Galette du Roi in Philadelphia

sacnphilly Dec 17, 2010 05:58 AM

Does anyone know where to get the French pastry baked for epiphany called galette du roi in the Delaware Valley? It's a flakey French pastry dough jammed with almond cream and a feve or bean inside. The person who finds the feve is King or Queen for the day. Wonderful and delicious tradition.

      If you can't find them, they are not a whole lot more difficult to make than a peanut butter sandwich.

        Aux Petits Delices in Wayne makes excellent ones, takes orders in advance, etc. We always get ours there.
