Next Up: Three Kings Day & Rosca de Reyes
Posted: Apr 22 2014BBrrrrr.Ok. NOW it’s cold. It finally got cold outside. A friend called from Texas and said it was 26 degrees. Flash forward to my phone beeping 5 minutes later with a picture of my friend Rob’s plane getting de-iced at DFW.
So in part to warm up cause it’s COLD, and also – It’s Three Kings Day next week “Dia de Reyes”. Here’s a nice recipe for some awesome Rosca de Reyes. Many Hispanics/Latinos in other countries eat Rosca de Reyes to celebrate Three Kings Day. It’s a sweet bread in which typically a toy or fava bean is baked into the bread. Whoever manages to get the piece of the bread with the treat inside is the “king” or “queen” for the meal – or you may also be tasked to have a party on February 2nd.
Here’s a link to one of our favorite recipes for Rosca de Reyes by King Arthur’s flour. Just be prepared, as this will take a little while to prepare!
