What is buckwheat?
Buckwheat (known in French as sarrasin or blé noir) is a flowering plant native to north-eastern Asia. Its cultivation was relaunched in Brittany towards the end of the 1980s. Since 2010, buckwheat flour has had its own PGI (Protected Geographical Indication).
Where can I find it?
Feel free to visit one of the many mills throughout Brittany that offer guided tours, such as the Moulin de Bertaud in Bain-de-Bretagne or the Moulin de La Falaise in Batz-sur-Mer.
