I also got a pack of a yummy Galette des Rois whish is a special cake most served by the French tradition as a frangipane filled tart known as the ’galette des rois’ (or the ’gateau des rois’ in the South of France) on, or around the 6th January, (the first Sunday of each New Year) actually dates back to the 14th century.

In French, the festival takes place around Epiphany, the twelfth day of Christmas, when the wise men visited baby Jesus. According to tradition, the ‘galette des rois’, was to “draw the kings” to the Epiphany.

It goes rather well with a cup of tea or a glass or two of white wine. It is traditionally divided into enough portions for all the people present plus one more for the first poor person that passes by. A lucky charm (une fève – originally a bean but now more often a plastic trinket) is baked inside the galette, and whoever receives the fève is crowned king or queen for the day. It is the perfect opportunity to invite family and friends or maybe get together with those neighbours you haven’t yet met!

YUMMY CAKE and lovely to know others traditions from their food.

Indonesia also has lot’s of tradition food. And it variants from differents part of Indonesia.. I’ll write down some later especially Kapurung, coto Makassar and others yummy meals from Indonesia, coz today, all about French…
