Galette des Rois Celebration
January 7, 2020 @ 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm
Start the New Year the French way at a festive Galette des Rois celebration on Tuesday, January 7th, in the Skyroom at the French Institute Alliance Française. Guests will indulge in delicious galettes by Dominique Ansel Kitchen and cider from Romilly Cidre.
Literally the “Kings’ cake,” the galette des rois is a mouth-watering puff pastry confection with almond-flavored frangipane filling. Each cake contains a small, porcelain charm, or fève. Find the fève, and you’ll be crowned king or queen for the day!
A French tradition dating back to the middle ages, the galette des rois is served only during the month of January.
Tickets to this annual celebration are $35 per person; $30 for FIAF members.
