As you all know, today is Election Day in the United States. This is not a political website – although I do have strong opinions on the subject, this is intended to be a forum to share recipes and food information, not espouse my political views. However, I encourage all Americans to vote today no matter what your political affiliation.
For those of you, like myself, who will be watching the results this evening, there have been a number of articles recently about what to eat and drink in honor of the election and the candidates. Here are a few great ideas:
- Cocktail recipes from The New York Times: The Bar as Voting Booth
- Some suggestions for election night parties from jezebel.com: Having an Election Night Party? Consider One of these Topical Treats
- Food and Wine magazine features recipes for Red, White and Blue foods that would make appropriate nibbles for a party.
And of course, don’t forget champagne, to celebrate if the candidate of your choice wins (or drown your sorrows should he lose).
In case you need further incentive to get out to vote, you may also be able to score some free food. Companies such as Starbucks to Ben and Jerry’s will be offering freebies to voters so visit Epicurious.com to find out more details.
Bon Appétit and don’t forget to vote!!
