Cowart's Common Room
Galettes Du Roi

About twelve months ago we were discussing these delicious cakes that are traditionally served in France at Epiphany and I think our dear UPL provided a recipe. They contain a little figure known as a fevre and the one that finds the fevre gets to wear the crown. Well for all you cooks out there I have two of the little figures free and gratis to the first two people who respond to this posting telling me how wonderful I am. Outright crawling and gut churning flattery is encouraged!
Go ahead, see how obnoxious you can be.

Fennie's Avatar Hi Toady, I was certainly one of those promoting Galettes du Roi and would be delighted to receive a fevre if you have any spare. That would be most kind! I am sure flattery is not needed, for who could compete with your brilliant comic one-liners! I'll drop you a pm with my address.

Unpeuloufoque's Avatar Well remembered Toady, and what a kind gesture, no Milla you can not shove it in your christmas cake make a gallete for ephinay and dont be churlish! its a great tradition and easy to make. last year I thought of making sets up to sell with hand made fevres based on ancient ones plus a recipe and crown in a bag, this year I am so snowed under with making reinder camels and noel doves etc I haven't time! Perhaps if I start in january I amy get them done for 2010!!Rolling Eyes

Elizabethd's Avatar Toady you are of course wonderful....but I dont need the feves as I ahve a drawerful! The nicest ones are the little figures, but so many bakers now use the meetal things, not so attractive.

Toady's Avatar OK Fennie and Milla pm me your addresses please.
I can in no way be held responsible for any time spent in A & E after swallowing said fevres or in the Dentist having expensive reconstruction after teeth breaking or chipping.

Salle de Bain's Avatar No room for a fevre in this house I'm my baking attempts usually produce something the armed forces might be glad of when the missiles finally run out.....such is the weight and density!!

However, I'm fascinated by the custom, and would love to see what one looks of a fevre anyone?.....does it mean 'favour'?
