Galette Des Rois
The Epiphany is celebrated on the second Sunday after Christmas.
It is to celebrate the arrival of the biblical three kings to honour baby Jesus with gifts and a Galette des Rois (the Kings’ cake).
The Galette des Rois is a round puff pastry cake. The traditional version is filled with frangipane which is a rich almond cream, but variations exist. A fève (ceramic figurine) is hidden within the buttery cake.
The person who bites the trinket becomes “king or queen of the day,” receiving the golden paper crown and obligations such as buying the next Galette des Rois for the next celebration.
So French people never missed the chance to enjoy a galette des rois with family, friends, neighbours, colleagues or anyone, anytime, in January.
