There is a month for every occasion and July is no exception. Join us as we celebrate National Culinary Arts Month! This month recognizes the cooks, chefs, bakers, and food lovers who bring joy to our plates every day. Food is a significant part of every culture; it connects, sustains, delights, and inspires us. Many of us have favorite recipes from a cherished friend or family member no longer on this earth and every time we prepare that dish or bake those cookies, we are immediately swept up in treasured memories of that important loved one. National Culinary Arts Month is all about taking the time to think about the foods we put on our tables, considering the recipes that have been passed down through the generations, and celebrating the skill, dedication, and artistry required to be a great cook or chef.
