July 4th Food Facts

4th Burger


 Louis Lassen of New Haven, CT, earned the honor of serving the first ground beef sandwich on white bread after a customer needed a quick and filling hot lunch. Charles Nagreen of Seymour, Wisconsin also earned the honor of being the first to serve the hamburger at a local fair after trying to make his trademark meatballs easier to eat and carry around the fairgrounds. These are just two of a number of national legends trying to take credit for the first burger.




Watermelons originally came from the Kalahari Desert region in Africa, which is interesting because the average watermelon is 92 percent water. 

Corn is the largest crop in the United States. The origin of cultivated corn is unknown, however. 


The origin of the hot dog is not clearly known. There are several variations of its birth. For instance, a NY Evening Journal cartoonist claimed at the turn of the 20th century that a vendor at a NY Giants game created the tasty treat on the spot and dubbed them "red hots." He drew a cartoon of the moment as a dachshund sitting in a long bun and used "hot dog" instead because he couldn't spell dachshund. Another historian claims that a frankfurter vendor in New Jersey nicknamed his sausages "hot dogs" and earned himself the nickname in the process, causing the name to stick to the food for years to come.



4th of July is the biggest holiday for beer sales, with approximately 68.3 million cases of beer sold.  The rest of the top five, in order are:  Labor Day, Memorial Day, Father's Day, and Christmas. 

The phrase "as American as apple pie" has made the dessert treat a staple of any patriotic holiday or celebration. The truth is that apple pie had its roots embedded in other cultures long before America came along and joined the world. All but one breed of apples aren't indigenous to American soil and came to the States by way of early European settlers who brought the fruit and the original pie recipe with them.

"I could not have been happier 
with my experience with Serendipity Catering from start to finish.  From my initial phone call to you to the close of the rehearsal dinner, everything went smoothly.  (Serendipity staff) was very accommodating to every request, and the evening went off without a hitch.  Planning a party in Estes Park from my home in San Francisco was daunting, but Serendipity made it very easy for me."
