Here’s what’s happening this weekend

FRIDAY, August 12th – National Julienne Fries Day*

*On National Julienne Fries Day celebrated every August 12, head out to the eatery of your choice and order some julienne fries. Don’t know what julienne fries are? Well, they’re just normal fries that are cut using the julienne culinary method. This means the fries are chopped into thin pieces that are almost the size of a matchstick. Why opt for the fries, you ask? Because they are classy, crispy, and taste slightly different than the regular fries served at many restaurants. So what are you waiting for? Grab a friend and head out on a fries-eating spree!

 

Saturday, August 13th – National Filet Migon Day*

*National Filet Mignon Day is on August 13 — an occasion that celebrates the creation of the delicious filet mignon. The steak is the epitome of luxury and is in high demand by the rich in every society. This is because the meat of a filet mignon just melts in the mouth and is a pure definition of decadence and magnificence in the world of cooking. Filet mignon is basically made out of tenderloin meat that is one of the most prized cuts of beef. Hence, it’s not a surprise that the dish is so delicious and one of the top favorites in every restaurant.
