The finest king cakes in Paris
Again this year, the chefs pâtissiers of the capital are competing creatively to concoct the finest galette des rois (king cake)! For Epiphany, on January 6th, 2019, you’ll be able to enjoy incredible, traditional or completely innovative versions of this French classic dessert.
Pierre Hermé; almonds and a tangy touch
The king of macarons could not fail to bring his personal touch to the king cake! For this year’s Epiphany treat, the famous chef chose to preserve the classic flavours of almond cream. He then opted for tangy touches of candied lemon, tempered with praline. To add to the visual appeal and taste allure, the puff pastry is caramelised.
Lenôtre; passion and pistachio
For Lenôtre, Guy Krenzer has come up with a galette des rois to make your mouth water. It’s made of brioche soaked in passionfruit juice, with almond cream and an irresistible pistachio praline. To wrap it all up perfectly, a fresh and fruity mango coulis awakens the flavours of this original and delicious cake.
Christophe Michalak; Gianduja and hazelnuts
Don’t be fooled. If this galette seems classic at first glance, it’s actually replete with carefully worked details to appeal to all ages. A caramelised puff pastry wraps seductively around an almond cream to die for, plus hazelnuts and flakes of Gianduja chocolate spread.
