HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. -- The latest addition to Hilton Head’s culinary scene, Hilton Head Social Bakery, will host its official ribbon cutting ceremony Friday, January 6 at 10 a.m. at 17 Harbourside Lane 1G in Shelter Cove Harbour and Marina. In celebration, the new bakery will be preparing the traditional “King’s Cake” for customers, a French tradition in recognition of the Christian holiday Epiphany, January 6, that honors the Magi who came to visit the baby Jesus.
A King’s Cake is a French traditional puff pastry made with frangipane, or almond cream. Hilton Head Social Bakery will be preparing this special order cake, which comes with a paper crown from France and a hidden figurine inside. Traditionally, the person who finds the “fève” in their piece of cake is crowned King or Queen. Orders for the King’s Cake will be accepted through January 5, 2017.
Run by Chef Philippe Feret, who moved to Hilton Head Island in 2016 after running his own restaurant on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, the bakery offers American-style baked goods with a French flair. Everything is made on site with TVs inside showing the baked goods being made live in the kitchen. The interior features decor from a disassembled a barn from the mid-1800s in upstate New York and outdoor seating offers views of Broad Creek. Items available include croissants, tarts, eclairs, turnovers, crepes, breads and more.
Hilton Head Social Bakery joins a variety of high-end restaurants at Shelter Cove Harbour many serving international dishes, including San Miguel’s Mexican Cafe, Mediterranean Harbour Bar & Grille, ELA’s Blu Water Grille, Bistro 17 serving French cuisine, Bucci’s Italian Cuisine and Scott’s Fish Market.
