JUNE HOLIDAYS — Our Texas — Russian Newspaper in Houston, Dallas, San-Antonio, Austin, Texas

Texas loves to celebrate, and sometimes it doesn’t even matter what it is. An extra holiday, as they say, is never superfluous.

What did June bring us? As it turned out, many solemn and suitable days for celebration are connected with food.

June 4 is National Cheese Day. Cheese certainly deserves a separate holiday. It is the oldest food product that was found next to mummies in the mysterious Takla Makan desert and in the necropolises of Ancient Egypt. The ancient Greek hero Aristaeus mastered the art of making cheese long before the Greeks knew wine. According to Pliny the Elder, cheesemaking was a complex undertaking and originated outside of ancient Rome. A valuable foreign product was delivered to satisfy the refined tastes of the Roman elite. In Russia, before Peter I, cheese was produced in a natural, «raw» way — that is, without heat treatment, hence the name. Under Peter, European varieties of cheese began to be imported into Russia, in the current era, imports are prohibited. nine0005

For Houstonians who take this holiday seriously, there is probably no better place than Houston Dairymaids. Owner Lindsey Schechter has been in the cheese business for nearly 15 years, starting as a wholesaler and opening her own retail store in 2012. Her mission is to promote cheese makers, especially Texas ones, who create cheese by hand. From Tuesday to Friday, cheese lovers can sample a variety of cheeses for free at Houston Dairymaids in the Heights.

June 7 is National Donut Day. Of course, for someone every day is Donut Day. But in honor of National Donut Day, manufacturing companies were especially active in offering their products, as well as contests, games, fun activities. Krispy Kreme was giving away donuts for free, intriguing with the promise that, once they crossed the 1 million donut threshold, they would start offering new treats with freshly created «incredibly tasty» fillings. Dunkin’ Donuts decided to cheat and offered customers a free classic donut with the purchase of any drink. Duck Donuts gave away cinnamon or powdered sugar donuts for free. Walmart also delighted its customers with 1.2 million donuts, one per hand. nine0005

June 14 — Flag Day

It was on this day in 1777, during the American Revolutionary War, that Congress officially approved our Stars and Stripes Banner.

June 17 is Apple Strudel Day in the USA. Also on this day,

, Take Your Dog to Work Week begins, always celebrated on the Monday after Father’s Day.

On June 18, two holidays were celebrated — National Cherry Cake Day and Sushi Day. Keep in mind that overlapping the celebration can lead to some unpleasant consequences for those who eat cherry cake sushi. nine0005

June 19 — Emancipation Day in the USA coincides with Emancipation Day in the state of Texas and National Martini Day.

June 20, boasts holidays that are somehow associated with the color white — National Vanilla Milkshake Day , Ice Cream Soda Day and American Bald Eagle Day .

June 21 — Peach Day (very relevant for Texas), Take Your Dog to Work Day (observed on the Friday after Father’s Day) and National Dog Party Day .

June 22, brings two celebrations, unfortunately also not very compatible on the plate — Chocolate Eclair Day and National Onion Ring Day.

June 23rd is National Pecan Cookie Day. This is a very Texas holiday, since the pecan tree has been the state symbol of Texas since 1919. Texans even celebrate an entire National Pecan Month — April. nine0005

Three days, 24, 25 and June 26, Sweet Tooth Lovers — Praline Day , Strawberry Parfait Day and National Chocolate Pudding Day.

June 27, will celebrate romance — National Orange Blossom Day .

June 29, — again a joy for lovers of sweets — Crispy Caramel Day with Almonds .

End the month on Sunday 30 June can be cocktail Mai Tai , because this is his National Day . Having sipped an exotic drink of the South Seas, remember its creators. One of them is an extraordinary personality from Auckland — Victor Bergeron, who called himself Trader Vic.

Owner and soul of the Polynesian-style restaurant chain Trader Vic’s and Tiki bar and a man of many talents, Vic created experimental food and drink, original jewelry and bronze sculptures, wrote books for adults and children, painted oil paintings (exclusive subjects — nude ladies and wild animals), collected relic fossils, engaged in exotic design and was considered the world’s largest specialist in rum. Over 50 years, he built a $50 million empire—not bad for a boy with one leg who started from scratch (losing it at age 6 in an accident, Vic liked to talk about his leg being “bitten by a shark”). nine0005

According to legend, the name of the cocktail came from Tahitian guests. After tasting the drink, they said, «Mai tai roa ae.» Since very few linguists on the planet can understand the dialect of drunken Polynesians, there are two versions of the translation of these words — «something awkward, out of this world» and «good and even excellent.» Choose any, but, however, does it matter?

In addition to Bergeron, who announced his cocktail in the 40s, the right to invent Mai Tai is disputed by Don Beach, another exceptional personality — a Texan from Limestone County, with roots in Louisiana and Jamaica, an adventurer, Californian businessman and World War II veteran. The «founding father of tiki culture» who traveled the world claimed to have created the cocktail in the 1930s in Hollywood when he opened the first tiki bar, Don the Beachcomber. nine0005

Don kept his recipe a terrible secret. The Bergeron version of the cocktail was simpler, more accessible, and gained more popularity. Vic cheerfully distributed the recipe to everyone — through magazines, in his own bars, sending rum and other ingredients «with the words of this song» to American soldiers during the war.
