Celebrate Epiphany with a traditional French dessert

Christmas and New Year may be behind us but there’s still reason to celebrate as today is Epiphany, a holiday widely celebrated in France.

Commemorating the twelfth day after Christmas, when the three Kings come to pay tribute to the baby Jesus, a traditional French delicacy called Galette des Rois is served.

Galette des Rois is a flat, round cake with an almond cream filling and, according to tradition, if you find a tiny figure in your slice then you are crowned king or queen for the day, and wear a golden crown.
