Galette Des Rois Celebration
January 17 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm$35
Kick off la nouvelle année the French way at the French Institute Alliance Française’s Galette des Rois party! Ring in the new year with traditional galette des rois and brioche des rois from Maison Kayser, a glass of wine, and savory bites.
In France, since the Middle Ages, the festival of the Epiphany has been celebrated with the Galette des Rois, literally the Kings’ cake. Made of delicate puff pastry and filled with frangipane—an almond-flavored filling—this beloved treat is only available during the month of January. Each galette contains a small, hand-painted porcelain charm, or fève. Find the fève, and you’ll be crowned king or queen for the day.
New this year, discover Maison Kayser’s signature brioche des rois, a South of France delicacy made with raisins, candied fruits, and orange blossom water.
Tickets to this annual celebration are $35 per person; $30 for FIAF members.
