18 July - Hot Dog Day
On July 18, 1957, the US Chamber of Commerce established a national holiday - Hot Dog Day.
Mystery of the origin of the Hot Dog:
1. Basically, a hot dog is a sausage in a bun and seasonings, but it has some serious ancient roots. For example, sausages were mentioned in Homer's Odyssey. Emperor Nero's chef, Gaius, prepared them for his ruler.
2. According to the Austrian city of Vienna, two Austro-Hungarian immigrants, Emil Reichel and Sam Ladani, invented the hot dog in their beautiful city. When the two men left Europe for Chicago, they simply took the recipe with them and sold hot dogs at the 1893 World's Fair.
3. Meanwhile, officials in Frankfurt, Germany, say hot dogs were invented in their city in 1487.
It is known that mustard is the most popular hot dog seasoning (ketchup recedes closer to second place).
Did you know hot dogs were sent into space?
The story goes: the astronauts of the Apollo 7 mission in 1968 didn't really like the freeze-dried ice cream they took into space. This food was removed from the space program. So the hot dog appeared in the diet of astronauts.
Naked facts:
In 2014, the most expensive hot dog in the world was sold in Seattle, Washington for $169.
In 2015, one eater broke the hot dog eating record when he ate 62 hot dogs in 10 minutes.
