National Bouillabaisse Day
When : Always December 14
I think that you will agree with me that this is a somewhat fishy day. It's National Bouillabaisse Day, a day to celebrate a tasty Mediterranean fish stew or soup.
Bouillabaisse is believed to have originated in Marseilles, France. It is extremely popular all around the Mediterranean, and is a specialty in ports across the region.
Bouillabaisse is a fish stew or soup. All agree the fish should be white fillets. Recipes call for variety of fish, including cod, snapper, flounder, halibut, sea bass, monk fish, and more.
Celebrate National Bouillabaisse Day with a cup or bowl or this tasty stew.
Origin of National Bouillabaisse Day:
It appears a little fishy that we found no factual information about this special day. Nor, did we catch or net the creator.......yet. We will continue to troll and fish the internet for the originator and more information.
There was some reference to this as a "National Day". Most food related holidays are called "National". However, we found no congressional records or presidential proclamation.
