Regal festivities are in store at Café Bateel all through January with the introduction of the traditional French Galettes
Providing a warm and sophisticated ambience for guests to enjoy, Café Bateel represents a seamless blend of Mediterranean cuisine with the distinct character ofArabian heritage. Well known for its gourmet products, the brand will be offering the popular French holiday cake, the Galette, during January.
Patrons can immerse themselves in a signature French festive experience, enjoying this flavorful seasonal item, traditionally baked to mark the Epiphany celebrations. The centre of each Galette holds a small toy, and the person finding it in their slice becomes “king” or “queen” for the night and is said to receive good fortune for the year ahead. To continue the festivities, he or she is then expected to buy the cake for the next get-together. Guests will also receive gold crowns to wear as part of the celebrations.
When speaking about this new offering, Chef Jean-Luc Vila, General Manager Corporate Manufacturing & Development, said: “Café Bateel is committed to offering its customers exciting and seasonal experiences on a regular basis. We are proud to celebrate this popular French tradition with a continued uncompromising attitude towards quality. Our freshly baked Galettes are crafted on a daily basis with high grade ingredients to delight even the most hard to please connoisseurs.”
Priced at AED 65, Galettes will be available across all Café Bateel outlets in the UAE from 3-31 January, and will feature in two varieties; Galettes Bordelaise, prepared in a Southern French style brioche and Galettes Des Rois, a Parisian-style puff pastry with almond cream.
