FOOD DAYS EVERY BAKER SHOULD KNOW – 2021 List

It still amazes me the amount of ‘Food Day’ there are. There are National ones in the states, a few in the UK and then some world ‘days’. It’s even expanded into ‘weeks’ & ‘months’ too. But if it educates and inspires people to bake something they wouldn’t normally, then I am all for it. And because it’s not always worldwide there is sometimes an over-lap and 2 ‘days’ in one year. But hey, for us food bloggers, food developers and bakers, it’s a a win win, where we can showcase our recipes, be it on-line, in social media or at home with our family and friends.

So here is a list of 2021’s ‘Food Days’ & ‘Food Weeks’. Please note it is not a full list, but rather what I find applicable to our industry. If you want you can download and save to your phone or computer, by simply clicking the ‘download’ button below.
