Cereal Day- March 7

What is your favorite cereal? There are hundreds of types of cereal, sweet, salted, whole-grain cereals, with food coloring, stuffed with chocolate, in different forms, there is simply no end to it.

Cereal Day honors the invention of the brothers William and John Kellogg (the founders of Kelloggs) at the end of the 19th century who invented the Cornflakes by mistake .

The story behind the invention

Corn was a major component of the Hopi diet, the natives of America.

The erroneous invention of the Cornflakes brings us to the late 1890s, when an Adventist mission (Protestants who believe in the Second Coming of Jesus) began developing new foods to meet their vegetarian diet standards.

The team members experimented with several types of cereals such as wheat, rice, barley and corn.

In 1894, Dr. John Harvey Kellogg, who was in charge of the Seattle resort of Battle Creek, also an Adventist, used these recipes as part of the strict vegetarian diet that he had imposed on his patients, which also included alcohol, tobacco and caffeine.

The idea of ​​cornflakes came up accidentally when Dr. Kellogg and his brother Will Keith Kellogg left wheat porridge in the oven, forgot about it and turned to their burning business at their convalescent home.

When they returned two days later, they discovered that the porridge had dried and aged, but because they were very careful about their budget, they decided not to give it up and continue with its processing. They went over the dry dough with a rolling pin, hoping to reach the shape of long pages. To their surprise, what they were getting was flakes, which they ate and served to their patients. This event occurred on August 8, 1894, and the crushed cereal patent was registered on 31 May 1895.

In 1906, they found investors and set up a company to make cornflakes that changed its name to Kellogs (known and successful cornflakes company until now) in 1922.

Millions of people around the world eat cereal for breakfast and some for dinner or a snack. Among all types of cereals there are actually healthy ones that contain whole grains, fiber and protein.

Did you know? London has a cafe where only cornflakes are served from all over the world (link)

Did you know? Like snowflakes, cornflakes are different from each other and no two are the same.

How many cornflakes are in the box? Artist Luke Stephenson counted and found that a box of Kellogg's cornflakes (500 grams) contained 7,122 flakes. He also photographed some of them to show how the shape of each flake is unique and special.

French Toast Day- November 28

The French toast is fried bread in an egg batter, which can be prepared from salty or sweet and eaten with various additives such as whipped cream, cheese, fruit, ice cream, chocolate, butter, honey and more.

What's fun with this toast is that it does not have a special recipe and you can try it on a different way every time until you find out what recipe is best for you. To mix the fried bread you can add milk, orange juice, sugar, vanilla, cinnamon and more. The additions can also be varied. The French toast is a popular breakfast or dinner and can be prepared simply from what you have at home at the moment (provided you have the basic ingredients: bread and egg).

It is not known who invented the dish, but there is documentation that it existed in Europe already in the Middle Ages.

There is a claim that it was originally called "German toast" but during World War I, because the atmosphere in the United States was anti-German, changed its name to "Tost French."

There is also a story that the French toast was invented by an American man at a roadside inn near Albany in New York in 1724 whose name was Joseph French.

No matter where the french toast comes from, the important thing is that it is tasty, easy to prepare and can be eaten both sweet and salty and add to it anything you want.
