World Nutella Day

Though I am still the champion of all butters that are of the Arachidinis variety I thought I'd join my blog buddy Michelle at Bleeding Espresso and her friend Sara at Ms. Adventures in Italy in celebrating Italy's favorite spread.

Today is officially World Nutella Day - the day in which happy peasants harvest the.... no sorry that's not how its done. A quick click on the World Nutella Day logo will take you to the true story of Pietro Ferrero's Supercrema. I was surprised how the recipe varies from country to country depending on local taste buds.

To start the festivities Michelle delivers her Ode to Nutella . Then after a break for a spoonful of Nutella straight from the jar Sara addresses the perplexing question of Nutella Virgins. I'm sure the celebration will continue througout the day as other bloggers feature tributes, recipes and stories of their encounters with the chocolaty-hazelnuty delights of their favorite topping.

I went as far as having it on my toast this morning rather than my normal peanut butter but I think I will resist a colleague's suggestion of a Nutella pizza for lunch.

I like Nutella on a crepe with caramelized banana slices and vanilla ice cream...
