It seems we’ll have some more fall days after all, despite the snowstorm last week. The snow is gone, although many people in Upper Bucks are still without power. Let’s hope they get it back soon! Meanwhile this weekend looks seasonally appropriate – sunny with temps in the 50’s.

But it is November. I’ve noticed that Thanksgiving-themed events are creeping into the calendar. The Cooking Cottage in Sellersville is offering a “Thanksgiving done right” class twice this coming week, once on this Monday evening at 6:30 pm and again on this Thursday at 10 am. If you’ve never taken a cooking class at this great little “school”, treat yourself. Classes are held in a charming cottage in a teaching kitchen followed by the dinner that has been demonstrated.  Old York Cellars in nearby Ringoes, NJ will have Maddalena’s Catering pairing samples of their Thanksgiving dinners with Old York Cellars wines this Saturday from 12 – 5 pm. Carlow Cookery is offering a class on Holiday Breads on November 15th as well as a free Thanksgiving cooking class on November 12th at 12 pm. And if you want a fresh turkey for the big day, see our previous post on where to get it in Bucks.

And on November 5th some of us celebrate Guy Fawkes Day, a British holiday honoring a true radical (Will someone explain this to me? It seems very, well, un-British.). If you want to observe the holiday in a culinary way, swing on over to the Yardley Inn on this Saturday for a Guy Fawkes Tribute. A special British-themed menu will be served for lunch and dinner, including Toad in a Hole. I say, what a capital idea!

This Wednesday the Spinnerstown Hotel will be holding a Trappiste Beer Dinner featuring Chimay Beer. The hotel is a quaint tavern and restaurant in the northwestern corner of Bucks County. They also hold a “Meet the Brewer” night on the first Wednesday of each month. Every Saturday they feature a different beer – “something new, odd, or just released “- from Shangy’s ,”the Beer Authority,” in Emmaus. Beer is very important at the “Spinny.” Worth a ride on a beautiful fall day.

Do you love cookbooks? It seems to be a guilty pleasure for many of us. Now there’s a place for you to indulge your addiction. The Literate Epicures meet on the second Tuesday of each month at the Newtown Bookshop to discuss a cookbook and bring recipes cooked from the book. Cookbooks and eating. Sounds good to me. See their blog for more information. They will be meeting this Tuesday, November 8th.

    Guy Fawkes Night began as a celebration of the thwarting of the Gunpowder Plot (which Fawkes was a part of). Now it’s an excuse to have a bonfire and fireworks on a cold November night.

  2. Thanks, Nick. I knew the former and suspected the latter!
