Title: Foodimentary: Celebrating 365 Food Holidays with Classic Recipes
Author: John-Bryan Hopkins
Published: January 2, 2018, Wellfleet Press
No. of Pages: 352
Cover Price: $28.00 Hardcover



Did you know that September 18th is National Cheeseburger Day? Or that November 2nd is Deviled Egg Day? The brains behind Foodimentary.com, John-Bryan Hopkins, has now compiled a cookbook with information and recipes from his popular website. Foodimentary: Celebrating 365 Food Holidays with Classic Recipes. This fun book, which is not only food trivia at its best, but also plenty of nostalgia for those of us who have followed food trends over the years, has an actual US holiday listed for each day of the year, as well as dozens of National monthly celebrations. The book is well-written and has enough fascinating facts about food that you’ll find yourself curling up in a corner and reading for hours.

Anyone who is searching for a holiday to celebrate will refer to this delightful book often; it not only includes daily holidays (i.e., National Taco Day on October 4th and Tater Tot Day on February 2nd) , but also monthly celebrations such as National Chicken Month in September and National Frozen Food Month in March.

There are dozens of recipes included, and most are simple enough for even inexperienced cooks. They are just right for the celebrations outlined in the book, and many are mouthwatering. Unfortunately, there are no photographs of the finished recipes, which is the only real negative aspect to this cookbook, but there are some cute illustrations. The book does include old photos that bring back a sense of nostalgia for the foods that have been immortalized in special celebration days.

This is the book for every foodie on the planet. Most of us want an excuse to cook, or at least eat something, in celebration mode every day, and this delightful book gives us the opportunity. Foodimentary: Celebrating 365 Food Holidays with Classic Recipes is great for gifts, and almost everyone will find it an extremely enjoyable read.

Special thanks to NetGalley for supplying a review copy of this book.
