By this time of year, I’m yearning for local vegetables. We were recently out in San Francisco and we visited the Ferry Building Farmers’ Market. Wow. I know they are a month or two ahead of us, but, wow. Artisanal cheeses, vegetables, strawberries, oysters, baked goods, meat and porchetta sandwiches.
But…many local farmers are using [...]
by guest blogger Rich Baringer,
Last year I wrote a bit about some of our long-standing Easter traditions that center around food. They are based on the religious meaning of the holiday and date from pre-Christian days.
But come on. We really know what many people think of when they [...]
There is so much going on food-wise in Bucks County that almost from the beginning we started doing posts on where to find stuff – everything from meat, ice cream, BYOBs, breakfast, bars, BBQ, lunch places and even, waterside restaurants.

Strawberries still abound and overcast skies are the best conditions for picking it yourself, says personal chef, Rich Baringer, in his article on where to find strawberries in Bucks and how to pick them. [...]
Ok. I’ll say it. This is killing me. Sitting inside at the computer on this absolutely magnificent day. This is going to be short, folks. The backyard is calling to me. Also, there is lots going on this weekend. Here are the highlights…
Welcome Plumsteadville Grange Market, opening for the season tomorrow, Saturday, June [...]
As it turns out, Didi Mercier and I have known each other for a long time. Something clicked when I saw her name. That’s because Didi Mercier has been making delicious, sweet things for a long time. We actually worked at an auto parts store company over 15 years ago [...]
It all started with drinks, chocolate drinks to be specific. Laurie Douglass got into chocolate through hot cocoa. Then it was chocolate making classes, and more classes, and, well, you know how it goes. Nine years later and a couple of states later, she’s making four kinds of hot cocoa, buttercrunch toffee, caramels, truffles and [...]
