Talk about a blustery weekend! The weather folks are saying this is going to be a very cold April, so better hold onto those jackets a little longer. Consider making something warm yet light this week, like the detox soup I’m making at home in the crock pot.

If you check out Bucks County Taste’s recipes, you’ll find plenty of options to keep the chill out. And if that’s not enough, this week there is much to do. There are new spring menus and happy hours, a chef cook-off, and other spring treats.

The Tubby Olive and a variety of vendors from different areas in health, wellness and fitness will be participating. Come to this event for tastings, information and healthy recipes. 

Pork Schnitzel
Schnitzel Night. Join the United German Hungarians in Bensalem for a Schnitzel Night at the club, every first Wednesday of the month. Dinner is $10 for adults and $5 for children, dessert is available for purchase and there is a fully stocked cash bar.

The meal includes schnitzel (pork), red cabbage, and spaetzle (dumplings). Reservations aren’t necessary but if you’re planning on bringing a large group, call Kathi Galgon at 215.542.0868.

Pie, Karlton Cafe

Spring treats. March is over, and so are the March specials at Karlton Cafe in Quakertown. No worries, the cafe will have their April menu available on Thursday, April 7. What else is new at Karlton Cafe? They now have gluten-free, dairy-free or vegetarian dessert options along with their regular desserts.

Small Plate, Mojito Cuba Caribe

Chef cook-off. Do you enjoy watching those cooking competitions on the food network? Then you’ll like this event at Mojito Cuba Caribe Restaurant in New Hope. On Thursday, starting at 6 pm, there will be a head-to-head battle between two Chefs. The chefs will each create three small plates of their choice, only using the same ingredient in their featured entrée dish.

Customers get to vote on each plate based on taste, creativity, and presentation. The choice to participate in this event is a fixed price $25 which includes six small plates (three by each chef), one house wine, domestic beer, or house mixed drink.
