January 6th, Day of Epiphany, but also in France, time to get your Galette des Rois. It's a golden pastry cake filled with an almond cream filling called frangipane, but what's original about it is that the baker put a small china called la fève. Back in the day, a dry fava bean was used instead of a figurine. The fève is baked into the cake, and the person who finds it in his slice becomes King or Queen for the day.
