Scottish Food and Drink Fortnight

Scottish Food and Drink Fortnight

Scottish Food and Drink Fortnight is celebrated September 6-21 and is a national celebration of all things culinary from across Scotland. The event aims to raise awareness about the quality of local produce in Scotland, and encourage both consumers and retailers to make the best use of all the ingredients available to them from their own region. Farmers’ markets play a big role in the Scottish Food Fortnight and they are used as a platform to discuss the importance and benefits of consuming local produce, especially the implicit health benefits.

Yogi Bear and Boo Boo are famous for stealing picnic baskets. I guarantee that with the tasty recipes this month, they may be along to steal yours as well. Picnics are a great time for family and friends to enjoy fun, sun, and share a meal. Step away from the dinner table, out of the house, and dine with new scenery at every picnic.

Cinco de Mayo is a Mexican holiday full of rich history and Mexican pride. While Cinco de Mayo is merely a date in the Spanish language, it represents a significant event in the history of Mexico. The roots of this observance are actually very complex. This day commemorates the Mexican Army’s astonishing triumph over the French that took place on May 5, 1862.

What You See Is Not Necessarily What You Get

What You See Is Not Necessarily What You Get

Tricks and treats are not only reserved for Halloween, play some tricks on the first day of April, also known as April Fool’s Day. Tricks and pranks on this day range from telling fun white lies that get a person going all the way to complex, well-planned hoaxes that fool the masses. One of the greatest media hoaxes of all times was on April 1, 1947 by the BBC. The media reported on one of its news programs that Switzerland was experiencing a bumper spaghetti harvest that year thanks to favorable weather and the elimination of the spaghetti weevil. They perpetuated the hoax by showing staged video footage showing happy peasants plucking strands of pasta from tall trees. The footage and story were so convincing that many viewers actually called the network to ask how they could grow their own. The BBC was resolved to announcing the next day that everyone who watched had been “April Fooled.”
