la galette des rois : a hard cake usually flavored with almonds and with a small figurine hidden inside it
La galette des rois is traditionally eaten around Epiphany (6 January). The person who finds the fève (figurine) in their part is considered le roi (the king) or la reine (the queen) for the rest of the day.
