We kick off four-part Mardi Gras Madness mini-series with the most iconic and essential of Carnival season treats – the King Cake. Chip talks Matt Haines, the author of The Big Book of King Cake about all things King Cake: what they are, how they continue to evolve, who are the bakers making them, and why the Crescent City rallies around them. Plus, they discuss some of the Great Debates of King Cake. #mardigras #kingcake #neworleans
