Other foods to honor:


Daily Celebrations:

Shrimp & Remoulade Dip

May 10 is National Shrimp Day. We served these tasty crustaceans with LuLu’s Saffron Aioli. Photo by Ryan Pike.



* May 5th is National Hoagie Day. November 4th is National Submarine Sandwich Day. And someone decided that we needed a National Eat A Hoagie Day on September 14th and Submarine-Hoagie-Grinder Day on October 9th.

†There’s National Blondie Day on January 22nd. Blondie is another name for Butterscotch Blondie. Here’s the scoop.


‡Some sources list March 22 as National Coq Au Vin Day. It may be a locally declared holiday rather than national. We’ve  double-listed it in March.


**May is National Hamburger Month. The second week in May is National Hamburger Week. May 28th is National Hamburger Day.

  French Macarons
End the month by celebrating National Macaroon Day. These lovelies are the French version, macarons, from Mad Mac Macarons, a NIBBLE Top Pick Of The Week.

There are two types of truffles. The original is the highly expensive fungus related to the mushroom. Chocolate truffles are named after them.


***This holiday celebrates the artisan cheeses made by American cheesemakers, not the processed product called American cheese.  It was formerly held in October, but was changed to align with the arrival of spring cheeses.


****International Whiskey Day is March 27th.

†††World Tuna Day was established to promote more sustainable fishing practices.


†††National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day is August 4th.
