Today in History: Donald Brun born in 1909

Happy Birthday, Donald Brun! The Swiss graphic designer would have turned 109 today. Brun was born in Basel in 1909. During his apprenticeship as a graphic illustrator in the late 1920s, Brun celebrated his first successes as a poster artist when he won a Basel poster competition for “baths” in 1928. Between the 1930s and 1970s, Brun created hundreds of poster designs, mainly for consumer goods. Among his clients were such renowned companies as Bata, Bell, Gauloise, Persil or Swissair. His posters are marked by a subtle sense of humor and solid craftsmanship. In 1952, Brun became co-founder of the Alliance Graphique Internationale (AGI). He passed away in Clarens in 1999.

Today is National Pasta Day

Today is National Pasta Day

Linguine, fettuccine, spaghetti, tortellini, ziti—the list of pastas is endless! Pasta is typically thought of as an Italian dish, but there is evidence that people living in Asia in 2000 BC made noodles with millet! Pasta can be made dry (pasta secca) or fresh (pasta fresca). There are over 350 varieties of dried pasta in Italy. The highest quality of dried pasta is made with pure durum semolina flour and water. Did you know that a typical Italian person eats over sixty pounds of pasta per year? In comparison, Americans only eat around twenty pounds of pasta per person per year! Source: punchbowl.com

Today in History: The first Oktoberfest in 1810

Today in History: The first Oktoberfest in 1810

208 years ago today, the very first Oktoberfest took place. The festivities lasted five days and were organized around the wedding of the Bavarian Crown Prince. It was the first non-religious folk festival in Germany and had all of Munich on its feet – certainly something that has not changed in the last two centuries.

Today is National Liqueur Day

Today is National Liqueur Day

A liqueur is a strong alcoholic beverage that has been sweetened with herbs, fruits, nuts, cream, or spices. Liqueurs are traditionally served as after-dinner drinks or mixed with coffee. The word “liqueur” comes from the Latin word “liquifacere,” which means “to dissolve or melt.” As early as 400 BC, the Egyptians and Greeks distilled wine to produce fortified spirits. They sweetened this concoction with cinnamon and honey—a combination that we still use today to create mead. In the thirteenth century, European monks and alchemists perfected the distillation process used to create liqueur. The liquid was primarily used for medicinal purposes. Source: punchbowl.com
