B.A .ba of the chief

Ribot milk, or fermented milk, is not only the sour drink served with the pancakes of the pancake house, it is also a culinary staple.

Originally, it is the liquid that flows from the churn (ribotte in Breton) when the butter is beaten. You can find them in the supermarket, next to fresh milk. It tastes like plain drinking yoghurt, more liquid and creamier.

It has the velvety texture of cream, the acidity of yoghurt… and above all, lightness! It emulsifies, lightens and gives a tangy punch. In Indian cuisine, it replaces yoghurt with panache.
