Yes, there is such a thing as national cookie day. How will you celebrate this year?

National Gazpacho Day (12/6) 

Who knew there was a whole day devoted to gazpacho? Gazpacho is a Spanish-style soup primarily made from tomatoes and some other vegetables that is served cold. My dear friend and colleague, Ellie Krieger, has a wonderful recipe for gazpacho that I’d like to share with you here – https://www.elliekrieger.com/recipe/go-to-gazpacho-2/. 

National Brownie Day (12/8)

Americans loves brownies. Be sure to celebrate on this day in December. Whether you make brownies from scratch or from a box, be sure to sit down and enjoy this chocolatey, gooey, indulgent treat with your loved ones.

National Cocoa Day (12/13) 

So, did you know that there is technically a difference between hot cocoa and hot chocolate?  

Hot cocoa is usually made from cocoa powder in combination with sugar and milk which makes it sweet and lighter in texture and consistency. It can often contain added flavors like vanilla or cinnamon as well.  

On the other hand, hot chocolate is simply melted chocolate in beverage form. True hot chocolate is much denser and richer than its powdery alternative. Use good quality milk or dark chocolate and combine it with milk for a rich, decadent warm beverage this holiday season.  

Whichever you prefer, be sure to enjoy a cup of hot chocolate or hot cocoa on the 13th

Christmas Day (12/25) 

Asking about family traditions around the holidays is always a great way to get people talking. Find out more about recipes that have been passed down from generation to generation, where do folk’s travel to for the holidays, and what is their favorite holiday memory?

Try to get your online communities to open up and share their stories with you as they draw on their memories from the holiday season. Food memories are always a great place to start! 

National Champagne Day (12/31) 

There isn’t much to say here about this one, other than it ties directly into the holiday below which is New Year’s Eve! What better way to celebrate and ring in the New Year than with family, friends, and a glass of bubbly?! 

New Year’s Eve (12/31) 

The New Year always bring on a feeling of a new, fresh beginning. A time when we can hit the reset button and start over. For many, this means setting new goals for the New Year as it relates to their personal life and/or their professional life. It’s a time when we can reflect on the past year and identify our wins and our struggles, the opportunities and the challenges, and learn from it all. Cheers to 2023!
