The elegant galette de Rois of L’Hotel The Peninsula Paris

The elegant galette de Rois of L’Hotel The Peninsula Paris

This year the galette de Rois of L’Hotel The Peninsula Paris plays with traditional flavors associated with the Three Kings Day, while also updating it, offering an elegant sweet like this puff pastry gallete and brioche crown.

Crown-shaped and covered in puff pastry, this subtly reinvented cake contains a puff pastry brioche heart that strikes a balance between crunchy and soft. With an almond and hazelnut cream placed on a bed of candied lemon, pastry chef Julien Álvarez (so good #8 and the next so good #15) manages to combine the rounded scent of almond, hazelnut’s power, and the freshness and acidity of the lemon confit, thereby creating a perfect balance of flavors.
