Valentine’s cake – The divine quiproquo: when Saint-Honoré met Saint-Valentin

Saint-Honoré, the patron saint of pâtissiers, was wandering around in the sky, marveling at the clouds of caramel and stars made of powdered sugar, when he spotted Saint-Valentin flirting with angels.

Saint-Honoré had sparkling eyes and came up to him with his characteristic French accent: “Well, hello Saint-Valentin! What are you doing here and handing out love arrows?”

Saint-Valentin was a little surprised and replied with a mischievous smile: “Well, I’m sowing love, of course! After all, it is Valentine’s Day.”

Saint-Honoré, showing off his chef’s hat, exclaimed: “Ah, I see! I myself hand out delicious éclairs and heavenly cakes. You could say that I am the patron saint of sweet delights!”

The two saints burst out laughing when they realized the divine misunderstanding. They then decided to combine their talents to create the ultimate Valentine’s Day dessert: a heart-shaped St-Honoré, garnished with delicate raspberry flavors.

A unique creation by our Chef Pâtissier Julien that you can enjoy as a couple or with the family.
A limited edition that you should reserve immediately.

Galette des Rois Königskuchen dreikönig frangipane king's cake

The Galette des Rois

Who will be King or Queen on January 6th? 

Epiphany is a Christian feast: in the Catholic religion, it celebrates the Messiah who came and became incarnate in the world, receiving the visit and homage of the three Magi; in the Orthodox religion, Epiphany (or Theophany) celebrates the manifestation to the world of Jesus of Nazareth as Christ and Son of God through his baptism. It takes place on January 6.

Various customs are observed on this occasion. In France, Switzerland and Belgium, since the Middle Ages, a “galette des rois” or a “gâteau des rois”, pastries containing a bean, are shared on this day; the person who finds the bean in his or her portion is designated “king” or “queen”.

But where does this custom come from?

The galette des rois originated in the Roman Saturnalia celebrations, during which the Romans designated a slave as “king for a day”. During a banquet at the heart of each large familia, the Romans used the bean from a cake to draw lots for the “Saturnalicius princeps” (prince of Saturnalia). The “king for a day” has the power to fulfill all his desires during the day (such as giving orders to his master) before returning to his servile life. To ensure the random distribution of galette slices, it is customary for the youngest member of the family to stand under the table and name the recipient of each new slice.

In Switzerland, the galette des rois is made with brioche pastry. At Juliette, this iconic cake is made with puff pastry filled with almond frangipane cream.

Don’t forget to reserve your frangipane galette des rois now! Juliette will be presenting the frangipane galette des rois throughout January.

The bûche de Noël

Juliette’s Yule log. 

Do you know where the tradition of the Yule log comes from? Originally, the Yule log was a huge log that was burned in the hearth on Christmas Eve. Rolled sponge cake filled with buttercream replaced this tradition in the 20th century.

This year, our pastry chef Julien has given in to the temptation of a chocolate-pear combination with a touch of caramel. Available from November 27th, the “bûche de Noël” will be the centerpiece of your Christmas celebrations.

We recommend pre-ordering in our online store: Yule log.

Ciao! I am Ilaria

Her name is Ilaria

She hails from the Venice region and joined Julien Mallé’s pastry team at the beginning of September.

From an early age, she worked in the kitchen alongside her mother, making cakes. Then she developed her passion by watching online videos and TV shows, reading magazines and testing recipes at home.

When she’s not baking, she likes to travel and look at fashion images.

What she loves about Switzerland: its multilingualism, nature and quality of life.

What she dreads: the coming sub-zero temperatures… But then she’ll be able to take refuge in the warmth of the pastry lab.
