Galette des Rois

Eating a galette des rois is a French tradition which lasts all of the month of January

You can buy Galettes des rois at the boulangerie or at the supermarket, but it is really easy and to make yourself.  Two discs of puff pastry with a rich frangipane filling (or stewed apple if you’re feeling that’s too buttery!) and don’t forget to hide the Feve inside.  When cutting the galette, the youngest must sit under the table to say who has which piece and the person who has the Feve (or favour – a porcelaine figurine) in his piece gets to wear the crown.

Winter is a great time of year to eat Oysters

The oyster capital of Brittany is Cancale – they serve oysters all year round – you can eat them straight from the producer sitting on the quay overlooking Mont St Michel
