The King of NYC’s Galette des Rois

King cake season is here and highlights some of New York City’s best bakeries. King cake celebrates the Epiphany, the day the Three Kings visited Baby Jesus, and the season lasts until Mardi Gras. The New Orleans version is covered with purple and green frosting, but a traditional French galette des rois consists of layers of puff pastry with an almond filling and a small, potentially tooth-chipping favor hidden inside. Whoever wins it gets to be king or queen for a day.

One of our favorite bakeries on the list is Balthazar which features a galette des roes with whole almonds and fruit at the center. $40;80 Spring St., at Crosby St.; 212-965-1414.

Churchill has short-term corporate housing available in New York City and other cities Nationwide. Please contact us at 866-255-0593 or for more information.
