January is the month of la galette in France.  La galette des rois, or King's Cake, a flaky buttery pastry filled with almond paste, is traditionally eaten at Epiphany on 6th January, but in reality it's eaten throughout the month at social gatherings, schools, offices, New Year ceremonies and so on. As today is Epiphany I thought I'd share with you just how easy it is to make your own galette des rois.  For details on the traditions that surround the eating of the cake take a look at this post I wrote a while back.
