Fat Tuesday, which is the French translation of Mardi Gras, is something of a last hurrah. There’s partying. There’s drinking. And there’s lots of eating.
For those who observe Lent (as well as those who are looking for any excuse to stuff their faces), today represents a big opportunity to indulge. Whether you're going with pancakes or po’ boys, donuts or drinks, there’s only one rule on Fat Tuesday: More is more. And, if possible, make sure King Cake is involved.
Chefs across the country haven taken to Instagram to show the world how they’re celebrating this day of gluttony, and we're feeling the holiday cheer. It's a Mardi Pardi!
Gail Simmons is celebrating from afar with King Cake.
We couldn't get to #NOLA for #mardigras but somehow, as if by magic, Mardi Gras came to us. Thank you @chefsuez and #fombakery! Of course we all went crazy for this magnificent #kingcake. Baby D was mesmerized ????????????????????????????
