It’s no surprise that the fitness clubs become so popular in January. December is probably the most calorie-laden month of the year. Holiday parties, big dinners and don’t forget the constant flow of goodies that show up in the break room at work. It’s okay, because this time of year the food is always too good to […]

Note: We are working on an update of this post for 2016. In the meantime, call these establishments to see what their foodie gift availability is for the year.
It’s that festive time of year and whether we are celebrating the 12 days of Christmas or the eight days […]
We’re changing things up a bit here at Bucks County Taste. Our weekday calendar post will come out on Mondays now, and on Thursdays look for our “Things you gotta do in Bucks this weekend” post. So now you don’t have to wait until the weekend to have fun. There’s plenty to do during the week, […]

For those of us who will still be stuck here roaming the earth after the rapture, we might as well enjoy ourselves, no? My husband tells me – and he’s the one who watches the news 24/7 for his living – that the ones left behind will have five whole months before the […]
Cookbooks have changed in many ways over the years. There were tomes like Joy of Cooking, and even more recently, How To Cook Everything, that you could turn to for any recipe or cooking technique.

As partners in a business that transforms chefs’ cookbook dreams into reality, it’s good to share a common vision. It’s also good to like the same kinds of food.
Shared tastes and a love of the culinary world prompted local food experts Melissa Hamilton and Christopher Hirsheimer […]
