This is a popular French pastry filled with almond cream that celebrates the holiday of Epiphany on the 6th of January, the visitation of the Magi to the baby Jesus.
This is a very popular tradition all over France among friends, work colleagues, family and at school. A “fève” – it used to be a bean, now a small figurine – is hidden in the galette before baking. The lucky person who gets the “fève” is crowned king or Queen and chooses his/her King or Queen among the other guests and gets to wear a crown.
Watch for that fève when you bite into it.
