The New Year is here and a lot more celebrations are on the way. Let’s all celebrate together the festival of Epiphany, widely known as “La fete des rois”. It calls for ‘Galette’, the special dish of the day. The French tradition of serving this frangipane-filled tart on the Twelfth Day of Christmas or Epiphany Day has biblical origins and is a reference to the biblical three kings. A fève (bean) is traditionally baked in the galette, which is sliced with a piece for every person present moreover an extra slice called « part du Bon Dieu » (God’s piece) or « part de la Vierge » (the Virgin Mary’s piece). The person who receives the piece containing the fève is “crowned” king or queen for the day. The remaining piece, then called part du pauvre (poor man’s piece), was traditionally shared with a needy person.
