And…welcome to the first edition of “Old School Thursdays”, otherwise known as today in food history. Unfortunately, we’re not kicking things off with a very exciting day – no sandwiches invented or major consumer goods introduced. I’m guessing that the foodie movers and shakers of yesteryear were still too busy nursing post-post New Year’s hangovers to really do it up this early in January.
But still, some news that may inspire your menu: Today is National Chocolate Covered Cherry Day (of course). It is also the sixth anniversary of the death of Alfred Heineken, grandson of Heineken Brewery founder Gerard Adriaan Heineken, and former president of the company.
And if that’s not a good reason to dine on chocolate and beer this evening, I don’t know what is.
Thanks to foodreference.com for the information.
