Since the Middle Ages, the festival of the Epiphany on January 6 has been celebrated in France with the Galette des Rois, literally the Kings’ cake. Made of puff pastry filled with frangipane, an almond-flavored paste, 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! The modern galette, sold in all French bakeries in the beginning of January, remains a popular tradition that brings friends and family together for a special fête.
