Quote for Today: “Life is rather like a tin of sardines – we’re all of us looking for the key.” Alan Bennett National Sardines Day A Tad of Food History Sardines are abundant in the seas of the Atlantic, Pacific, and Mediterranean with Spain, Portugal and Norway leading the world’s canned production. Emperor Napoleon Bonaparte helped popularize these little fish by initiating their canning to help feed the masses he ruled over. Upscale Restaurants Serving Sardine Dishes Restaurants are putting these little guys back on their menus as well. At the Sardine Factory in Monterey, California they offer Wild Sardines, Lightly Smoked with Onions, Chopped Eggs, Lemons, and Capers as a first course. At San Francisco’s Rich Table, you can get a pile of paper-thin sardine potato chips with a tangy Horseradish Creme Fraiche topped with sprigs of Peppercress.

National Espresso Day Quote for Today: “Thank you for your coffee, seignior. I shall miss that when we leave Casablanca.” Ingrid Bergman, in Casablanca Today is National Espresso Day! We have been enjoying our Morning Joe this month by dabbling in a variety of coffee methods and blends including cappuccino, macchiato, caffè macchiato, and caffé latte. Today’s National Food and Beverage Holiday – National Espresso Day is the straight-up version of the foundation of many of these coffee beverages. Wake up and smell the coffee: National Espresso Day What is Espresso? Espresso is a method of brewing coffee not a coffee blend. It’s an Italian coffee brewed by forcing a small amount of nearly boiling water under pressure through finely ground coffee beans (50). Espresso is generally thicker than coffee brewed by other methods, has a higher concentration of suspended and dissolved solids, and has crema on top – foam with a creamy consistency.
