Queen of the galette

One of our favorite French traditions (and one that we've celebrated consistently over the years) is the Galette des Rois. Most French families fête the coming of the three kings at the Epiphany, ~January 6. The traditional cake of pastry and an almond paste contains a figurine or a fève. The youngest child at the celebration hides under the table and directs who gets which part by calling out names as the cake is served. Romy was a star this year and made her sister Colette the queen.
