Because both of us at Pistache love the tradition—and above all, puff pastry and almond cream—we were eager to make Pistache’s galette des rois (the “kings cake”). And time is coming!
In France, the large crispy, creamy, golden pie is eaten for the Epiphany, on the sixth day of the new year: a traditional celebration of the arrival of the Biblical Magi charged with presents for newborn Jesus.
At home and at the office, everybody gets one, two, three slices of the tart, looking for the little porcelain figure hidden in the middle of it. The one who finds it becomes queen or king of the day, gets a crown and has to choose her/his king/queen among the guests. Not to mention that the kids love it.
So enjoy the tradition and be prepared for some flaky crumbs: preorder one of our galettes des rois!
They’ll be available in different sizes (4, 6 and 8 persons), plain or with pistachios, of course. (Our puff pastry will be made with butter only; we use organic flour, eggs and milk).
The prices are :
The good news is that we will deliver it for free to you (Manhattan, Brooklyn and Queens) from Friday to Monday, from January 6 to the end of the month. So contact us anytime to preorder, by email (email@example.com) or phone (646 207 9390 / 646 477 7244)
While you wait for the celebration, have a wonderful holiday time!
