Pithivier at Le Pichet

IMG_1079

Pithivier, also know as Galette de Rois in France, is  a traditional dessert make with sweetened puff pastry filled with almond cream, then baked to golden brown.  Although it is famously served in France on January 6th to celebrate the 12th day of Christmas, we love it all year long because it is so good!  Now at Le Pichet, while it lasts, try the version made by our pastry chef Drake Jones. Drake flavors the filling with a little rum and serves the galette with vanilla creme anglais.  Yummy!
