January Food Holidays

Happy New Year! The Holidays (Food Holidays, That Is) Are Just Beginning!


Click here to return to the main page of this article.


A whole new year of food holidays means more than 365 days of different food festivities. Each month has foods with entire dedicating feasting months, plus foods with special feasting weeks.

Other exciting events: National Pizza Week the second week of the month, National Meat Week the fourth week, and National Irish Coffee Week, also the fourth week. And, if you didn’t have enough pale gold Champagne on December 31, start the New Year with something bright and colorful:

  Goat Cheese Crottins From Vermont Creamery Discover some new cheeses on January 20th, National Cheese Lovers Day. These goat cheese crottins are from one of our favorite cheese makers, Vermont Creamery. Another of our favorite cheeses is Cowgirl Creamery’s Red Hawk. Both are NIBBLE Top Picks Of The Week.
  German Chocolate Cake Recipe

‡January 21st is National New England Clam Chowder Day, a recipe with a cream base. Since there is no official Manhattan Clam Chowder Day (a tomato base), consider 2/25, the generic National Clam Chowder Day, a stand-in.


May 9th is National Butterscotch Brownie Day, one of the names for a blondie. Here’s the scoop.
