Recently, the Bucks County Chapter of the US Personal Chef Association took a field trip to Assi, an international (mostly Asian) supermarket in North Wales. Yes, I know it sounds a little goofy for us to visit a grocery store, but believe me, it was an [...]
Looks like we’ll be having a typical – for a change – April weekend weather-wise. One could wish for a little warmer weather for A-Day and Shad Fest but oh well. It’s a big weekend all around with lots going on.
Here’s to good spirits. If you’re into wine and beer [...]
I first encountered Jean Childs Buzgo through one of her paintings, naturally. It was a painting of a table at the Café at Rosemont, the charming restaurant north of Stockton that recently closed. It was a favorite of many, especially for weekend brunch, and will be sorely missed. The painting was actually one [...]
I’ve been meaning to do it for awhile and finally did last night – Locals Night at Karla’s in New Hope. It was a chilly, damp evening and Karla’s was cozy as always, especially with Barry Peterson playing soft guitar in the background.

Hunting and gathering – survival at its most elemental. See something you want, eat it. For some reason, this simple act – an integral part of our existence – now seems odd to people. When I tell people that I foraged for nettles, say, by the riverside, and that [...]
You’ll have to forgive me. I’m still way behind on getting ready for the holiday. So this week I’ll just give you the basics. Lots going on (with the exception of Sunday). Wishing you a good holiday, hopefully filled with good food, family and friends. And save a chocolate bunny for me!
