On Wednesday, January 6th (6:00 p.m., online event on Zoom), join our passionate teacher Céline to discover Epiphany.

Epiphany, sometimes called Three Kings' Day, is usually celebrated on January 6th. The feast commemorates principally (but not solely) the visit of the Magi to the Christ Child. 

In Francophone Europe, people share one of two types of king cake that day and throughout the month of January. In the northern half of France and Belgium the cake is called a galette des Rois, and is a round, flat, and golden cake made with flake pastry and often filled with frangipane, fruit, or chocolate. In the south, in Provence, and in the south-west, a crown-shaped cake or brioche filled with fruit called a gâteau des Rois is eaten. Both types of cake contain a charm, usually a porcelain or plastic figurine, called a fève (broad bean in French).
