Happy Three Kings Day!

My good friend Anita had us over tonight for a slice of galette des rois, the cake of the king, in celebration of Epiphany, the night the kings arrived in Bethlehem. Tradition is that the youngest person in the house - tonight, my daughter - sits under the table and says who gets each slice of cake. In one slice is a Baby Jesus or ceramic trinket or - in tonight's cake - a chocolate covered almond. Anita's college-age daughter found the almond, but let my daughter wear the crown. The evening was tres magnifique!
