Learn more about the bean

Originally from the Middle East, the bean is a vegetable plant cultivated for its seeds, bearing the same name, eaten fresh or dry.

A staple food since Antiquity, this legume was also used as a voting token during the Saturnalia: during these popular Roman festivals, preceding the winter solstice and celebrating the god Saturn, a banquet king was elected.

Subsequently, the tradition was continued with the galette des rois of the Epiphany in which we hid a (real) bean.
