The French have been serving up galette des rois since the 14th-century. The galette des rois, celebrating Epiphany, the day the Three Kings (les rois) visited the infant Jesus. The festival of Epiphany is due at the end of the Christmas season.
Composed of two circles of puff pastry sandwiching a frangipan filling, each comes with a crown and always has a trinket, called a fève, or bean, baked into it. It’s an invitation to gather, as much party game as pastry. If your slice has the fève, you get the crown and the right to be king or queen for the day.
