AT this time of year many people will enjoy eating a galette des rois, but if you buy one from a boulangerie just outside Caen you could be in for a surprise.
Baker Julien Vitrebert will place two tiny ingots of gold, worth €400 (£386) each, in two of his galettes over the coming weeks, quite a change from the usual plastic toy that sees the winner wear a paper crown.
