We celebrated Epiphany in many ways today. Valerie made shortbread and truffle star biscuits for after Mass.
Kings’ Cake, or in French Galette des Rois consists basically of pastry and frangipane. It was delicious and Yvonne’s extra ingredient of West Indian rum was the magic touch! Bolo rei, from Portugal, with a touch of Italian panetone, was especially delicious when dipped in coffee – or, on Sunday night, red wine.
Old and new friends celebrated the Epiphany in characteristic Chrysostom’s style – beautiful worship, cake, and “laughter and good red wine.”
