Food Holidays

I have always loved the idea of “food holidays.”  You know, those seemingly random days declared in honor of some of your favorite foods, recipes and iconic dishes.  That’s why I was so excited when I came across this cookbook, “Food Fest 365” by Yvan Lemoine. You might remember him from this season of Food Network Star!

Yvan wrote this book back in 2010 and it is a gem!  I love to post about Food Holidays on the Better Recipes Facebook and Twitter pages, and this will be a great resource.  I even set up a “Food Holidays” board on my my Pinterest page!  If one of those days ever seems totally random, rest assured that it is real!

In the book Yvan says, “Food holidays are as valid as Mother’s Day, Valentine’s Day or Cinco de Mayo.  They come about as the result of a group petitioning the government to commemorate a particular food on a particular day.  The president then approves or denies them.  From there, it’s up to us to promote it and celebrate it!”
