National Food Holidays for the Month of October

October is more than just Halloween and Pumpkin smashing at its very finest. October is home to a wide variety of National Food Holidays both odd and amazing. As October draws closer and closer we feel that it is our duty to hit you off with a list of all the wonderful National Food Holidays that take place during the month that you should enjoy as much as we do.
Eat up, drink up, relax and enjoy trying different things with your loved ones and friends. In these trying days and times it is all we can do to help save us all from going insane.
And for our dedicated followers, the month of October will see The Supreme Plate holding two drawings for chances to win either a Le Creuset Roasting Pan or a Le Creuset Stainless Steel Tea Kettle.
