October 20th is International Chefs Day!

This fun holiday was started in 2004. Celebrate the chefs in your family by saying thank you, helping out, or giving them a day off!

Once upon a time, King Henry VIII found a hair in his soup. He had his royal cook punished, and ordered the next chef to start wearing a hat. The cook was only too happy to comply. All the chefs in the world started wearing hats from then on.
