August 13th is National Filet Mignon Day

National Filet Mignon Day is observed annually on August 13th. Usually from a steer or heifer, a filet mignon is a steak cut of beef taken from the smaller end of the tenderloin of the beef carcass.

-Filet mignon is French for “cute fillet” or “dainty fillet”.
-In French, filet mignon may be called “filet de boeuf”, which translates to beef fillet in English.
-When found on a French menu, filet mignon may also refer to pork rather than beef.
-The tenderloin from which the filet mignon comes from, is the most tender cut of beef and is also considered the most desirable and therefore the most expensive.
-Famous author O. Henry coined the term filet mignon in his book, The Four Million in 1906.

Filet mignon is commonly cut into 1 inch to 2 inch thick portions, grilled and then served as is. When found in grocery stores, filet mignon is already cut into bacon wrapped portions. The usual method for cooking the filet mignon is to cook it on high heat by either grilling, pan frying, broiling or roasting. Restaurants may sometimes prepare the fillets served in a cognac cream sauce, au poivre with peppercorns or in a red wine reduction.

Due to the low levels of fat found in the fillets, bacon is often used in cooking. The bacon is wrapped around the fillet and pinned closed with a wooden toothpick. Flavor is added from the bacon and this process keeps the fillet from drying out during the cooking process.

January 22nd is National Blonde Brownie Day,

Today’s holiday celebrates blonde brownies, frequently referred to as blondies. (Blondie: a rich, sweet dessert bar) Blonde brownies are similar to the traditional brownies know to all, minus the cocoa. In place of the cocoa, they are based on brown sugar, therefore still satisfying your sweet tooth!

Most people like to add white chocolate or chocolate chips to their blonde brownies or other things like nuts, toffee or butterscotch. Blonde brownies are usually prepared unfrosted as the brown sugar flavor tends to be sweet enough. These blondies are sometimes served in sundaes, often topped with caramel sauce.

January 21st is National New England Clam Chowder Day,

It’s New England Clam Chowder Day! Chowders originated in fishing villages on the coast of France in the 16th century. Back then any kind of fish chowder was considered a poor man’s dish. Most recipes called for salt pork and biscuits, which were both part of a standard sailor’s ration. Today, we’ve substituted the biscuits (also known as hardtack) for salty crackers!

There are many different varieties of clam chowder including New England, Manhattan, Rhode Island, Down East, and Outer Banks. New England clam chowder is made with milk or cream, and the use of tomatoes is frowned upon. In fact, in 1939 the state of Maine made it illegal to put tomatoes in clam chowder!

Celebrate this great culinary tradition and enjoy a bowl of delicious chowder in honor of New England Clam Chowder Day!

January 20th is National Cheese Lovers Day,

Today is National Cheese Lover’s Day! Did you know that the average American consumes about 31 pounds of cheese each year? That may seem like a lot, but for the average French person it’s 50 pounds!

There are more than 900 known cheeses in the world, and they can all be classified by texture. Here are the primary classifications and some examples: fresh cheese (ricotta); soft cheese (feta); semi-soft cheese (Fontina); semi-hard cheese (Gouda); hard cheese (Cheddar); double or triple crème cheese (Brillat-Savarin); blue cheese (Gorgonzola); washed rind cheese (Limburger); and bloomy rind cheese (Brie).

People have been making cheese for at least 8,000 years, so the cheeses we enjoy today are all relatively young by comparison. Take Emmental (also known as Swiss cheese), for example. It’s only been around since the first century BC!

Visit your local cheesemonger and pick up your favorite kind of artisan cheese or cook a cheesy dish for dinner tonight in honor of National Cheese Lover’s Day!

January 17th is National Hot Buttered Rum Day

Today is Hot-Buttered Rum Day! Hot-buttered rum is a warm alcoholic beverage flavored with butter, salt, cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg, and cloves. These ingredients form a batter that is then mixed with rich, dark rum.

Mulled wines and other “toddies” originated in Europe, but hot-buttered rum is an American innovation. During the colonial period, merchants began importing molasses (the basis for rum) from Jamaica. The first rum distillery opened in the 1660s and it wasn’t long before the colonists began mixing the alcohol with spices to create a warm winter refreshment.

Try making a homemade batch for your friends to celebrate Hot-Buttered Rum Day!

January 16th is National Fig Newton Day

A Nabisco trademarked version of the fig roll, Newtons are a pastry filled with fig paste. Fig Newton’s have an unusual shape that is a characteristic which has been adopted by many competitors including generic fig bars.

It was up until the 19th century that many physicians believed that most illnesses were related to digestion problems and they recommended a daily intake of biscuits and fruit. The ideal solution to this advice was fig rolls, which remained a locally produced and handmade product.

In 1891, Philadelphia baker and fig-lover, Charles Roser, invented and patented a machine which inserted fig paste into a thick pastry dough. Roser’s recipe was then purchased by Cambridgeport, Massachusetts-based Kennedy Biscuit Company and mass production began. In 1891, The first Fig Newtons were baked at the F.A. Kennedy Steam Bakery. The name for the product “Newton” was chosen after the town of Newton, Massachusetts.

After recently becoming associated, the Kennedy Biscuit Company and the New York Biscuit company merged to form Nabisco and the fig rolls were then trademarked as “Fig Newtons”.

January 15th is National Strawberry Ice Cream Day

Strawberry ice cream is made by blending either strawberries or strawberry flavoring with eggs, cream, vanilla and sugar. Food coloring is often used to give it the pink or light red hue.

Dating back to at least 1813, strawberry ice cream was served at the second inauguration of James Madison.

Strawberry ice cream is one of the three flavors in Neapolitan ice cream along with vanilla and chocolate.

Strawberry cheesecake ice cream and strawberry ripple ice cream are variations of today’s feature.

January 14th is National Hot Pastrami Day,

Pastrami is a popular delicatessen meat usually made from beef, and sometimes from pork, mutton or turkey. The raw meat is brined, partially dried, seasoned with various herbs and spices, then smoked and steamed. In the United States, although beef plate is the traditional cut of meat for making pastrami, it is now common to see it made from beef brisket, beef round, and turkey. Like corned beef, pastrami was originally created as a way to preserve meat before modern refrigeration.

The word pastrami was borrowed from the Turkish "pastırma", though the dishes themselves have diverged. Some sources claim an etymology from Romanian a păstra, "to preserve."

The Romanian specialty was introduced to the United States in a wave of Romanian Jewish immigration from Bessarabia and Romania in the second half of the 19th century. Early references in English used the spelling "pastrama", closer to the Romanian original. The modified "pastrami" spelling was probably introduced in imitation of the Italian salami.

New York's Sussman Volk is generally credited with producing the first pastrami sandwich in 1887. Volk, a kosher butcher, claimed he got the recipe from a Romanian friend in exchange for storing the friend's luggage while the friend returned to Romania. According to his descendant, Patricia Volk, Volk prepared pastrami according to the recipe and served it on sandwiches out of his butcher shop. The sandwich was so popular that Volk converted the butcher shop into a restaurant to sell pastrami sandwiches.

Romanian Jews emigrated to New York as early as 1872. Among Jewish Romanians, goose breasts were commonly made into pastrami because they were inexpensive. Beef navels were cheaper than goose meat in America, so the Romanian Jews in America adapted their recipe and began to make the cheaper beef pastrami.

Traditional New York pastrami is made from the navel end of the brisket. It is cured in brine, coated with a mix of spices such as garlic, coriander, black pepper, paprika, cloves, allspice, and mustard seed, and then smoked. Finally, the meat is steamed until the connective tissues within the meat break down into gelatin.

In North America, pastrami is typically sliced and served hot on rye bread, a classic New York deli sandwich (pastrami on rye), sometimes accompanied by coleslaw and Russian dressing. Pastrami and coleslaw are also combined in a Rachel sandwich, a variation of the popular Reuben sandwich that traditionally uses corned beef and sauerkraut.

So hit up your favorite Delicatessen and have some HOT PASTRAMI today I certainly will!!!!!
