"Everything began with the little secret recipe of Joseph Grellier, pastry chef at the Saint-Michel-Chef-Chef, in the 1900s. He cooked round and golden patties in his wood burning oven which he baptized - Galettes St Michel. One fine morning his wife Constance had the idea of going around on his cariole and offer these patties to the beautiful ladies of Paris who came to dip on the beaches of the coast". The idea was born and it succeeded over the past century to bring it to be a French favorite, appreciated for its delicate buttery taste and crispiness. If you look closely you will see that each galette is imprinted with the figure of the archangel St Michel.
