A galette is a galette is a galette? As it turns out, no. Here’s a little ranking of the puff pastry confections I’ve consumed this month…
Third place: La Grande Epicerie
Pros: Their individual galette is perfect for two (or one). Frangipane filling had a boozy hint.
Cons: Pastry wasn’t flaky enough and the surface was covered in a thick glaze reminiscent of pancakes.
Second place: Neighborhood boulangerie (corner of rue des Rennes and rue des Meziers, 6e)
Pros: Delicately fragrant, almost eggy, frangipane.
Cons: Crown and fève were “Avatar” themed. No gun-toting aliens in my dessert, please!
First place: Eric Kayser
Pros: The most beautiful, perfect puff pastry — light, flaky and tender.
Cons: Forgot to include the crown.
Would you be so kind as to share your favorite galette, mes amis? I’d love to hear!
