Desperate for Galette du Roi

Pointybird | Apr 14, 2006 01:01 AM

I once attended a party where I had a cake so fabulous that I have dreamt about it ever since. It was called a Galette (or possibly a Gateau) du Roi. It's a big buttery almondy pastry thing with a bean hidden inside. The cake-eater who finds the bean is called the King (or Queen) and brought drinks and such. But the cake is the thing! And I want one! And I am so dumb about things French that I have no idea how to find one, and when I try searching for them on the Net I get a flood of pages in French. Help!
