La Galette des rois


January 6th is l’épiphanie or la Galette des rois /King’s Cake Day celebrated all over France reminiscent of the biblical tradition of the 3 wise men’s  journey bearing gifts after the birth of Jesus.  Should you get the fève or bean hidden in the galette at the  Tirage des Rois you shall be crowned king or queen for the day. My favorite is la galette à la frangipane ( tastes a lot like my other favorite almond cake le pithiviers). I enjoyed this very simple  video recipe in French should you be so inclined to bake your own buttery and flaky galette… will probably try a new galette from one of L.A’s  fine French bakeries! (here are my Top French bakeries in LA )

Bonne recette! Easy recipe!

Les fèves traditionelles ( impossible to accidently swallow! ) There’s a new theme each year ( even Cocal Cola!) Did you know that collecting these feves is called: Favophilie!

    Where can you buy a “feve” if you wish to make your own Galette des rois?
