JANUARY 6, 2015
NEW ORLEANS, LA – Domenica will be offering fresh King Cakes from January 7th until Fat Tuesday (February 17th), available for purchase at www.domenicarestaurant.com.
Made fresh daily by pastry chef Lisa White, these decadent King Cakes are generously filled with salted caramel, fresh bananas, roasted pecans, mascarpone cheese, caramello and covered in a praline glaze touched with real gold. One cake serves approximately 14 people. A fava bean is used in place of the hidden baby, a tradition that dates back to the Roman Empire. Each cake costs $45, and one dollar of each purchase will go to The John Besh Foundation.
Orders must be placed 24 hours in advance by visiting the website or calling Domenica at 504-648-6020. Orders can be placed beginning January 6th. King Cake orders may be picked up at Domenica or uptown at PIZZA domenica.
