Galette des rois | The “Monuments of Paris” trinkets by Hugo et Victor

7198 GALETTE HUGO ET VICTOR Galette des rois | The Monuments of Paris trinkets by Hugo et Victor

Barely over the excesses of the New Year celebrations, here we are at table once again for the traditional French dessert that celebrates the Epiphany and the arrival of the three kings – the galette des rois. This is not just any pie: the delicious creation by Hugo & Victor celebrates Paris!

A praline galette

For the 2015 Epiphany, Hugo & Victor decided to play it sweet by by using praline this year after working with kaffir lime, bergamot orange and vanilla last year. The puff pastry is as crispy as can be and contains an almond cream that matches perfectly the traditional praline paste that Hugues Pouget prepares the old-fashioned way with almonds from Provence and hazelnuts from Piedmont. It is also made golden and caramelised in a copper pot for a rich taste. Expect to pay €48 for a pie that serves 8 people.

Parisian trinkets

While the praline has clearly won us over, we like the trinkets or charms that the brand has hidden inside this year’s pie. While enjoying a piece of pie, be careful not to bite into one of the monuments of Paris because the figurines represent miniature versions of beautiful buildings like the Arc de Triomphe, Sacré-Cœur, the Eiffel Tower and Notre Dame. And if you don’t want to eat four pies to get the whole collection, you may like to know that the “Paris s’éveille” trinkets are on sale for €30.
