It’s really starting to feel like spring! Yes, even with the rain. Things are starting to perk up in Bucks County food too. This week, there are tons of classes, a food festival, special dinners, firehouse breakfasts, and more! Read on to start planning your fun.

Classes. Join Jim Hamilton in his studio at 6:30 pm on Thursday evening, April 9, for his Jim Hamilton’s Atelier Cooking Program as he demonstrates his favorite dishes, this month with the help of Hamilton’s Grill Room’s Executive Chef, Mark Miller. The menu for the evening includes Jim Hamilton’s classic paella, Mark’s cod chowder, restaurant style pizza from your home oven, and Jim’s mustard vinaigrette. Laurie Douglas of Laurie’s Chocolates will also be there, serving black cherry balsamic chocolate truffles for dessert.

Paella

Casa Casale’s Italian cooking classes continue with their Umbria Cooking Class at 6:30 pm on Thursday, April 9, featuring Gobbi alla Casa Casale logoperugina (cardoons fried & served with meat and tomato sauce), Agnello Arrosto with lentils (lamb roasted with garlic, rosemary, and sage), Spaghetti alla Norcina (served with black truffles sauce lightly kissed with flavors of anchovy and garlic ), and Lover’s lemon-spice cake.

Peeved by deer in your garden? Shady Brook Farm is offering a free deer prevention gardening class, “Oh Deer” with Joanna Flower, at 10 am on Saturday, April 11.

Shady Brook Farm’s post in central bucks, The Market at DelVal, is also offering a free Herb Gardening Class on Saturday, April 11 at 11 am.

Meatballs. The Free Library of New Hope Solebury is getting creative with their fundraising. The Meatball Mashup starts at 5:30 pm on Tuesday, April 14, and involves four area chefs – Max Hansen, caterer and owner of the Carversville Store, DiNapoli Italian Deli at Klines Court in Lambertville, Dish Catering of Frenchtown, NJ, and a local gourmet- preparing their favorite meatball recipes to tempt the palates of diners who will choose the Best Meatball for 2015. The fun takes place at John & Peter’s on Main Street in New Hope. Reservations recommended.

Firehouse Breakfast. Satisfy your craving for a Classic Firehouse Breakfast at the Upper Black Eddy Fire Company this Sunday, April 12 between 7:30 am and 12 pm.

Breakfast

Food Festival. The Philly Farm & Food Festival is at the Convention Center in Philadelphia from 11 am to 4 pm this Sunday, April 12. Hosted by PASA (Pennsylvania Association for Sustainable Agriculture) and Fair Food, a Philadelphia non-profit dedicated to sustainable agriculture, the event brings two things that Bucks County is great at – fresh, local ingredients and creative chefs, together for a day of food sampling and awesome workshops. We’ve given a run down of some of the fun things to expect here: 2015 Philly Farm & Food Fest.

Planning ahead. The Bucks County Wine Trail tour days aren’t until May, but tickets sell out in advance (the deadline to purchase tickets for the first weekend, the Northern Tour of Bucks County, is May 14). The Bucks County Wine Trail is a self-guided tour that you can take Bucks County Wine Trailyear round, but May 17 and May 24 are special. Local chefs and caterers have partnered with participating wineries to offer food samples along with the wine tastings to celebrate the occasion. The trail is split into two parts, the Northern Tour (May 17) and the Southern Tour (May 24). More information here.

There are also special dinners, more classes, wine tastings, and markets going on this weekend, so be sure to check out the rest of our food calendar below!
