July 25th is Culinarian's Day
you're looking for something to do today then I hope you like food
because... wait, who doesn't like food? It's Culinarian's Day!
Oh yes, a day for those that help us feast... let's get right
WHY IS THIS A
Well, think about it... you really can't go long without food,
now can you? And if no one knew how to cook then you'd be very limited
on what you could eat or you'd just have to be down with eating some
pretty gross stuff. BUT we have culinarians, chefs or cooks that keep
us from hating the process of eating. They make meals delicious and
sometimes even get really artistic with it when they present it to you.
They keep our stomachs happy and they deserve a holiday! There
are many different types of culinarians out there and some actually
specialize in certain types of cooking. They go to culinary schools,
learn first hand and they master the craft so that we can taste some of
the best food our taste buds have ever had rubbed on them. They wear
fancy little outfits and they know more about cooking than you do about
But this holiday isn't limited to just professional
culinarians. No, anyone that cooks on a regular basis is a culinarian
in my mind. You don't have to work at a fancy restaurant or have won
awards for your recipes. All you need to do is cook often and put in
the extra effort to learn how to make meals taste as delicious as they
look. So even though you're not a professional, this day is for you
too! Give my compliments to the chef!
So, how can you celebrate today? Well, why don't you go out
to a fancy restaurant first so that you can see why you should
appreciate culinarians? Get something you know you'll love or try
something new. And when you end up really enjoying your meal, let the
culinarian or chef know! Tell the waiter to let them know or ask for
the chef to come out to you so you can tell them yourself. You could
try to tip them but I'm sure that's against the restaurant's policy.
However you can always give praise to the culinarians at that
restaurant so that they get more business and become a frequent patron
to the restaurant yourself. Or, you can always give a culinarian
you know a little break today. Tell them that you love all the food
they make but today they get a day off. Make them something they love
and try to keep them out of the kitchen so that they don't give you
pointers on it. Cook for them all day and keep reminding them that this
is how nice it is to have someone else cook for you. And then at the
end of the day you can hand the reigns back to them and let them cook
as they always do. Plus you can pay attention to their gripes as
they are cooking. Do they always complain about an appliance or a
utensil? Is there anything you can do for them to make cooking at home
easier? Can you get them a new appliance, utensils, pots or pans? Can
you keep the kids out of the kitchen while they cook? Or can you do the
dishes or clean off the counters so that it's easier to cook in your
kitchen? Show them that you appreciate their love for cooking by making
it easier for them to cook. Have a great day and enjoy your meal!
