Lait Ribot

Have you ever bought green-top milk in a French supermarket thinking that it was semi-skimmed?

Lait Ribot is either green or gold topped (semi-skimmed is blue) it is a breton speciality fermented milk.  I have had people in the gites tell me that they would not return to the supermarket because the milk is off ! 🙂  If you are not expected a fermented taste, then you would believe that your milk is off – it doesn’t go well with PG Tips!

Traditionally the bretons have their lait ribot in a bowl and drink it with a spoon (like soup) or dunk their galette (buckwheat pancake) into it for their Saturday lunch.
