Desserts hold a very special place in our hearts (and our stomachs). Not only do they round out the flavor of a savory meal, they also lift our spirits! Nearly half of Americans will have dessert two times per week, making the States one of the most dessert-hungry countries in the world. Is it any wonder why National Dessert Day is so popular?
The History of National Dessert Day
Where did this delectable national holiday come from? Every October 14th, Americans around the country dedicate themselves to creating their favorite classic desserts. This celebration was crafted to honor French cultural cuisine – believe it or not, the concept of dessert only dates back a few hundred years ago! France is well-known for its tasty food offerings, as well as its habit of slicing up meals into different parts (such as the aperitif).
