Things are starting to pick up this week in Bucks County, which means there is plenty to do and plenty to eat. Try out a cooking class or go back in time to 1989 with some special lunch items. You can even learn how to have a healthier new year at a complimentary dinner.
It’s finally the New Year, and you might have a list of resolutions you’d like to tackle. I say add this resolution to the top of the list: try something new. Why not go out and experience a new restaurant? Going to the gym can certainly be a part of 2016, but don’t forget to eat and enjoy Bucks […]
Martine Bertin-Peterson has the best of both worlds. She organizes amazing culinary trips to France, focusing on food and wine, and she teaches how to make simple, Mediterranean-inspired dishes in her cooking classes here in Bucks County. In short, she eats well wherever she is.
I don’t know about you, but among my friends, we […]
America has been called a beautiful land with natural resources, colonization, and industrialization fueled by the idea that land can fulfill our “American Dream.” But as we move toward the future, is the American dream still sustainable? At Delaware Valley University this week, their annual sustainability symposium kicks-off with a food truck […]
This week, experience different foods and drinks from around the world without actually leaving the comforts of Bucks County. Interested in Italian that’s a little more unique? Try some “artsy” pizza. Or, perhaps you aren’t even hungry and you just want to taste beer like you’re in Germany? There’s all that and more this week.

On Saturday, June 7, come out to the Garces Foundation Summer Barbecue at Luna Farm in Ottsville. The 40-acre farm is the private home of Chef Jose Garces and his wife, Dr. […]
Brenda Slack may come from a multi-generational farming family, but in many ways, she’s the first.
“Farming has always been in my blood,” explains Slack, a former mental health therapist. “I always had a garden. I needed it as my therapy outside of work. I like to be in the sun, in the rain, in […]
I meet more and more people these days who are thinking more carefully about the type of food they put into their bodies, not just how much. Be it organic, gluten-free, whole foods, vegetarian or vegan, people are paying more attention to what they eat, and how it affects their body and general well-being.
The average age of the American farmer is 57 years old and rising, according to the US Department of Agriculture. Meet Tricia Borneman and Tom Murtha, Bucks County farmers who are bucking this trend.
Borneman and Murtha run Blooming Glen Farm, a 35 acre farm in Blooming Glen, Upper Bucks County. It is […]
The word for this week – and month – is HARVEST. Everywhere I look on the food calendar there are harvest festivals going on. Farm-to-table dinners, wine festivals and farmers’ markets bursting with beautiful vegetables. Wycombe Vineyards is even calling for volunteer grape-pickers to help bring in their grape harvest (Sunday, 9/15, lunch […]
Growing up in Philadelphia with a high school history teacher as a father and observing the nation’s bicentennial in 1976, it was easy to get a little tired of “history.” It’s all around us. Which makes it all the more fun when someone comes across a new pocket of history that was waiting to be […]
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 […]
It’s common at this time of year to look back and reflect on the year that has been. It’s been a good one for Bucks County food. I’ve been privileged to write about many interesting people and great food. As I reviewed my posts, I decided that rather than do a “best of” piece, I’d […]
