Epiphany in France et la Galette des Rois

I totally forgot to post about this grande fete in France-- It's the EPIPHANY, the day when the Three Wise Men came to visit the new Baby Jesus and to bestow him with gifts.  The galette is a tradition here in France as well as the gateau des rois, which is more traditionally eaten in the south of France... and is a brioche, not a galette.  So, here is mine for this year.. it was VERY VERY YUMMY- to the last crumb... We had our galette On Friday evening with Animesh and Ajali, because Anjali was leaving on Sunday.  I found the feve, or little cute favor in my slice, but passed it over to Anjali, so she could be crowned QUEEN! It was all great fun!
