In January, the Galette des Rois, or “King Cake” can be found in every bakery in France. Often topped with a golden paper crown, this cake is a showstopper made of puff pastry, crème patissière and frangipane, with a fève (charm or trinket) hidden inside. Bring this delightful tradition home, as Emma, a born-and-raised Breton, shows you how to make your own King Cake from scratch, from puff pastry to almond cream to final traditional decorations.
Vegetarian with dairy, eggs and gluten.
About the instructor: Brittany-born Emma is proud of her Celtic heritage. She learned to make crêpes from her mother, who learned from hers, probably before learning to read. Half of the restaurants in Brittany are crêperies, and Emma is passionate about sharing the authenticity of Breton culture and its cuisine with others. When not cooking, Emma runs a nonprofit, TINFA.org, dedicated to empowering teachers in underserved areas of the world.
