THE KING’S CAKE : LA GALETTE DES ROIS
(FRENCH CELEBRATION /TRADITION)
SIDEWALK
23 Sanusi Fafunwa Street, Victoria Island, Lagos

A traditional French holiday, the Epiphany, falls on January 6th when the three kings arrived to honor the newborn Christ child. Today, French friends and families gather around the table together to enjoy a special cake: la Galette des Rois, or the Kings’ Cake.

More popular, it is regarded as a tradition for good luck in the coming year. the Galette des Rois comes with a lucky charm made.
Much more than just a cake, this pastry is a beloved tradition that traces its roots back to the Roman Empire.
Why so? Is it the great taste of the pastry, the change of roles for one day, the significance of this event, the satisfaction of finding the lucky charm,” la fève”.
Everyone picks 1 piece of galette; the one who finds la “fève” is made the king of the day and wears the crown. He picks a queen. Same process is done in reverse if a lady finds the” the lucky charm”. Tradition says that the next party should be at the king's expense…
