This is the third year running we are celebrating La Fête des Rois at Brasserie Zédel.
In France it is the tradition on Epiphany/Twelfth Night (6th January) to gather with friends and family and share a Galette des Rois, to celebrate the time when the three wise men followed the north star to Bethlehem to find baby Jesus and present him with gold, myrrh and incense.
The Galette dates back to the 14th century and was traditionally divided into enough portions for all the people present plus one more for the first poor person that passed by. Nowadays, the first portion is usually reserved for the youngest person in the family. A white or black bean (fève) is hidden in the cake and the one who finds it is crowned the king or queen and can choose their consort for the day. In the past, beans made out of porcelain, earthenware and even precious metals have been placed inside the cakes.
