More galette

These French know how to party!
I’m betting it’s to counter the long, dark, post-holiday days.

But although the galette des rois are officially for the January 6 holiday, the patisseries make them all month long. And the French gobble them up.

Friday afternoon, we had another office party featuring scads of the almondlicious cakes and cider.

Once again, they were un peu tiede—warm from the oven. Flaky and delicious.

The perfect close to the workweek.


  1. Oh wow!!! I wish Friday afternoons were like that in my office!!

    Where do you work? If it isn't too rude to enquire?

    Love the blog! :)

  2. Yum - I love kings cake! There really is a perfect baked good for every holiday in France. I hope you're having a wonderful new year!

  3. Merci, ladies!

    Shopgirl, I work in an ad agency—the occasional soirée is definitely a great perk.

    Hope you're having a wonderful new year, too, erin!
