National Truffle Day
May 2 all-day

National Truffle Day celebrates the sweet treat created in France in the late 1800’s with competing origin stories. It is said that N. Petruccelli of Chambery, France invented the truffle in December 1895. Others claim the truffle was created by accident when an apprentice to French baker Georges Auguste Escoffier poured hot cream into a bowl of chocolates. When the ingredients cooled, balls were rolled from the mixture and covered in confectioners sugar. It is also believed that Frenchman Louis Defour created truffles as a Christmas treat around the same time, and that his relative Antoine Dufour brought them to international attention when he opened a shop in London and produced and sold truffles there.

Regardless of how they came about, today truffles are a holiday season favorite enjoyed every day around the world.

National Truffle Day is celebrated annually on May 2nd.

National Apple Pie Day

National Apple Pie Day celebrates one of America’s favorite and most versatile combinations of fruit, pastry and so much more! Apple pie may be an American favorite, but the first known recipes for apple pie appeared more than 900 years ago in England. Regardless, the terms “for mom and apple pie” and “as American as mom and apple pie” were commly expressed by soldiers in World War II when asked why they joined the military. A car company mentioned applie pie in an advertising slogan that some may remember – “Baseball, hot dogs, apple pie, and Chevrolet.”

Whether you like your pie served hot out of the oven, cooled on the window sill, or topped with whipped cream or ice cream, enjoy a slice (or two) of apple pie today.

National Apple Pie Day is celebrated annually on May 13th.

Mismosa recipes date back to the 1920’s and can vary greatly. Depending on your mood, taste, or selection of foods served alongside, the proportions of wine/orange juice can vary. Some also prefer a fresh strawberry or other tangy fruit as a garnish.
