Where can you enjoy Breton Kig ha Farz?

Le Kig ha Farz… Quésaco ? 
C’est l’incontournable « pot-au-feu » ou « couscous » breton ! Originaire du Nord-Finistère,
ce plat emblématique de la Bretagne se déguste en hiver de septembre à avril. 
En français, il signifie littéralement : « viande et fars ». 
Idéal pour les grandes tablées, c’est un repas de fête chaleureux, copieux et typique ! 
Il est composé de « farz » (fars) noir (blé noir) et/ou blanc (farine de froment) associés à un assortiment de légumes du jardin, de bouillon et de viande de porc. 
Il est traditionnellement accompagné d’une généreuse sauce au beurre et aux oignons nommée « Lipig »
En bref, c’est un vrai plat complet qui réchauffe lors des froides journées d’hiver !

A unique recipe?

It is rumored that there are as many recipes as there are chapels in Brittany, which shows the possibilities!
Sometimes accompanied by beef, bacon or shank or even three. It can also be found with a second, sweeter far that is cut and browned in a pan.
For vegetables, you can also choose to add leeks and turnips or any other vegetable according to your desires.
There is only one constant: like all good dishes, it is a simmered dish that cooks gently for at least 3 hours!
