Where to eat the best galette des rois in Paris?

It is the queen of January: the galette of course! Classic or gastronomic, it seduces all palates and takes pride of place in all bakeries and pastry shops from New Year's Day. But not all these temptations are equal. Jack's Hotel has investigated and gives you its small selection of the best addresses.

As soon as we turn the page to the new year, the galette arrives. And in the blink of an eye, it displaces the Christmas log in the hearts of food lovers.

In Paris, the almond cake is popular with the public. There is even a contest for the best almond cake in the Ile-de-France. Exit Jack's Hotel, turn left onto Avenue d'Italie and stop at number 117. There you'll find the bakery of François Vacavant, one of the artisans featured in the top 10 in 2019. His galette got the 7th position. It's well worth a taste!

Not far away, at 2, rue Wurtz, Laurent Duchêne 's store is a must. For the Epiphany 2020, this best worker in France has imagined a Tatin-style cake. Composed of an almond cream puff pastry, pumpkin seeds, flax seeds and oat flakes, it has the particularity of being baked upside down! Melt-in-the-mouth and crispy as you wish!

You want more? Then don't hesitate to move away from the 13th arrondissement to discover the creations of great chefs: François Daubinet for Fauchon, Christophe Michalak, Guy Krenzer for Lenôtre and many others.

Finally, don't forget that some wonders can be found just around the corner, in a discreet neighborhood bakery... Keep your eyes open and investigate!
