Fun Food Holidays™ Today is November 27th

CDK is the home of the original Fun Food Holidays. This collection of food-related dates was created so every day would be a holiday. We have the most complete and up-to-date collection (even though others have tried to copy us) so check back each day for a new reason to celebrate food!

Today

Thanksgiving Day

The day after Thanksgiving is the biggest shopping day of the year. Here at CDK, our busiest day comes on the day before Thanksgiving, naturally! For years, CDK has been Thanksgiving headquarters to millions of people looking for recipes for brined or roast turkey, pumpkin pie, green bean casserole, sweet potatoes--you name a Thanksgiving food and it's here for you. Happy Thanksgiving!

National French Toast Day

French toast is so much more than a breakfast food. While the basic recipe features bread, eggs, and sugar, CDK has recipes for incredible, exciting variations like stuffed French toast or baked, French toast with fruit, chocolate or cinnamon, or even overnight casseroles that are ready to go in the a.m.

National Chocolates Day

Chocolates make a fine gift, and not just on St. Valentine's Day. Gift chocolates' peak seasons are, of course, February 14th and Easter. But the Holiday season is another time when samplers and other chocolate confections are given as presents to friends and colleagues. CDK would remind you that they are a common ingredient in many dessert recipes, as well. Happy National Chocolates Day!

National Mousse Day

It wasn't until the 1960s that mousse, a French dessert delicacy, made its way into the American culinary vernacular. This light and airy dessert made of eggs, cream, sugar, and often chocolate or fruit is perfect following those heavy Holiday meals. Today is National Mousse Day. Plan your holiday meals and party eats with a little mousse in them!
