Having an 'Epiphany' on January 6th? a 'Galette des Rois' roundup

Rather than serve a warmed up version of last year thoughts on the European Tradition of La Galette des Rois, here is a number of stories and recipes I gathered.

Let's start with Hawaii where the Oahu French Language Meetup Group has a Galette des Rois party.

Want to bake your own, Experience Plus offers The northern-style pastry and almond cake recipe.

As for Metro France they share (in French) a Selection of Galette des Rois offered by various French stores and bakers including Fauchon, Eric Kayser, Dalloyau and last Paul whose Galette and Couronne illustrates this piece.


I also found this Video Recipe of the Galette des Rois featuring Francois Payard of Payard Patisserie via the French Institute- Alliance Francaise.

The result is Punk House (published by Harry N. Abrams, October 2007). Thurston Moore of Sonic Youth lent a helping hand as did Tim Findlen. Sounds like she has a 'documentary' planned on the topic from what I could gather on her 'My Space'...
