The holiday season might be coming to a close, but not before one final celebration! El Día de los Reyes or Three Kings Day on January 6. This Latin American holiday commemorates when the Three Wise Men arrived in Bethlehem bearing gifts for Baby Jesus.
MasterChef Season Six winner Claudia Sandoval recently published a cookbook featuring her family’s traditional Mexican recipes.
“Our family has celebrated Three Kings Day like most Mexican families,” said Claudia. “When we were children, we would leave our shoes out for the Three Kings to leave us a present.
The following morning on Jan. 6, we would awake to a small gift beside our shoe.
Later that evening we would enjoy a warm, freshly baked Rosca de Reyes (Kings Wreath), which is bread baked with jewel-toned fruits and jellies reminiscent of the many jewels worn by the Three Kings!”
To help get us in the holiday spirit, Claudia shared three of her favorite traditional recipes—each with her own delicious twist!
