La Galette des rois

I will definitively try this recipe on the 5th!!!


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. Custom has it that the youngest child hides under the table and chooses which piece of galette each guest receives.

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!
