Galette des rois, or King Cake, is a festive laminated pastry with almond/ pastry cream. This cake will usually pop up in windows and showcases of pastry shops in late December but only to last a week or two. I’ve had the privilege of trying this cake a few years back at a 3 Michelin star restaurant during a tasting menu. The cake was portioned out to individuals around the table, the recipient with a piece of porcelain inside the cake was said to have good luck or take a trip to the dentist. Happy New Year!
