Are you ready to crown your queen or king on January 6, 2012?
One of the poster boys of the New Wave of French boulangerie, Gontran Cherrier announced his Galette des Rois 2012.
He describes the galette des rois as a high point in the life of the baker.
His taste goes for a galette des rois (king crown) whose crust crumbles nicely, an almond paste filling that tastes like real almonds and butter, and scents that tell a story, an emotion, a feeling.
In a nutshell, he writes that he created something that speaks of his faraway dreams yet is rooted in tradition of French cuisine.
If only I could taste it, then i would know if Gontran Cherrier made his vision come true.
Aspiring bakers who happen to be near Vevey (Switzerland), can take a Galette des Rois & des Princesses class at Atelier Cuisine on January 7, 2012. There are 5 seats left at the time of this writing.
