Categories : Eating, Lifestyle, published on : 1/6/23

January 6 is the day of the Epiphany, and celebrates the appearance of the Three Wise Men with the newborn Jesus. 
But for the greediest, January 6th is especially the day of the Galette des Rois! The traditional brioche pastry filled with frangipane hides a small bean that crowns the luckiest King or Queen of the day! 

Over the years, several recipes have been created, and today, there is something for everyone!  Traditional, with almond cream, with chocolate filling, exotic… everyone will find something to their liking, and we hope you find the bean too! 

Below are our suggestions for all types of galettes! 

♦ All the lovers of the traditional galette will be able to taste the galette from Benoît Castel, crispy, with a delicate flavor of vanilla from Madagascar… A delight!

♦ For those who are looking for an aesthetic side and a bit of magic, the pastry chef Quentin Lechat, has created a rum-vanilla frangipane cake, decorated with Brazil nut leaves! It's beautiful, and very good! 

♦ But that's not all, Japan lovers will find the perfect galette at Maison Kitsuné who created, in collaboration with the bakery Liberté, a galette with Japanese flavors, covered with sesame seeds and composed of a flaky pastry with vegetable charcoal filled with frangipane, with black sesame cream and buckwheat cream

Happy January 6th to all!
