August National Food Holidays Worth Celebrating

August might be peach month, but there are also plenty more foodie days to whet your appetite. Stock up your fridge for White Wine Day (3rd August), India Pale Ale Day (5th August) and International Beer Day (6th August). Satisfy your stomach with Filet Mignon Day (13th August) or enjoy something sweet with Pecan Torte Day (22nd August).

Still hungry? Some of my other favourite food days in August include:

Watermelon Day (3rd August)

Anyone for watermelon? This delicious bright red juicy fruit is perfect on its own sliced or diced as one of your five a day or why not blend it into a refreshing smoothie for a morning pick-me-up.

Watermelon Day 3 August

Mustard Day (7th August)

Are you a mustard fan? For me, it’s all about hot English mustard with my roast beef or a delicious Dijon mustard for a kick. The perfect accompaniment with your roast meats, it’s also a great addition to homemade sauces, cauliflower cheese or spread on cheese and ham sandwiches.

World Bratwurst Day (16th August)

Did someone say sausage? I absolutely love the German Bratwurst sausage, accompanied by homemade red cabbage, pickles, onions and mustard in a crispy roll. You honestly can’t beat it and the best ones of course are in Germany from the stands in the streets.

Sponge Cake Day (23rd August)

Who loves cake? I do, especially sponge cakes like the absolutely delicious and moreish Victoria Sponge. Filled with plenty of strawberry jam and cream, this cake is super easy to bake and is best enjoyed for morning or afternoon tea (or both!).

Toasted Marshmallow Day (30th August)

What could be better than sitting around a camp fire, toasting marshmallows on sticks under a blanket of stars? Gooey marshmallows are definitely a childhood favourite when out camping and best enjoyed when telling stories around a toasty fire, wrapped in warm blankets.
