For Epiphany 2022, The French Bastards teamed up with pastry chef François Daubinet to create a tasty and never before seen Epiphany Cake 2022.

For their third Epiphany CakeThe French Bastards baker Julien Abourmad treats himself to a collaboration with a guest: pastry chef François Daubinet! Together, they co-created a very original Epiphany Cake 2022: the Pain des Rois.

Long-time friends, the two chefs have been looking for the perfect occasion to offer a four-hand creation. They wanted to gather their own universes: on one hand, Julien's "food porn" spirit, on the other hand, François's technicity.

This creation, that looks like a loaf of bread, is yet a very scrumptious Epiphany Cake! To create this trompe-l'oeil, François and Julien have come up with an organic rye flour-based briochewhole wheat flour and yeast, sprinkled with confectioner's sugar!

This Epiphany Cake 2022 holds almond creamroasted almond powder and chopped whole almonds. And for a cheeky twist, some bread praline is added after the baking. A melting surprise awaits!

A cake as tasty as beautiful to find at The French Bastards on January 8, 9, 15 and 16, 2022 for €50 the cake serving 8 people.
