Who was Cassandra?


  • In the Iliad, she is described as the loveliest of the daughters of Priam (King of Troy), and gifted with prophecy. The god Apollo loved her, but she spurned him. As a punishment, he decreed that no one would ever believe her. So when she told her fellow Trojans that the Greeks were hiding inside the wooden horse...well, you know what happened.

In one of our favourite bakeries, you could buy a single slice of galette des rois, and every slice contained a fêve! We used to indulge, and I still have a few around, mostly little Maries and Josephs, my favourite one though, which I keep in one of my pockets as a kind of talisman, was a little pottery miniature galette des rois! This struck me as rather charmingly post-modern in a patisserie kind of way, a mise en abyme of galettes des rois!

Your apple star looks very nice. I'd not heard of those millefeuille things called Napoleons.
