Galette des Rois.

Annual fête in honor of the kings...the first year Colette took the most important role in the festivity. She hid under the table and called out the names of guests one by one as each piece of the cake was distributed accordingly. That part of the ritual makes it truly magical to find the fève is hiding out in your piece of the galette. The fève happened to be in the original queen's piece. It was a little figurine of an éclair, but Colette thought it was a hot dog...very French of her.
