Bonne Fête des Rois!

La Fête des Rois or King’s Day is an anticipated holiday and tradition in France which takes place 12 days after Christmas. To celebrate, La Galette des Rois or a King’s Cake is baked in many households and sold throughout the month of January in bakeries or supermarkets all over France to celebrate La Fête des Rois or King’s Day. Depending on the region of France, there are few galette variations some with fruits, nuts, or no filling but my ultimate favorite galette is the galette filled with almond paste, (not to be confused with the Frangipane filling which is half crème d’amande and half crème pâtissière.)  Depending on how rich you want your galette you can adapt the recipe check out La Galette des Rois – 3 Easy Recipes.

Happy Epiphanie Day!
