Ode to King Cake
Above: 1) The new Oxford American Best of the South issue. Subscribers and public libraries have it already, as might your better booksellers. Or get it here. In it, you will find 2) an "Ode to King Cake" by yours truly, about my favorite thing in the world, the king cakes at Calandro's. I particularly like their 3) Mississippi Mud king cake: "They should put the Marquis de Sade in this one instead of baby Jesus." Enjoy!
