Cook Something Bold Day


Cook Something Bold and Pungent Day is an event that allows for all sorts of delightful creativity! In fact, the activity of whipping up something in the kitchen that is original, spicy, and even a bit offensive is the entire intent of this day.

Still, this day is not meant to merely represent a disgusting concoction of disparate ingredients. Instead, Cook Something Bold and Pungent Day is intended to celebrate the use of herbs such as garlic and hot pepper to promote health and longevity.

History of Cook Something Bold and Pungent Day

As with a few other days that were founded by WellCat, Cook Something Bold and Pungent Day got its start as the brainchild of Ruth and Thomas Roy. A couple of decades ago, the Roys set out to establish a variety of quirky days that could be celebrated each month of the year, and this is just one of their many delightful ideas.

The purpose of the day is to recognize that many people are eating a little too much convenience food, and it’s time to get back into the kitchen to create some healthy, tasty fare. And along with that notion comes the awareness that many bold or pungent herbs and spices are also very healthy. Since ancient times, the use of ingredients such as garlic, onion, ginger, turmeric, hot peppers, and even mustard are not only there to offer flavor, but they also bring about some health benefits.

So get on board with celebrating Cook Something Bold and Pungent Day, delighting in the fun and satisfaction that comes from cooking, eating, and enjoying a deliciously bold and flavorful meal! (
