The Galette des Rois is a traditional French delicacy. Composed of puffed pastry, with a unique pastry with a small charm, the fève (small figurine), hidden inside to be discovered. Traditionally, a Galette des Rois is filled with frangipane, a sweet almond cream, and is the confection with which the festival of Epiphany is celebrated at the end of the Christmas season. Served on January 6th each year, in celebration of the Kings who traveled thousands of miles to welcome their Saviour. Epiphany incorporates a long standing family tradition to gather together and cut the famous pastry. The one who finds the fève is crowned and chooses his or her King or Queen for the day, whilst having all of their greatest wishes granted.
