Learn more about the most loved New Year traditions in France. Enjoy a slice of homemade Galette.
In France, since the Middle Ages, the festival of the Epiphany has been celebrated with the Galette des Rois, literally the Kings’ cake. Made of delicate puff pastry and filled with frangipane—an almond-flavored filling—this beloved treat is only available during the month of January. Each galette contains a small, hand-painted porcelain charm, or fève. Find the fève, and become King or Queen (with gold paper crown) for the day!
