Kings and Cakes: la Galette des Rois

Bonjour !

In the early days of January, we take out the cardboard crowns and choose a new king or queen.

France doesn’t have the best relationship with royalty; “it’s complicated”, but for one day we don’t care, because la Galette des Rois is really tasty!

Today we talk about yet another French tradition that involves eating together with friends and family.

Et toi ?
Do you eat a King Cake for this day?

What other customs of your country involve traditional food?

Bonne journée,

Géraldine
