“The King Cake is a sacred confection eaten between Epiphany and Mardi Gras. In different parts of the world. In the US, a little plastic baby that represents Jesus is hidden inside the cake, and whoever gets the slice with the baby wins. The prize is often the honor of hosting the next King Cake party. So the next time you’re looking to break a tooth on a small, plastic Jesus, here is a recipe for you. ”

“Traditionally semlor—also called fastlagsbullar or fettisbullar—were eaten on Fat Tuesday, the last chance for a little culinary indulgence before Lent. Nowadays, this iconic Swedish pastry is served from the early days of January onwards and you’ll find them in every bakery window and on every café menu in the months and days leading up to Fat Tuesday.”
Puffy Pillow Beignets
“A Japanese inspired yeast donut that incorporates the use of tapioca flour to give these beignet an unique chewiness. And a tiny bit of baking powder creates a hollow center, ready to be filled with your wildest imaginations.”
Pork Boudin Balls
“These creamy-textured pork balls are super simple to make and they’re exceptionally flavorful. The blending of the meat and rice gives them a light-as-air texture which is quite irresistible.”
Alton Brown’s Shrimp Gumbo
” A hands-off method for a rich, dark gumbo roux, so you can celebrate Mardi Gras away from the stove. While I recommend following the recipe as written — and it’s well worth the trouble of finding head-on shrimp and filé powder for what might be the most soul-stirring gumbo you’ve tasted — the most important lesson to take away here is that any gumbo is more within reach when you bake your roux.”
