Galette des Rois 2016 : Time for sharing King Cake ;)

This year in France, Epiphany or Three Kings’Day was celebrated on January 3rd 2016! The French tradition of serving the Galette des Rois (King Cake) is a reference to the biblical three kings. But French people are so fond of the Galettes that the period of availability has extended until the end of the month of January! A very good piece of news for real gourmands 😉

There are two kinds of King Cake in France: “La Galette des Rois” or “La Brioche des Rois”. One is a round, flat, and golden cake made with flaky pastry and filled with almond cream called “frangipane”, fruits, or chocolate. The other is a circular crown-shaped yeasted cake called “brioche” festooned with colorful, sticky candied fruit. Both types of cake contain a trinket, usually a tiny porcelain or plastic figurine, called a “fève” (bean in English) and whoever gets it, becomes the king or the queen for the day and wear a gilded paper crown that bakeries give with the galette 😉

And as the fèves come in all kind of characters, shapes, sizes, or materials, some galettes lovers passionately collect them each year. That’s why even top pastry chefs create annual fèves with a unique design.

These beautiful cakes are displayed in every window of bakeries and pastry shops in Paris but here are our recommendations for the best ones in the neighborhood near B Montmartre Hotel. Because who doesn’t want to be king for a day? 😉
