TV Vendée - Galettes des rois: une trentaine de boulangers en concours

Difficulty: difficulty - Intermediate Intermediate

France

Over thirty French bakeries from the Vendée region show off their skills in a galette des rois (Kings' cake) contest. The lucky judges, whose onerous task is to taste those delicious galettes, go to great lengths to explain their choices and make our mouths water. The galette des rois is traditionally served at Epiphany and is notoriously difficult to make. It comes in two varieties, flaky or brioche, and is available at French bakeries throughout the month of January.

Clementines are an especially popular and low calorie wintertime snack.
