The culinary marathon continues. After Thanksgiving and Christmas, Épiphanie arrives with great pomp on Sunday, January 6 with its traditional galette des rois. Here are some addresses where you can find a King Cake.

The galette des rois will be on display throughout the month of January in the display cases of Atelier Monnier in Brickell. Crafted with frangipane, a tasty blend of almond cream and pastry cream, the dessert is served with a fève and a crown. Each creation feeds 6 to 9 guests ($39.95). Individual servings are also available ($5.95). — 848 Brickell Ave #120, Miami, (305) 456-5015

In order to best excite our taste buds on the occasion of Epiphany, Stéphane Merlat, the pastry chef of the French establishment Maison Valentine, which recently opened its doors in Miami Beach, is giving priority to the traditional frangipane recipe.

Café Crème in North Miami offers galettes made according to the rules of the art, following a recipe of almond cream and not frangipane.

Several sizes are available, serving 4 to 20 people ($18 to $90). — 750 NE 125th St, North Miami, (786) 409-3961

Les Moulins La Fayette bakery in Miami Beach also showcases almond cream galettes to share with 8 guests ($39.95). The establishment also provides a crown and prefers to give the fève separately rather than hide it in the cake for fear of its customers choking. Les Moulins La Fayette – 211 Lincoln Rd, Miami Beach – (786) 773-1400
