What is that Galette des rois about?!
We have to admit, French people get really excited about this treat!
But you have to understand: it is REALLY GOOD and you can only have it in January! In France, we try to make the most of it. We get one for the office, one for our friends, one for the family and another one for this other group of friends. You want to eat as many as you can!
The little ceramic token (called fève) that is placed in the cake use to be a real bean or a coin. Nowadays, we get beautiful collections of fève. In French, people who collect them are called "fabophilles" from the Greek 'faba' (fève) and 'philos'(who loves). Will you collect all ours?
Anyways, these galettes are made of puff pastry and almond cream or like in the video
with chef Yann, are made with chocolate in the dough (look at these designs!) and inside as well. It looks amazing being made, so imagine eating it!
Happy New Year to everyone!
