Galette des rois is a traditional pastry that the French eat in January. It is normally consumed on Epiphany Day, which takes place on January 6th and corresponds to the day when Jesus was presented to the Magi. If most French people buy galette des rois a the baker's, it is actually very easy to bake at home! The recipe is extremely simple, quick and so much less expensive than what you can buy at the baker's or the supermarket. A few tips about wine & food pairing conclude the article. Enjoy!
Autumn is back, and with it, the harvest season - grapes of course, but apples as well! This is the time to taste and bake a Loire Valley dessert: the winemaker's tart, originally from Chinon, is a light and crispy apple pie covered with wine jelly. I regularly serve it during the wine tastings and the picnics I organise in the vineyards. You will find it in many bakeries and pastry shops in Touraine.
