The galette des rois is the indisputable mascot of the month of January in France, flocking every school, workplace, pastry shop window, and get-together.  Galette de quoi?  Two buttery layers of puff pastry sandwich a rich almond cream and a tiny toy, determining the king or queen for the day.  And I am much too competitive to eat just one losing slice…

    Lucky you! I’ve never won anything but a belly ache.

    Bonne journee!
