Galette des rois, aka king’s cake is a French pastry produced to celebrate epiphany. It consists of two rounds of puff pastry encasing almond frangipane, dusted with a ring of sugar. It is buttery, flaky, and delicious.
The fun part is that a small fève (bean) is hidden in the galette. Whoever finds the fève is the king or queen for the day and they get to wear the crown!
These days, the fève is often a ceramic or plastic item. We’ve found these amazing ceramic pastries and ordered them from France. You might even recognize a few pastries that I make, like cannelés, palmiers and croissants!
I’m making a limited number of galettes des rois this year. One galette is $40 and serves 8 people. Each one comes with a paper crown and special fève.
