Baking is a method of preparing food by heating the oven oven compartment with the food inside it.

When it comes to baking, it is usually baking bread, cakes or meat.

This method of preparing food has existed since prehistoric times when humans began baking bread.

During baking, cooked food loses fluids and dries. Different baking methods solve this problem, which can lead to the burning of the food by adding liquids (sauce) during baking, around the baked food or on it, or by covering the surface of the food with an oily substance such as oil or butter to reduce the loss The liquids.

Baking is usually done in the oven. The oven is electrically heated, cooking gas, or other heating materials. There are baking styles that are not using an oven, which uses a hot fire blaze, hot stones placed in a hole or a hot metal plate.

How to celebrate World Baking Day?

Surprise friend, neighbor or relative with a delicious sweet or savory baked treat and let them know how much you care about them.

Vanilla Cupcake Day - November 10th

Vanilla Cupcake Day is a special day for cupcake lovers with a vanilla flavor designed to cherish the little cake and celebrate its existence.

The cupcake was invented in the United States in 1796 when the recipe for a cake baked in small cups was written in the cookbook - American Cookery (by Emilia Simmons). 

The earliest documentation of the term cupcake was in 1828 in the book "Seventy-five Receipts for Pastry, Cakes, and Sweetmeats" by Eliza Leslie, a popular recipe writer from Philadelphia who lived in the 19th century.

The cupcakes got their name because of their baking in a cup-shaped mold. In the UK they are called Fairy Cakes and in Australia Patty Cakes. The vanilla cupcakes are made by adding vanilla extract to the cake batter and icing or any topping.

Did you know? Vanilla is considered one of the most expensive spices in the world, second only to saffron.


The vanilla plant is first cultivated by the people of the Totonak on the east coast of Mexico. The spice came to Europe by the Spaniards in the 16th century by the conqueror Hernan Cortes, the man who also brought the chocolate to Europe. Rumor has it that Thomas Jefferson, the third president of the United States, is the one who brought vanilla from France to America in the late 19th century, after tasting vanilla-flavored cream ice cream in Paris.

By the end of the 19th century, Mexico had produced almost all of the vanilla in the world. Today, however, it produces only about 10% of the world's total production of the spice. Madagascar and Indonesia now produce most of the vanilla in the world.

Despite the expense involved, vanilla is one of the most sought after flavors in the world. Today, it is used in a variety of food items, including cakes, ice creams and beverages; And products like perfumes and candles.

The reason for choosing the date of November 10 today is the vanilla cupcake is unknown.

So many people are addicted to cappuccino - Cappuccino is the perfect drink for a cold day, to meet in a cafe with friends, to walk around with it in a cup with a lid that warms the hands and in general to indulge with it whenever possible.

The cappuccino is traditionally made with espresso, hot milk and frothed milk. The origin of the cappuccino is from Italy.
The origin of the word cappuccino is from the Order of Friars Minor Capuchin, an order of the Catholic Church, where monks wore robes with pointed brown hats reminiscent of the popular coffee color.
The first espresso machine used to make a cappuccino was first introduced in the early 20th century, after Luigi Bazera of Milan patented it in 1901.
In 1945, Achilla Gajia, the owner of a café in Milan, invented the modern espresso machine that was suitable for many cafes and restaurants, thus increasing the popularity of cappuccino.
In the mid-1990s cappuccino became a popular beverage in North America, in upscale cafes.
By the late 1990s to the early 2000s, the cappuccino had already become the domain of all cafes for their visitors, while booming in the American coffee industry.
At the beginning of the 21st century, cappuccinos also began to be served in fast food chains.
Cappuccino has also gained popularity in the United Kingdom, due to the British custom of drinking coffee with milk.

When making cappuccino, great care must be taken to arrive at the right ratio of foam and hot milk. The lower third of the cabbage contains the espresso, and the next two thirds consist equally of the hot milk and the whipped part.
A skilled barista can also create artistic forms while he / she pours the frothed milk. The artistic illustrations on top of the foam are called "latte art".

Nachos Day- November 6

Nachos Day is one of the food days in the United States and is celebrated every year on November 6.

The nachos is a food whose source is from Mexico and it started to be popular in Texas and from there in many countries around the world.

The nachos was invented in 1943 in northern Mexico, in a place called Piedras Negres, in the state of Coahuila. One evening, several U.S. soldiers wives who were at an outpost in the area, located just off the border with Texas, arrived at a hotel restaurant.


The restaurant was already closed and the food was almost over. The restaurant's head waiter, whose name was Ignacio "Nacho" Anaya, had to improvise to give them something to eat.

From the only ingredients he had: a few tortillas, some grated cheese and peppers, he made snacks with melted cheese and chopped peppers. The women very much liked the snack and when they asked the waiter what they were called, he replied: "Nacho's specials."

The snack soon became a hit in Texas and other Southwest states.

Ignacio Nacio Anaya moved to work at the El Moderno restaurant in Pieders Negres, which turned his nachos into its special dish. To this day the restaurant adheres to its Nachos and serves them.

Ignacio later opened his own restaurant and called it "Nacho's Restaurant", also in Pieders Negres, Mexico. Ignacio Nacio Anaya died in 1975. The original recipe of Nachos was printed in St. Ann's Cookbook in 1954.

Later, they began marketing the nachos in new versions, serving it with sauces such as spicy salsa, minced meat or guacamole, and it became a commercial snack.

International Sushi Day - June 18

International Sushi Day is celebrated on June 18. The reason for choosing this date is unknown. But what does it matter. The idea is great. 
International Sushi Day was first celebrated in 2009. 
How to celebrate this day? by eating sushi of course!

Some interesting facts about sushi: 
The source of the sushi is not in Japan - the sushi actually came from Southeast Asia, from the Mekong River in China, from fermented fish dishes wrapped in sour rice. The concept of modern sushi was invented in Japan by Hanaya Yohei around the end of the Edo period in Japan, a period in Japanese history that began in 1603 and ended in 1868 with the transformation of Japan into a modern one. 

The sushi started as a quick and cheap snack, something you eat with your hands, like when you watch a movie at a movie theater.
The wasabi we eat is probably not real wasabi - the real wasabi comes from the root of the wasabia japonica plant, not horse radish. The authentic Wasabi is expensive. The wasabi is usually served in sushi restaurants made of mustard and mustard powder, and a green color with artificial colors makes it look like the real wasabi.
The sushi became popular in Western countries in the 1960s.

Burger is one of the most delicious and popular dishes for people around the world. But there is also a hamburger that is not made of meat, but of vegetables, and June 5 is the day of this hamburger - the veggie burger day.

The veggie burgers are very tasty, and sometimes those who eat them do not feel the difference between them and meat burgers.

There are many versions of vegetarian burgers, but what is common to all is that their ingredients are all based on plants. They are based on pulses, lentils, black beans, soybeans, nuts, seeds, quinoa, rice, vegetables such as sweet potatoes, cauliflower, corn, carrots and mushrooms.

With all due respect, the vegetable burgers are healthier than meat burgers.

They contain less saturated fat and therefore are not dangerous to the heart and blood vessels and have a high quality protein and fiber needed for the body.

Ketchup Day - June 5th

 Some like it very much and some less. There are those who add it to everything, including noodles, rice, omelet and more ... some are criticized for overuse. Some people eat it only with chips.
No matter how much you like it, ketchup is the most popular sauce in the Western world. In 200 countries around the world, about 650 million bottles of Heinz ketchup alone are sold each year.
June 5 is Ketchup Day. We have not yet discovered why this date is set for Ketchup day but we are searching.

The history of ketchup
The first documented recipe for ketchup comes from China from 544 AD. The sailors called the sauce based on the fish ke-tchup and it was made from the "gut, stomach and bladder of the yellow fish, shark and mullet" that incubated for 20 days under sunlight in summer until they were ready to eat, 50 days in spring or autumn and 100 days in winter.
In the early 1700s the Chinese sauce came to Malaysia, where it was discovered by English explorers who were there. By 1740 it had already become a major ingredient in English cuisine.
At first there were no tomatoes in this sauce at all. The British who tried to replicate the sauce at home encountered an obstacle: in the Asian version soybeans had major ingredients and they were not grown in Europe. So instead of soy, European chefs tried to add oysters, nuts and mushrooms.
It was not until 1801 that Sandy Edison added the tomatoes to the sauce ingredients and wrote the recipe in the American cookbook "Sugar house book".

More people then published recipes for ketchup, and as the years went by, ketchup gained great popularity in American cuisine which was an avid tomato lover.
At first it was the farmers who grew tomatoes that sold the ketchup.
In 1837 American Jonas Yerkes began to produce and sell at a national level ketchup sauce in a bottle and followed, in 1876 the Heinz company began to produce and sell its own ketchup whose sales slogan was: "Blessed relief for Mother and the other women in the household!"
In the early days of America, there was very little concern for food safety. Unfortunately it was not uncommon for dishonest shop owners to sell meat and other foods that were neither fresh nor safe to eat to their customers. To cover up the bad taste and smell, most store owners added ketchup. This thick sauce sourced from Chinese pickled fish sauce was used to eliminate the bad taste more than anything else. There was no standard for this spice, it could be made of anything, with a variety of ingredients.
In 1876, the F. & J. Heinz Company began selling "tomato ketchup," which became a big hit. Then more companies started selling ketchup, only instead of using fresh tomatoes like Heinz, they used inferior products to lower costs.
Mr. Heinz sent his son to Washington, D.C.: His mission was to persuade the lobby in Congress to adopt strict standards to ensure the American people received healthy and safe food at the family dinner table.
Heinz's efforts led to the development of what is now known as the FDA (Federal Food and Drug Administration).

Biscuit Day - May 29

May 29 is Biscuit Day, the cookie that usually goes with a dip in coffee or tea.
The biscuit is a crispy cookie, slightly sweet, flat, usually square but there are also round biscuits.
The biscuit was invented on September 8, 1886 by Louis Lefèvre-Utile of the French city of Nantes, who called it "Petit beurre".


Did you know that the shape of the biscuit has its original wild flakes and holes where it has meaning?
The shape of the biscuit represents the calendar year. It has four corners for the four seasons. It has 14 longitudinal teeth and 10 lateral teeth. That is, 52 teeth in total (when adding the teeth in the corners), as the number of weeks per year. There are 24 holes on the surface of the biscuit, about the number of hours in a day.


Louis' original bar mouthpiece, representing the calendar year (photo source
The biscuit was a worldwide success, but since Louis did not copyright it, many companies began copying its recipe and form. It was not until 1888 that Louis registered it as copyright and called it the "original Petit beurre" to differentiate it from the brands of competing companies.


The common flavors of biscuits are butter, coffee, cinnamon and more.
One of the best delicacies of the summer is the ice cream sandwich  made of two biscuits with vanilla or chocolate flavored ice cream in between.
There is also a savory biscuit which is basically a cracker.
There are biscuits for dogs that are given to them as a positive reinforcement during training or just as a treat.


How to celebrate Biscuit Day?
Make tea or instant coffee, serve it with a plate of biscuits next to it. Dip the biscuits into the hot beverage and eat. Just be careful that the biscuit does not fall and fall apart inside the glass. If that happens, you can eat the melted biscuit in a spoon, not bad.
Another option is to take a biscuit and spread chocolate spread or peanut butter on it. You can also have jam or whatever you feel like.

Black Forest Cake Day - March 28

March 28 is a special day of the year dedicated to the corrupt dessert that originated in Germany, the Black Forest Cake. In German the cake is called Schwarzwälder Kirschtorte, which means "cherry pie of the Black Forest".

The Black Forest cake is named after the special drinks (Schwarzwalder Kirschwasser - cherry liqueur) of the Black Forest region (Schwarzwald) in southwestern Germany.

The cake is made from several layers of chocolate cake between whipped cream and cherries. On the top layer, decorate the cake with whipped cream, maraschino cherries and chocolate chips. In the United States bakers usually do not use alcohol. However, in Germany, liqueur is a must-have ingredient. Otherwise, the cake cannot be legally sold under the name Schwarzwalder Kirschtorte.

Confectioner Josef Keller (1887–1981) claimed to have invented the Schwarzwalder Kirschtorte in its present form in 1915 and served it at the Agner Cafe in Bad Godesberg, now a suburb of Bonn, about 500 km north of the Black Forest. His claim has never been proven.

The Black Forest cake was first mentioned in writing in 1934, in the cookbook Konditorei-Spezialitäten und wie sie entstehen. At the time it was popular in Berlin, but also available at high-class confectioners in other cities in Germany, Austria and Switzerland.

In 1949 the Black Forest cake was ranked 13th on the list of best known German cakes.

Beyond the history of the cake, bakers and confectioners love to create elegant displays when baking the Black Forest cake. The combination of rich chocolate layers with a contrasting color and bold red cherries offer bakers the option to design stunning cakes. The interpretations given to the cake produce a host of spoiled desserts that are a lust for the palate and eyes.

Where is the Black Forest?

The Black Forest is located at the southwestern tip of Germany, in the state of Baden-Württemberg. The forest is bounded by the border with Switzerland to the south and France (River Rhine) to the west.
