And just like that 2020 is here! To kick off the year FSACCI invites you to our first networking event in Cape Town of the year…. The Galette des Rois/ Kings’s cake to welcome you Back to Work.

This is perfect opportunity to reconnect after the festive season and to network with the French South African Business community.

Feast on the famous Galette and enjoy a glass of bubbly with members of the network and the FSACCI team.

La "Galette des Rois" in a nutshell

Sharing the 'Galette des rois' was initially a tradition to celebrate the Epiphany, a Christian feast day.
Now more largely spread in the French culture, it is an opportunity to meet and share time (and the cake) with family, friends and colleagues in January.

According to the tradition, the cake must be divided so that each guests gets a slice. A fève (charm) in a shape of a figurine is hidden in the cake. The lucky one who gets the figurine becomes the king or the queen of the day, and he/she is given a golden or silver couronne (crown).
