Happy New Year!

Remembering to write 2015 on everything reminds us that we have a fresh new year ahead of us. We wish one and all the best as we embark on the adventures of a new year. From all of us at Tall Grass Prairie Bread Company, Grass Roots Prairie Kitchen and Baba's Tall Grass Pantry, we hope the new year is a good one for you.

Special for the new year at Tall Grass

King’s Cake
Our January special features a tradition of the Middle Ages, baking a ‘treasure’ into this cake to reward its finder as King/Queen for the day.

The Three Kings are said to have presented their gifts to Jesus in January, on the Epiphany. In celebration of this since the Middle Ages, French people have made Galettes des Rois or King's Cake.

In the north of France, it's a round cake with an almond/butter filling called frangipane. Hidden inside the King's Cake is a small trinket called a fève. Whoever finds the fève is given a crown and gets to be King or Queen for the day!

At Tall Grass, we bake a single cooked bean into the cake. Find the bean and you can wear the golden paper crown, which is included with each cake. The Tall Grass King's Cakes are available until the end of January.
