For 2017, at Manoir de Kerledan, we are offering, a more relaxed and informal supper of 2 courses at 25€ per person which includes an aperitif and coffee or herbal tea.
We have a simple wine selection to complement our food and we will continue to use the fresh fruits and vegetables from our organic potager and locally source other ingredients.
Perhaps, we will have a barbecue on the Kadai firepits in the barn on a summer’s evening along with some local cider or a glass of chilled white wine.
It has always been important to us to serve healthy, fresh, food with an emphasis on locally sourced ingredients and organic too, where possible.
The excellent local goat’s cheeses, honey from the Monts d’Arree and cider from Landeleau, along with trout from Dualt and our breakfast cheese, the Karaez from Yann our neighbouring farmer.
The wonderful flavours and spices of the Mediterranean and Middle East are now available to us all too (the Roellinger spices, Bretagne specialist) and one cannot resist the Ottolenghi style of cooking with huge platters of glistening couscous, salads and saffron infused chicken, to mention just a few. Delicous!
Here in Brittany we are regularly reminded of the link with the spice trade through the town of Lorient (the orient) and the French East India Company. One can visit the fascinating museum at Port Louis on the south coast across the estuary from Lorient.
