La Galette des Rois


Epiphany, (from Greek "manifestation”) which falls on 6 January, is a Christian feast day that celebrates the revelation of God the Son as a human being in Jesus Christ. In this day we commemorate the visitation of the Biblical Magi (les Rois Mages) to the Baby Jesus. In France we use to eat the 6 and all the month of January a special cake called “la galette des rois” created to celebrate this event.

Is a cake made with puff pastry and almond cream, inside is hidden a little ceramic toy, if this toy will be on your slice of galette you’ll be the king! Of course a paper crown is provided with the cake..


Yesterday afternoon I bought a galette in a delicious pastry shop of Paris.. guess who found the toy?


The cat Carlo of course..  definitely the King!

Supervising his kingdom..
