Behind the French Menu
These British Celts through their various immigrations went on to found Bretagne, Brittany; so if you want really good British food go to Brittany!
The original Celtic immigrants were Druids and needed chouchen for their ceremonies. I can imagine that they also enjoyed a glass or two of their holy chouchen to brighten their evenings at the end of a long winter's day.
Today, on your French menu in Brittany Chouchen may also be brightening up the sauce:
I think this shop offers enough brands and varieties of Chouchen? I can count over 50.
As you drive around Bretagne you will see many place names and business names that include the words Amor, Amorica, Armorique and similar; this is all part of Bretagne's history. Amor was the ancient name for Bretagne, before Druids came, then came the Romans, under Julius Caesar, and he changed that name to Amorica. The largest national park in Bretagne is called the Parc Naturel Régional d'Armorique, the natural regional Park of Armorique.Amorica has nothing to do with America; America's two continents are named after Amerigo Vespucci (1454 – February 22, 1512) the Italian explorer who was the first to show that the two American continents were not part of Columbus’s India. He never made it to North America but his name is still honored on both continents.
