Galette des Rois

Galette des Rois

In the Catholic tradition, The Christmas season ends on January 6 with the Feast of the Epiphany, a family- centered day which marks the visit of the Three Kings to the infant Jesus. The French celebrate the Epiphany with the ceremonious eating of the “Galette des Rois” (Kings Cake), a sweet frangipane tart that tastes as rich as its tradition.

As custom dictates, whoever finds the “feve” (a small bean of charm baked inside the cake) is king of queen for the day. Every Galette comes with a crown, so the winner will look the part too!

Good Luck finding the Feve!
