Until the Catholic Church's rules regarding the observance of Lent were made less stringent, it was a time of fasting--one full meal a day, the other two meals added together not equaling the main meal, and abstinence from meat and meat products. A period of feasting preceded the rigors of Lent, perhaps so the faithful would have memories of rich food to tide them over until Easter. Carnival, the name of that pre-Lenten feasting season, derives from the Latin words "to take away meat."

Yes, you can make marshmallows at home. They're much more delicate in flavor than the ones you stick in a campfire, and you can flavor them lightly too. L'Orangerie pastry chef Franck Riffaud serves marshmallows flavored with orange essence for the restaurant's petits fours tray. You can substitute any essence. You can also add food coloring or cut the marshmallows using cookie cutters to make festive shapes.
