Only one major event of historical significance today, but that one is pretty important. If you’re British, anyway. Today in 1936, the British public was able to buy canned beer for the very first time. It was from Felinfoel Brewery in Wales (that, as it turns out, is still around. It’s got a pretty interesting history, too.)
Other than that, today belongs to the lobbyists. It’s Poultry Day and National Agriculture Day (pretty broad, right?) as well as National Chocolate Caramel Day (not so broad). The last actually is the most logical, as today is also the Feast of St. Joseph and he is the patron saint of confectioners.
Today’s celebration, then, really ought to include some chocolate caramels. And some canned beer (preferably from Felinfoel, but I’m not sure that you can buy any of the brewery’s beers in the US). Beyond that, you’ve got some wiggle room. Any sort of poultry and…anything else that involves agriculture. Take advantage. Celebrating food history is rarely so easy.
