Happy National Buttermilk Biscuit Day

In case you don't know, Baton Rouge, Louisiana is home of self-proclaimed "King Biscuit."  Chef Alex Hamman, a baking and pastry instructor at the Louisiana Culinary Institute is something a biscuit aficionado.  He's had biscuit recipes published in magazines, and he takes pride in every pillow of flaky dough that be bakes.  So on National Buttermilk Biscuit Day, which is today, May 14th, 2013, Chef Alex baked up a batch of golden treats at LCI, and I got to eat some!

I can't give away the recipe, nor do I know it.  But I know there is butter, buttermilk, and love.  And layering is key.  So for those of you who haven't had any biscuits today, I'm sorry that you likely won't have any as good as the ones that I got to eat, but you should still find a biscuit tonight.  Tis the season, after all.
