Mes galettes et brioches des rois avec leurs couronnes

Yesterday was l'épiphanie, the day the French eat la galette des rois.

The tradition is that the youngest guest goes under the table and chooses who will eat which piece of the galette.

There is a small porcelain trinket called la fève (because it was originally a fava bean) in the cake and the person who finds it is the king or queen and can wear a very becoming cardboard crown 👑

Even though l'épiphanie is originally a religious celebration, the galette is a tradition for everybody in France, regardless of their religious beliefs because, well, it’s a good excuse to eat a very rich cake with your friends, family, colleagues…

Do you celebrate l'épiphanie in your country and if so, how?

Aux Fourneaux!

We all know our dear Marinette ‘From-the-bread’-Cheng lives in a bakery, right?  But WHAT would you find in a french bakery, actually? What pastries, what breads? If you’ve ever wondered about that, this post is here for you.

Note that this post is not exhaustive due to the wideness of french pâtisserie, but we tried to stick to the essentials~ !
