Mardi Gras is on March 1 this yr, and a single of the celebration’s tastiest traditions is King Cake — but you really don’t want to journey to New Orleans to enjoy it. La Fillette Bakery, at 4416 East Eighth Avenue, is supplying King Cakes for the full month of February. End in or simply call the store at 303-355-0022 to spot an get.
Safta (3330 Brighton Boulevard at the Supply), the sister restaurant to chef Alon Shaya’s Saba in New Orleans, is presenting a considerably less classic consider on King Cake. The Babka King Cake is swirled with brown sugar cinnamon and homemade pfeffernüsse spice cookies, and topped with salted cinnamon caramel and a pomegranate charm (as an alternative of the conventional child) to cover inside. Pre-get on the net — these are available 1st come, first served.
