Galette des rois / King Cake
It’s a flaky cake filled with frangipane cream that is eaten on the 6th of January.
It comes from a 700-year old French tradition to celebrate the Epiphany, a religious feast day commemorating the arrival of the Three Kings to the manger where Jesus was born.
Today, it’s eaten throughout the month of January and is simply a festive way to celebrate the new year with family and friends, regardless of religious background.
