Dräikinneksdag: The Day Of The Three Kings

galette des rois 2

On January 6th while I was celebrating Ethiopian Christmas eve in the Grand Duchy, my Ethiopian gastronomic journey here in Europe brings yet another traditional treat on my plate.

Galette des rois is a pastry tart, which traditionally eaten here in Luxembourg on the feast of the Epiphany, to commemorate the The Three Wise Men or Kings, who traveled to visit Jesus after his birth, bearing gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh.

The pastry tart comes with golden cardboard crown, for a person who finds the bean (a figurine) in a piece of tart, to wear as an entitlement of being king or queen for the day.

Fortunately, a colorful little figurine was hiding in my piece of delicious tart and I was being able to make a beautiful memory of being a queen for the day.
