One of my favourite bakeries in New York is Épicerie Boulud. One day, I’ll tell you how delicious their almond croissants are.
But for now, I’m just going to show you how delectable their galettes des rois are, and encourage you to try them — quickly. These buttery, flaky, frangipane-filled pastries are only served during the month of January to celebrate the Three Kings’ journey to see the baby Jesus — hence the name, “Kings’ Cake”.
Special thanks to Agatha for introducing me to this wonderful winter treat.
