I believe your landlady has invited you for la galette des rois, which is a fancy way to call a frangipane pie that has a token hidden in it. The person who gets the token in his or her piece of pie gets the crown (and gets to buy the pie next time). It’s truly delicious and I should totally make one. If only ground almonds were cheaper in New Zealand. *ponders* Maybe at Bin Inn…

I didn’t comment on the pancakes post but YAY on the job!

The food spread photos made me super homesick, I long for proper charcuterie and proper bread… Please please eat lots and lots on my behalf!!

Hope you had a lovely expats Christmas lunch!
