Who knew? July 29th is recognized as National Lasagna Day. Why is this day right in the midst of summer when high temperatures and humidity are upon us? Why lasagna and not spaghetti day or manicotti day? The world may never know. Perhaps it is because lasagna has become one of America’s favorite pasta dishes. Once a simple and delicious recipe layering noodles, cheeses, tomato sauce and meat or veggies, has exploded as chefs and food lovers added their own creative twists and spins of this classic dish.
Today you can find recipes for butternut squash lasagna, Mexican lasagna, chicken alfredo lasagna, veggie lasagna and even chocolate lasagna for dessert. In art terms, lasagna has become a blank canvas that you get to paint, the creative options are endless. Check out our “Pass the Lasagna…” Pinterest board for some pinspiration in honor of National Lasagna Day. And remember, Chabaso Ciabatta breads, rolls and STIX™ would make a great side.
We want to hear your most creative lasagna dish! Tell us about your lasagna recipe.
National Blueberry Month!
Celebrate National Blueberry Month with Turkey Sandwiches featuring Blueberry Chutney Spread and Chabaso All Natural Artisan Bread.
July is National Blueberry Month. Blueberries are nicknamed by some, “one of the world’s healthiest foods”. High in antioxidants, fiber and vitamin C, fresh plump blueberries are a great healthy addition to any snack, dessert or meal. July also happens to be the time when blueberries are at the peak of their harvest so you shouldn’t have any trouble finding these tiny little gems in your local grocery store or farmer’s market.
For great recipes and information on additional health benefits of blueberries, visit the U.S Highbush Blueberry Council’s website. The website is packed with creative recipes including a Blueberry Chutney spread for turkey sandwiches. Perfect with a Chabaso all natural artisan baguette or on Chabaso all natural multigrain or 100% whole wheat artisan sandwich bread.

Happy 4th of July!
July 4th is a time to celebrate our independence and what better way to do that, than to get family and friends together and have a BBQ followed by watching fireworks light up the sky? This July 4th there will be over 74 million Americans planning a Barbeque. Americans will consume around 150 million hotdogs and 700 million pounds of chicken! Time for something new? Celebrate Independence Day by thinking outside of the box and lighting the grill for some tasty Pizza STIX™. Incorporate some thinly sliced blue potatoes and you will have one scrumptious patriotic Ciabatta pizza that is quick and simple to make.
Most importantly though, let’s not forget all of our troops, members and veterans of the military that work hard and make many sacrifices to keep our country safe and free. All of us at Chabaso Bakery thank you immensely for your service.
Thank you! Have a great 4th!
