Rosca de reyes from the Chastain
Pastry chef Christian Castillo of the Chastain went all-out with getaway baking this calendar yr. There was chocolate babka for Hanukkah, and sandwich cookies for Christmas. Coming earlier than lengthy is cranberry orange bread for breakfast, and rosca de reyes for Epiphany, the Jan. 6 celebration of the arrival of the three kings. We had been fortunate enough to attempt a preview loaf. This olive-oil brioche ring is garnished with tender slices of candied orange, slivered almonds and chunks of rock sugar. And, as if that weren’t enough, it’s filled with pastry cream, an ideal indulgence for the commencing of the brand new yr. We additionally wager it’s a foreshadowing of what Castillo will want up for Mardi Gras.Law
