What’s the better way to celebrate Pi (π) on 3.14 than to treat you circle of friends with some Pi food? You can’t argue with Pi, whether it’s in desert or pizza form.
Pi, the mathematical ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter, is a universal constant—much like our global love for pizza’s or the Pi’s. The simplest way to incorporate math into food is to bake a Pi Pie or a pizza.
March 14 has been designated Pi Day to recognize its numerical relationship to pi—the digits in the date, 3.14, are the same as the first three digits in pi. While Pi Day started off in 1988 as a math celebration, it’s evolved into a day to bake and eat pie or pizza.
Here are the ways to celebrate Pi Day
- Enjoy the day by having Pi feast as eating the one may be the easiest and the most fun way to celebrate the day. If you’re in school, college or at your workplace then, everyone can bring in a pi-themed food for pi-pot luck, and if you’re just celebrating with friends, you can all enjoy a pi-themed meal together.
- While “pie” and “pi” are spelled differently but, the pronunciation for the same spelled out similarly so, eating pie on Pi Day is a popular option. Additionally, since traditional pies are round, their circular shape acknowledges the mathematical importance of Pi.
- You can also go for choosing the circular foods i.e. any food that has a circular shape can be fit for your feast due to the mathematical significance of pi. You might try making cookies, cakes, cupcakes, or pancakes.
- You can also consider using icing to put the pi symbol on a variety of cookies, pies, and cupcakes. You can even make the foods in advance and write pi on them in icing in a big group.
- Similarly, you can use pi-shaped cookie cutters, pans, and free-form techniques to shape these foods in the symbol for pi.
- One can also serve the food that starts with the letters “Pi” such as pineapple, pizza or pine nuts, and, also the pineapple juice & much more.
So, we can celebrate one of the most beloved circular foods this Pi Day, either in the form of pizza or desert pie!
Pi is a constant number i.e. for all the circles in the world. Pi is as usual same. And, since circles are everywhere, in terms of food too so, Pi is everywhere. It is all around us.
