the way to St Lo (Au Relais du Cuivre, rue du General Huard).

The crepes were as good as we remembered - just 4/5 tables - i had the Parmentiere - which had lardons potatoes and cream and my better half had the Parisienne (with ham and mushroom).  The meals were tasty and filling – and cheaper too.
