Mardi Gras Food, Recipes, Drinks, Cake


Mardi Gras translate as “fat Tuesday” in French. What’s so fat about Fat Tuesday? Well, after Fat Tuesday comes Ash Wednesday, aka the first day of Lent. So Fat Tuesday’s your last chance to party hearty and indulge in rich food and drink before you give it all up for Lent.


For serious party people in New Orleans, Mardi Gras means more than just one wild night. It’s a whole “carnival” season that starts 12 nights after Christmas (aptly named Twelfth Night) and goes all the way to midnight on Fat Tuesday. Throughout the weeks of carnival season, Mardi Gras revelers dress up in masked costumes and take to the streets with food, drink, music, and parades. And the closer it gets to Lent, the wilder the parties get.

Today, the tradition continues as people all over the world gather for festive Twelfth Night celebrations. A popular custom was and still is the baking of a special cake in honor of the three kings, called "A King's Cake."
