I normally celebrate Three Kings Day by making a Galette des Rois, a traditional France puff pastry pie filled with frangipane. It has a trinket baked in it and the person that finds it in their portion becomes king for the day. When you buy a Galette des Rois from the bakers in France they even supply a gold crown for the ‘king’ to wear. (They now also make an apple version which I think is even nicer.)
This year I decided to go a bit further and have a full blown Three Kings meal. The ‘royal’ menu was:
Asparagus (the food of kings) with soft boiled eggs and hollandaise
Wild boar and wild mushroom casserole with duchesse potatoes
Galette des Rois
Everyone seemed to enjoy celebrating the last day of Christmas and I think the royal feast will become a yearly event. Now what to do with that half bottle of fizz?!
