Galette des Rois Celebration

Special Rendez-Vous

Tuesday, January 7, 2020
FIAF Skyroom

Start the New Year the French way with the delicious tradition of galette des rois!

Indulge in delicious galettes by Dominique Ansel Kitchen and cider from Romilly Cidre at this special edition of Rendez-Vous, FIAF’s monthly conversation en français evenings.

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, and also win a 30-minute treatment at Caudalie. All attendees will be entered to win a grand prize extending the royal treatments with an 80-minute Caudalie treatment, champagne, and more!

A French tradition dating back to the middle ages, the galette des rois is served only during the month of January.
