What is "Galettes des Rois" ?
In the French cultural area, this is a gathering of family and friends on the feast of the Three Kings at the beginning of January. Inside the cake ("Galette") is a small porcelain figure baked. The person in whose piece this figurine (called "Fêve") is hidden is named King ("Rois") or Queen of the Day and may wear the crown that comes with it.
The classic Galette des Rois à la frangipane is offered with a delicate almond cream filling.
