The King Cakes are back!

January 5th, 2020 is the festival of Epiphany and tradition dictates that we indulge in the delicious treats called the galettes des Rois (king cakes) to mark this special occasion. Each year, the top chefs in Paris vie with one another to create the most beautiful, original and inventive galette. Discover our non-exhaustive selection of the best in the capital!

 

Almond cream, chocolate... the ‘classics’ are always popular…

Stohrer, the oldest patisserie in Paris, has chosen to maintain tradition with a king cake crafted by Jeffrey Cagnes in which almond is queen. Fancy a delicious frangipane? Then you’ll want to choose among the galettes that Christophe Michalak has come up with (or opt for all three!). Almond, gianduja or pistachio? If you can’t decide, you’ll just have to take them all! The Grand Véfour, the first grand restaurant in Paris, has a gourmet galette awaiting you, courtesy of the Michelin-starred chef Guy Martin. Its crisp caramel frangipane hides a tasty cashew cream. Chocolate lovers; Jean-Paul Hévin's king cake will thrill your taste buds. As every year, the creations of this great chef chocolatier honours the brown gold with the most exceptional cocoa from all over the world. Simple but outstandingly delicious describes the galette offered by the chef pâtissier Philippe Conticini, who has concocted a frangipane creation with ground almonds roasted and flavoured with vanilla and rum.

 

… as are the most original

Inspired by Notre Dame Cathedral, Nina Métayer's king cake for The French Bastards is designed to resemble one of the great building’s magnificent rose windows. Also waiting to be savoured is Fauchon's signature galette, born from the audacity of chef pâtissier François Daubinet, who knows exactly how to bring together the taste of bergamot and blueberries in his masterful new creation. Pistachio lovers will be delighted with the offering from the Maison Dalloyau, which offers a creamy king cake with green pistachios sourced from Iran and Bronte, Sicily. How about a galette des Rois inspired by the famous tarte Tatin accidentally created by the Tatin sisters? Absolutely stunning, this masterpiece by Laurent Duchêne, a Meilleur Ouvrier de France winner, is baked inside out and hides within itself a delicious almond cream garnished with flax seeds, squash and oat flakes. Irresistible!
