Germaine’s favorite day
One of Germaine’s favorite days of the year was January sixth, 12th night from Christmas.
Carnival commences on Twelfth Night, January 6th, which ushers in a hectic social season of parties, balls and parades. Every year, Germaine celebrated by wearing one of many Mardi Gras gowns to dinner on that evening. To honor the season she introduced a old fashioned, rich dish: Cornish Game Hen Twelfth Night, which is still served at Arnaud’s on January sixth.
