A dessert with many names, baked and shared around the world, the King Cake is most recognized in the U.S. for its relationship with Mardi Gras. This week on a bonus episode of Meat and Three, we learn more about its origins, and treat ourselves to the decadent King Cake, not once, but twice.

The HRN team overnights one directly from Randazzo in New Orleans and then learns how to make our own with Jake Cohen in The FeedFeed Test Kitchen. Lastly we hear from Chef John Caluda who has been making King Cakes since the '90s.
