I am 49 years old, and I am baking matzah for the first time in my life.

Not that baking your own matzah is a normal thing for an average Jewish-American woman to do. In fact, my mother’s response was, “Why would you want to do that?”

Openings, moves, rebirths and “gastrogestations.” So much happening on the food scene in Bucks County and across the river in New Jersey.


The Doylestown Brewing Company has lots going on. The brewery, which began in a small space in the Main Street Marketplace, is growing by leaps and…hops?

Bowman’s goes north

On January 25, 2017 By

Drive by Bowman’s Tavern, just south of New Hope on River Road, on almost any night of the week, and you’ll see a full parking lot. You’ll also see smiling people coming out.
