National "I LOVE FOOD DAY"

September 9th is National "I Love Food" Day!

Here are today's five things to know about Food:
--- Buffets are offered at various places including hotels and many social events.
--- Sideboards are also known as buffets as they may be used to offer the dishes of a buffet meal to guests.
--- A buffet can also be referred to as a cafeteria, snack bar, counter and smorgasbord.
--- The word buffet comes from Fr buffet "bench, stool, sideboard," from the 12th century. The definition of the buffet was extended to mean a "meal served from a buffet" in 1888.
--- One form of buffet is to have a table filled with plates containing fixed portions of food; customers select plates containing whichever food items they want as they walk along.

Today's Food History
