Fête des Rois January 24

The annual Fête des Rois celebration returns in 2016 on Sunday, January 24, from 3 p.m. to 4:15 p.m. at the Alliance’s Kamm House in Goose Hollow.

The event will include a presentation in English and easy-to-understand French on the origins of the celebration and the current-day practices in France. The highlight will be the tasting of the authentic, freshly baked galettes generously provided by St. Honoré Boulangerie, as well as imported sparkling juices and Perrier.

Galettes come in many different designs, but the St. Honoré cakes use the traditional sunflower shape and are hand-crafted and baked to order using Shepherd’s Grain’s flour and top-quality, locally-produced butter. Whoever finds the special charm in their piece of cake will be crowned “king” and “queen” of the fête.

Alliance members have the option to order galettes from Saint Honoré Bakery at 10% discount using the code Galette4AF; order online.

$8 for members, $12 for non-members. All are welcome; reservations are required in advance. Sorry, this event is now SOLD OUT. Email info@afportland.org if you’d like to be placed on a waitlist.
