The feast of the epiphany seems to be celebrated in most Latin countries, and hardly at all anywhere else. I love the idea of the ceremony to celebrate the arrival of the three kings. Although they did not bring almonds, they do seem to be in all the epiphany cakes I’ve ever eaten – the white chocolate was my idea.



Butter a fairly deep, round loose-bottomed pie tin (4 × 23 cm). Roll out the pastry and use it to line the tin, or simply mould it in with the fingers. Leave to rest in the fridge. Melt the chocolate in an ovenproof bowl in a very low oven (50°C) for 5 minutes. Don’t overheat!
