What is that Galette des rois about?!
It is true, 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!
One month is little time to plan all the galettes you want to devour!
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 all our groups 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?
These galettes are made of puff pastry and almond cream: when simple flavours and textures come together to create an amazing dessert!
Happy New Year everyone!
