<<28th December 2021- Hong Kong>> Two Michelin-starred ÉCRITURE rings in the much-anticipated New Year of 2021 by bringing back its crowd-favourite French pastry – Galette des Rois, a traditional French dessert that is typically enjoyed during the first week of the New Year in Europe. At Écriture, Chef Maxime Gilbert and local-born Patissier Cyrus Yan have come up with their own interpretation of Galette des Rois, or “King’s Cake”.
Inspired by childhood memories growing up in France, Ecriture’s Galette des Rois is a homemade puff pastry filled with almond cream, flavoured with rum and orange blossom essence. The annual tradition of eating Galette des Rois is believed to date back to the 14th century and continues to this day in France as a celebration of the Christian festival, the Epiphany.

Located on the penthouse floor of Hong Kong’s new cultural hotspot H Queen’s, Hong Kong hospitality group Le Comptoir presents ÉCRITURE, a space in which French cuisine is elevated to new heights by uniting it with exceptional Japanese produce to explore the endless possibilities that occur when Western craftsmanship meets Eastern philosophies. The East and the West have long held a mutual fascination and respect for one another, and at ÉCRITURE this comes together not only on the plate, but also in the effortlessly understated interiors. The restaurant takes its name from a series of paintings by Korean artist Park Seo-Bo – a work from which hangs in the private dining room, injecting a bold splash of red into a design scheme that celebrates the untold harmony found in contrasts and oppositions.
