In celebration: what seems to be the best-worded king cake recipe on the Internet, excerpted from the original 1901 version of the Picayune’s Creole Cookbook.

As an aside — the level of culinary knowledge/fortitude assumed in this recipe is fascinating, especially when compared to similar recipes from now.

As another aside, yes, every Tuesday at FN is essentially Fat Tuesday, but I’ll thank you not to mention that.
