Event: Fluorescent Yellow Food Day

Feb 20, 2012 by     1 Comment     Posted under: Events, Reviews

Have you heard about this crazy international holiday which celebrates all foods yellow?  Pretty wacky and kind of fun.  So it may not be a fully celebrated holiday the world over, but it apparently has been celebrated by a few individuals worldwide.  Does that make it international?  Sure, why not.

What is Fluorescent Yellow Food Day?

I first discovered Fluorescent Yellow Food Day a few years ago in Boise, Idaho.  It was the creation of some genius girls, who were roommates at the time, when they noticed that everything they were eating for dinner one night was yellow.  They thought that was a bit odd and somewhat humorous, and just like that, the holiday was born.  We have so many holidays which honor dead people, or national history, or love, but how many do we have that are strictly about honoring food?  Not many that I know of, which makes this holiday seem appropriate for The Bald Gourmet to honor and share with others.  Feb. 20th is a day to be YELLOW!

Where do I Find Additional Information on Fluorescent Yellow Food Day?

You can find more about this colorful mastermind at www.fluorescentyellowfoodday.com.  I encourage you to visit the site, and throw a Fluorescent Yellow Food Day celebration of your own.

What Kind of Food Can I Make to Celebrate Fluorescent Yellow Food Day?

This year, I made Stuffed Yellow Peppers with Turmeric and Tarragon Rice (cooked in blended Yellow Tomatoes) with Spicy Italian Sausage and Onions.  Delicious, and mighty yellow!!  Last year, a delightful stir-fried Indian Curry Rice Noodle dish.  Let your imagination go wild, just dream in yellow!
