The Dessert of January.
In the month of January expect a Galette du Roi to be served at every occasion you attend in France. That’s the fashion in January. Guests are eager to see who will be king de la journée and will wear the crown. Other traditions that go along with the cake: The holder of the fève must provide the next king cake! When serving, children hide under the table and shout from below who gets each piece.
La Galette des Rois are available at every boulangerie and pâtisserie. There are various seizes to fit the size of your event (caution the galette for one doesn’t come with a crown nor a fève).
