History of National Buffet Day
The exact origin and the founder of National Buffet Day are still unknown. The Buffet system has originated from brannvinsbord, a type of schnapps made in Sweden in the middle of the 16th Century. It slowly starts to develop in the 18th century and developed into the modern world around the beginning of the 19th century. The Smörgåsbord buffet has not developed until the railroads were expanded into Europe. The Smörgåsbord buffet is a type of meal where the guests will be gathered before the dinner and have a small talk before dinner.
This kind of buffet usually held in separate rooms were one room for men’s and another room for women’s. In 1939 the Smörgåsbord buffet became internationally as “smorgasbord” in Newyork world’s Fair Exhibition. The term Buffet is referring to the French Type sideboard furniture where the food was served but populated in the English-speaking world in the 20th century after Sweden popularized the smorgasbord in New York.
