Tradition: The epiphany is an opportunity to gather with family or friends around a galette des rois. Tradition has it that when the youngest of the guests hides under the table when the cake is cut. Once the portions are divided, he is asked to allocate them, blindly, to each of the guests. The part containing the bean allows its owner to be called king or queen. The crown is given to him, and he must at the same time designate a queen or king to accompany him.
Tasting: The "galette des rois" of the Atelier Canourguais is delicious. A fine and crispy puff pastry made of pure butter, generously topped with frangipane. The frangipane is a mixture of almond cream and custard.
This cake is rich in almonds, as it is made from 75% almond cream (of which 25% is whole almond) and 25% pastry cream.
To be eaten at room temperature or slightly warmed in the oven, there are two schools, the choice is yours!
Each cake is delivered with its bean and crown.
This year, the porcelain beans are on the theme of pastry with 12 beans representing a cake for each month of the year.
Note: The patties are prepared just before shipping to ensure maximum freshness. The cakes are shipped to metropolitan France. They must be consumed quickly after receipt to maintain optimal quality.
