Let Them Eat Cake
Today is the day that men, women and children all across France will eat a piece of cake in the hopes of finding a bean. January 6th marks the Christian holiday of Epiphany, (Fête des Rois, en français) which the French traditionally celebrate by baking a cake known as the Galette des Rois. Find the bean that's baked inside this yummy, almondy concoction and you're king for the day. Want to give it a try? Here's a recipe I found on Allrecipes.com, one of my favorite online food sites. Bon appétit!
