Culinarians Day

Thursday, July 25, 2013

emoticon Culinarians Day emoticon

When : July 25th

Culinarians Day is a special day for anyone who cooks. That means just about everyone of us get to celebrate this day. You don't have to be a chef, or a graduate of a culinary institute to celebrate this delicious day. You simply have to cook, and to enjoy the results.

There's national concern over growing obesity in America. Recognizing this fact, one would think that this is a huge holiday. However, we found this to be one of the least known holidays in the country..... up to now. Not anymore! We have documented it so all can enjoy Culinarians Day this year, and in future years.

Now get into your kitchen and celebrate Culinarians Day. Cook up a storm. BTW: What time should I arrive to eat!? emoticon

The Origin of Culinarians Day:
Our research did not find the creator, or the origin of this day. We found no factual documentation on this day, and only sparse awareness of its existence.

  I'd rather celebrate someone else's Culinarian ability. My cooking skills are mediocre.

thanks for the tidbits from the "This Day in History" section.
