National Waffle Day

In France and Belgium, the waffles that we eat today first appeared. The first grain of wheat and water waffles occurred in ancient Greece. Obelisk, or flat cakes, were produced during the period and fried between hot metal plates. Round plates decorated with pictures of Jesus, The Crucifixion, and other religious symbols and themes were used to make wafers in the Middle Ages. The ingredients and methods used to make waffles evolved over time before settling on one of the many well-liked varieties we enjoy today.

The Belgian waffle was first presented to Americans at the 1962 World's Fair in Seattle, but it wasn't until the 1964–1965 World's Fair, held in Queens, New York, that it became widely popular. The waffle's original name was the Brussels waffle. Its defining characteristics are its spotless exterior and light, airy interior. It was served both plain and with whipped cream and strawberries. Nobody seemed to like the "Brussels Waffle," but the family selling them in Queens knew it was because of the name. Customers' curiosity grew as soon as they started selling it as a Belgian waffle.
