Souvenir #2- Roudor Biscuits

"Best souvenir was roudor biscuits from St. Michel Biscuiterie…"
Bill H., CA

At the end of the XIXth Century, a French Chef named Joseph Grellier, living in a small village of Brittany called Saint-Michel-Chef-Chef, became famous for his round and golden Galettes. In 1905, he started selling them to Parisian Ladies who were visiting Brittany, and it became a huge success. In 1919, the company "Biscuiterie St Michel" was born!
One of their most famous treats is this thick butter cookie called Palet Breton or "Roudor" ("Golden Wheel"), both crunchy and melt-in-your-mouth... A unique French treat!
