The best galette des rois in Toronto is just the thing to boost post-holiday blues. Sure, this festive season was a little ho-hum but January falls even further down the pleasure scale. Unless you’ve sworn off flavour, you can boost morale with one of France’s most decadent, most heavenly edible delights.
The galette des rois, a seasonal import, was traditionally made to celebrate Epiphany, when the Magi first visited Jesus. Today, the frangipane-filled, flaky puff pastry dessert symbolizes the new year and is often available throughout January. Just be sure to chew carefully as each galette des rois contains a bean or trinket inside. The person who finds the hidden toy is crowned king for the day.
New year’s resolutions are fine but, this January, make room for a galette des rois, or two. Made by some of Toronto’s most talented bakers, these are treats that are worth every calorie they bestow. Golden and flaky, bursting with a sweet filling, Toronto’s best galette des rois is a pastry that deserves its ardent following. See what all the fuss is about with our top picks.
