We’ve rung in the New Year, now it’s time for the Galette des Rois 2021! As always, we let you know where you can find it in the major cities of Australia. So read on to find out where to get the Galette des Rois in Adelaide, Brisbane, Gold Coast, Hobart, Melbourne, Perth, Sunshine Coast, and Sydney.
WHAT IS THE GALETTE DES ROIS?
6 January is the date of the Epiphany, also the 12th day of Christmas when the three Kings are said to have brought gifts for Baby Jesus. While no longer a particularly religious holiday in France, the occasion is still celebrated with the galette des rois, a cake which can only be found during the month of January.
The cake itself is filled with frangipane, an almond paste like mixture. It has also traditionally contained a “fève”, which is a porcelain charm hidden inside the cake.
There is a tradition to the cake, whereby the youngest person hides under the table and tells whoever is cutting the cake who should get which piece. The person who receives the fève in their slice then gets to wear the crown and is King or Queen and names their partner for the day.
The tradition of the galette des rois dates back to the 14th Century!
