Who’s Got the Baby?
“Bread Winners” celebrates Mardi Gras with King Cakes and other bakery treats
The king cake has its roots in medieval France and Spain. In colonial Louisiana, Creoles celebrated this time of year with the bal du roi (king’s ball), where they served a fancy cake with a bean placed inside. The person who found the bean in his or her piece of cake became the king or queen of the next ball, creating a series of balls that would culminate with the final grand event on Mardi Gras evening. Over the years, the practice spread beyond Mardi Gras royalty. The person who received the prize — which instead of a bean could be a nut, a coin or even a ring — would be king or queen for the day and in charge of hosting the next party or supplying the next king cake, a tradition that remains today. The most common token used today is a small plastic baby.

Mardi Craw at “The Rustic” this Fat Tuesday
Cajun crawfish boil, live music and more on tap for Mardi Gras, Feb. 9
“Fat Tuesday is a day to let the good times roll, so we’re going to throw a party that will make you glad you didn’t make the trip to New Orleans this year,” said Kyle Noonan, co-owner of FreeRange Concepts, creator of The Rustic. “We’ll be boiling up a ton of crawfish with all the fixins, just like the Cajuns do, and we’ll have plenty of great music and fun activities that everyone will enjoy.”

Indeed, the good times will be rolling on Fat Tuesday, Feb. 9, when Ida Claire offers a Mardi Gras Menu highlighting several dishes true to her Southern roots:
Of course, it wouldn’t be Fat Tuesday without festive cocktails, so you’d better believe Ida Claire will be serving up her hand-crafted Hurricanes ($8) and Hurricane Punch ($24, for 4-5 people). Every guest who orders a Hurricane drink will receive a Mardi Gras feather mask.
Guests will also be encouraged to post photos on Facebook and Instagram with their masks, using a special hashtag for a chance to win a $50 Ida Claire gift card.
