A very quick post here as we're off to eat curry with the Quiet American.
Tinned sardines, a part of the cultural landscape of Brittany. The canning plants often long established, in quite remote places on the coast, even on islands, their names punning or picturesque: Connétable, la Belle Iloise, Phare d'Eckmühl... The tins themselves I think are often minor works of art, and delightfully old fashioned. This brand, la Douarneniste I've not come across before, but I scanned it because I thought the Breton lady was lovely, not least because she's holding a tin of sardines with her very own image on them, which presumably, if one could go small enough, would be holding another tin of sardines with her picture on, and so ad infinitum, an old device which has always intrigued.
And they taste rather good too.
