While you're frying up some eggs and bacon, we're cooking up something else: a way to celebrate today's food holiday.

When life gives you lemons, make ceviche - June 28 is el Día Nacional del Cebiche, or National Ceviche Day!

Ceviche is a South and Central American dish that has swum into the mainstream in recent years. It’s made by marinating a firm fish in citric acid, typically from a lemon or lime. The acid essentially "cooks" the fish over time by chemical process.

At first glance, Austrian artist Klaus Pichler's spell-binding photographs could be mistaken for a set of stylish advertisements. It takes a moment to digest - excuse the pun - that you're staring at pictures of rotting food.

Among them, a pineapple hangs suspended in negative space above an antique gold dish - its formerly yellow flesh having given way to luminous green mold; Deep purple beetroots sit snugly in an elegant porcelain vase with thin films of gray fur accumulating on their skin.

Some of her most renowned accomplishments include the canon of romantic comedies, "When Harry Met Sally," "Sleepless in Seattle" and "You've Got Mail."

Her most recent film, "Julie & Julia," follows writer Julie Powell (played by Amy Adams) as she cooks her way through Julia Child's cookbook "Mastering the Art of French Cooking," and subsequently, finds a new recipe on life. Meryl Streep earned a 2010 Oscar nomination for her portrayal of the legendary bon vivant, Julia Child.

Editor's note: All summer long, the Southern Foodways Alliance will be delving deep in the history, tradition, heroes and plain old deliciousness of barbecue across the United States. Dig in.

Dearly beloved, we are gathered in this post to celebrate the union of love and barbecue.

With the summer wedding season in full swing, love is in the air - and it is increasingly followed by the perfume of burning wood and smoking meat. Once confined to the South, more and more wedding rehearsal dinners and receptions across the country feature a barbecue-laden feast. Recently, as I was leaving his son's wedding, a Colorado barbecue man - by way of Opelousas, Louisiana - gave me a parting gift of some alligator meat to smoke.

While you're frying up some eggs and bacon, we're cooking up something else: a way to celebrate today's food holiday.

Make haste! June 27 is National Indian Pudding Day.

If you’re not from the Northeast, you may not be familiar Indian pudding. Here’s a hint: the “Indian” the name references the Native American population.

When the British came to America, they brought with them a love of pudding. The British version, however, resembles a really moist cake. One in particular is called a "hasty pudding." This type of pudding is made from boiling flour in milk or water until it forms a mushy porridge.

If there's a presidential race afoot, there's bound to be some chowing-down around town. President Obama stopped by Atlanta's classic hot dog drive-in The Varsity, entourage in tow, and ordered five chili dogs, four regular dogs, and one hamburger - which he toted back to the parking lot in a paper bag.
