Galette De Roi Be King for the day. Throughout the month of January, we will be
offering “Galette de Roi”. This is a continental tradition celebrated on the 6th January but is now
common throughout January. It is a tradition to celebrate the “epiphany” when the three wise
men known as Les Rois Mages or “ The sourcerer Kings” visited baby Jesus.
The Galette De Roi is a Buttery Flaky puff pastry tart filled with moist almond cream.
Inside the tart there is a “Feve” hidden, a porcelain figure. The tart is decorated with a golden
kings crown. It is a tradition in France to gather the family for enjoying this wonderful tart.
The youngest of the family hides under the table while the head of the family cuts the tart.
The person under the table then gives instruction on who gets which piece. Whoever gets the
“Feve” is King or Queen for the day and gets to wear the crown (and boss the others around)!!
