Have you heard of International Carrot Day 4th April 2018?
The Carrot Day was founded 2003 to spread knowledge about the carrot and its good attributes around the world.
The day is increasingly popular and April 4th, 2012 carrot celebration was reported from France, Italy, Sweden, Russia, Australia, UK, and Japan.
If you love carrots then you will love The World Carrot Museum which is the first virtual museum in the world entirely devoted to the history, evolution, science, sociology, and art of Carrots. The mission is to educate, inform and amuse visitors through the discovery, collection, preservation, interpretation, and exhibition of objects relating to the Carrot. This site provides lots of interesting and useful information about the humble carrot.
To celebrate International Carrot Day on the 4th April I thought I would add my Carrot Loaf Cake Recipe to my blog. Enjoy…
