Happy Epiphany! Celebrating 2022's Epiphany Sunday

We're celebrating the Epiphany in France today. Although the origins of this holiday are ancient (see last year's 2021 Epiphany post for more info), I'm convinced most French people observe it today solely for the cake.

Everyone has their favorite, be it the sweeter almond filled galettes or the less sweet brioche type couronne des rois. Personally, I like the galettes, my husband likes the couronnes. Last year we bought a gluten free galette for me and a couronne for him, but that was a bit much for me to finish alone. This year I opted out and let him eat his breakfast couronne by himself, content with my gluten free toast. It's the fèves I like the most anyway (I have quite the collection). We were surprised to find we had two this year, as well as two crowns (we'll rule jointly).

For more galette goodness, see Elle magazine's annual slideshow: Les plus belles galettes des rois 2022. Warning – your mouth will water!

  1. Okay, so now I'm hungry. (: I Googled fèves and was all have a collection of fava beans? Luckily, I was able to click on something else and see the history of king cakes and realized you were referring to trinkets. Which, I must say, are a way better thing to hide in a cake than beans. (: Happy Belated Epiphany to you!
