National Food Holidays

Did you know there’s a food holiday assigned to every day of the year, and each month too? One day I’ll get the gumption to try following each day’s holiday and cook whatever it is every day for a whole year. That’s right, all 365 days. This kind of reminds me of the movie Julie & Julia, where the main characater (Julie) cooks her way through Julia Childs’ cookbook “Mastering the Art of French Cooking,” in the course of a year – and blogs her way through it. It’s a favorite movie of mine!

Until then, I’ll just continue to showcase the food holidays, and bloggers on the interwebs that have awesome recipes that fit within the theme. I share them daily over on my Facebook page, and also curate each month’s list here on the blog.

Bon appétit!
