Food Holidays: July

Beyond Independence Day Barbecues, There’s A National Food Holiday Every Day!

When you celebrate Independence Day, be thankful for this great country that welcomes people from every land on earth—who come bringing their culinary heritage. That’s what has made the United States the most exciting place to learn world cuisines. Among all our national food holidays, July celebrates food holidays that are as American as apple pie (except apple pie is a European invention, and it’s Apple Turnover Day that gets celebrated this month). Pick your food holiday and plan a celebration!



On National Pecan Pie Day, July 12, you can bake a delicious pecan pie in minutes with Pecan Pie-In-A-Jar from the Great San Saba River Pecan Company (read the review). Photo courtesy Good Eggs.

There are no more magnificent cheesecakes than those from Elegant Cheesecakes.  They make you wish that National Cheesecake Day was celebrated more often than every July 30th. Everything you see here is edible (except the plate and forks). The ribbon is white chocolate.

*Not really a food holiday; it’s a play on “Don’t put all your eggs in one basket.” The holiday advises people to think against concentrating all of their efforts/hopes into one venture.

**More bagel holidays:
National Bagel Day is January 15th. National Bagels & Lox Day is February 9th. National Bagelfest Day is July 26th.

†National Madiera Day actually was established to mark the date that Portugal granted independence to the island of Madeira. However, we in food circles also use it to celebrate the wine from the island.
