Tired of the sporadic and outdated food holidays that were quietly celebrated each year—most of which were created by food companies to market their products—blogger John-Bryan Hopkins decided to revamp food celebrations and spice them up with his own favorite foods. Creating a food holiday for every day of the year, Hopkins launched Foodimentary.com, which became an immediate overnight success with Google adopting his bespoke calendar. With thousands of fans across multiple platforms, Foodimentary.com is the number-one go-to resource cited by numerous magazines, newspapers, and websites to definitively know which food is being celebrated and when. Mixing Hopkins’ online success with fun food facts, forgotten histories, and classic recipes, while folding in scrumptious illustrations and rare photographs, Foodimentary is a festive jubilee of America’s culinary roots and inventions, from today’s more recent novelties, such as Ranch Dressing Day (celebrated on March 10), to popular dishes of yesteryear such as National Thermidor Day (celebrated on January 24). Whether enjoyed à la carte or consumed in one sitting, get ready to be swept into a twelve-month course created exclusively by Foodimentary.com!
Created by John-Bryan Hopkins in 2005 as a food blog and then as a website and Twitter account soon after, Foodimentary was named one of Time magazine's 149 Best Twitter Feeds in 2013. Mentioned on countless cooking channels and publications such as the Cooking Channel, Epicurious, The New York Times, Slate, Time and the Food Network, Foodimentary has become the Internet's leading source for food holidays and celebrations and is considered a pioneer in social-media food communication.
