This Galette season, Poilâne asked Le Petit Atelier de Paris to create a charm that would symbolize luck and happiness. They crafted two hands; one bearing a heart, and the other a four-leaf clover.

Unfortunately, for us here in North America, Poilâne will not deliver the Galette Des Rois. They can only be purchased in their Boulangeries around Paris.
Poilâne is one of the well known Boulangeries in Paris. They make their famous crusty bread, loafs, the Sourdough bread and the the small cookies called Punitions. It is the favourite boulangerie of the Barefoot Contessa, Ina Garten. When she was looking for an apartment in the Left Bank of Paris, she specifically asked her Real Estate Agent to find an apartment that is within walking distance to Poilâne.
Poilâne has several stores in Paris and one in London:
May the Hand with the cloverleaf bring you Luck and the Hand with the heart bring you Happiness in 2012!
