Buffet Day ~ January 2nd

If you are a fan of buffets, then today is your day. Personally, I love a good Chinese Buffet. I also seldom pass on a salad bar.  Buffets are one of the most popular ways to serve food when getting together with a large group of friends and family.  You simply walk down the line and choose the food you want from the available offerings.

The term buffet came from the french word for piece furniture the food was traditionally served on.

The term smorgasbord is Swedish in origin.  It was originally a brannvinsbord table and was used to serve alcoholic beverages.  It then became a popular way to serve food in the United States during the 1939 World’s Fair when Sweden used a Buffet table to serve their traditional foods.  After that,  the term buffet became synonymous with the smorgasbord and is the term we usually use today. Whether you refer to it as a smorgasbord, buffet, potluck, or anything else, it is a fun way to try new dishes and experiment with new flavors.  Whatever you choose to call it though, the very best way to celebrate this day is to head out to your favorite buffet-style restaurant and have whatever your heart desires from the many offerings available to you.
