August is National Panini Month

Though the official date to celebrate National Panini Day is unclear, we can at least take comfort in knowing that the whole month of August is officially set aside to enjoy these succulent Italian sandwiches.

The Panini sandwich, in its earliest incarnation, may actually date back to 16th century Italy.  It became trendy in Europe in the 1970s/1980s, and caught on in America about a decade later.  At that time, they were a popular stable in New York and soon migrated to the rest of the United States.  Of course, now days, Panini sandwiches can be found at restaurants everywhere, whether included in fast food menus or fancy restaurants specializing in Italian cuisine.

The Panini, itself, is a specialty consisting of meats, cheeses, vegetables — and any other ingredients you like — placed between two pieces of bread (often ciabatta, foccacia, or rosetta), and grilled in a two-sided grill called a panini press.

So how does one celebrate National Panini Month?  As you may have already deduced, to participate, you simply need to indulge in one or more of these hot, crunchy Italian masterpieces during the month of August.  And if you’re feeling extra adventurous, you can share your paninis with friends and family, or even have your own festive panini party for one and all!
