We got our gallette des rois, and have been eating it (there's only the two of us), but then I thought it has eggs in it, perhaps we should be storing it in the fridge instead of on the counter? Anybody know?

Never store it in the fridge.

It keeps just fine out of the fridge. I have never put one in the fridge, even though it takes days to get through one.

OK, good. And we haven't died yet either, so there's more proof....

Well, I admit Ido keep mine in a relatively cool place (a cupboard that is not near the fridge, oven or cooktop).

BTW, Unlike the US, where all eggs are washed before distribution, in France, and indeed most of Europe, eggs are not refrigerated at all. Just don’t wash them and they will keep for up to a month right there in an egg basket on your kitchen counter.

Yes, that is true for uncooked eggs in the shell, however, once an egg has been cooked, whether or not it is still in the shell, it is subject to going bad. But perhaps when it is mixed with sugar or flour, it is stabilized.

Only two more portions left now...

Well cake and coookies have eggs in them, and I never refrigerate those things. I think the only worry is if it is an egg/milk based dessert, like a custard or a pudding that you definitely need to refrigerate it. On that note, we always leave our frangipane out till gone.

One other thing you'll find once you get here is that the French/Europeans pretty much disregard many of those "basic" hygiene rules you learned back in the States. Cooked eggs actually keep longer than raw eggs (at least raw eggs that have been opened). And last time I was in the US, I remember the "health warnings" on the Denny's menu about ordering eggs "sunny side up" or "over easy." (Also for meat cooked medium rare or rare.)

Have even seen a few reports here that mention the "salmonella problem" in the US when it comes to eggs and chickens. Has to do with conditions in the food preparation industries. And don't forget, chickens are rinsed in bleach over there before they can be sold! It's those sorts of things that put Europe off any "free trade" agreements with the US.

But, take a cue from the shop where you get your foodstuffs. When you buy a galette de roi here, it's out on the shelf in the bakery, not kept in a refrigerator case. In fact, my DH won't eat galette unless it has been warmed up in the oven before serving. Refrigerating a galette would make the pastry part go all mushy!
