I love cultural food traditions! In France Epiphany [Jan 6th], is celebrated with a delicious frangipane filled puff pastry cake called La Galette des Rois or the Cake of the King, a 700 year old tradition. Boulangeries and pâtisseries in France like Pierre Hermé, Ladurée, Angelina’s and Aoki partake in the tradition and hide a figurine [originally a fève /bean] into the tart, whoever gets the bean in their slice, gets to be king for the day! Epiphany is the celebration of the day the Wise men/Kings visited infant Jesus. The traditional galette is sliced in a specific number of slices- one for each person and one extra for a poor person who might pass by. The youngest person sits under the table and manages the distribution of the slices, by calling out the family names in no specific order. The cake usually comes with a paper crown, the person who finds the figurine in their slice, gets to wear the crown. A fun tradition of gathering and sharing something delicious and commemorating the visit of the Magi to Jesus, the revelation of God incarnate.
