Celebrate August's food days

Celebrate August's food days

They're every ad agency's dream but let's have a little bit of fun with the crazy amount of national food days that exist for August. Their origins are obscure at the best and the rise of social media has contributed to their use for sure.

Humour me as I draw upon my huge library of Thermomix recipes to demonstrate I have one for every day of the month.... and season...and year. Enjoy and try something you haven't attempted before. Failsafe & flavoursome all the way.

Check out all the foodie days to celebrate this August.
