Yesterday the Postman brought me a treasure! My friend, Mimi, sent me a New Year card, in which were hiding these three little figurines, called "Fèves". (which is a word for broad beans in French)
These little figures are baked into the traditional pastry called Galette, served at Epiphany. There are lots of traditions in various parts of France. I've posted about this before, and now I'm happy to have my own Fèves for next year.
Included in the envelope were these pages from the magazine, Femme Actuelle, and has several recipes for this delicious pastry. I want to try both. I don't think I'll wait for next January to try them. I won't be adding the fève, though. They will go into the box with the Advent/Christmas/Epiphany box.
Avec toute ma gratitude, Mimi
