Brrrr. It’s cold out! A nice weekend to curl up by the fireplace…after raking up all the leaves, of course.
Some of the highlights this week?
Farmers’ markets that are saying goodbye and who’s sticking around until Thanksgiving. Oysters. Yes, oysters. And where you can get ‘em in Bucks and nearby (specials too!) Firehouse breakfasts [...]
There’s nothing I like better than eating that also benefits a good cause. Three events are coming up this weekend.
The 2nd Annual Que For The Troops will be a National BBQ Cook-off, and a BBQ Brethren event. On this Saturday, May 19 and Sunday, May 20, teams will be barbecuing pork, chicken [...]
As mentioned on Bucks County Taste in the past, the Doylestown Food Club is a group of 50 or so households who have joined together to buy from local producers on a biweekly basis. The club has been operating for over a year but in order to keep going—let alone grow!—they [...]
Happy Mama’s Day Weekend!
Mixed weather this weekend – beautiful today (Friday), some showers tomorrow, and cooler but sunny on Sunday. Not bad. Tonight is First Friday in Doylestown, so I think I see much sitting outside and sipping/nibbling going on around that town.
You can also swing over to Triumph [...]
Beginning May 8th, Crossroads Bake Shop will be selling their delicious bread and baked goods at the Stockton Farmers’ Market. For all you New Jersey folks who may not be familiar with this well-known and much-loved bakery in Doylestown – oh, are you in for a treat!
Marcia Durgin, co-owner and [...]
In case you haven’t noticed, we always list cooking classes going on in Bucks County on the Food Events calendar. I am amazed by the number of varied, delicious courses to choose from, and locations all around the county.
Right now, you can sign up for courses offered through the Community [...]
Very upsetting news. Basically Burgers, the wonderful burger place in Doylestown, is getting squeezed – and maybe even put out of business. One way or another, they are being forced out by the end of April by their landlord, who has chosen a Subway franchise over Basically Burgers. Just what Doylestown needs.
It was a cold and overcast day when I stopped by Peter Sliwka’s booth at the New Hope Farmers’ Market last November. “You have to taste this honey,” said Susan Pierson, the market’s manager. No arm-twisting needed. I’ve become a fan of local, raw, unprocessed honey ever since I heard it might help [...]
Slow Food Bucks County now has a Facebook page. Check it out! Slow Food is an idea, a way of living and a way of eating. It is a global, grassroots movement with thousands of members that links the pleasure of food with a commitment to community and the environment.

I picked up this story on the “wires” (a.k.a. Google Reader). Thanks to Michael Klein at philly.com for – dare I say it – “the scoop.” Ooka, which owns Japanese restaurants in Doylestown, Montgomeryville and Willow Grove, and Komé in Saucon Valley, is kicking off Sushi Week in honor of a really big [...]

Sushi! The term brings glee and delight to me but can be very intimidating to others. I’ve created a short guide of terms, sushi etiquette and restaurant suggestions for those interested in taking the dive (pun intended).
My first suggestion is to [...]
Update: The Doylestown Food Co-op is up and running, using local producers and drawing on the vast offerings of Neshaminy Valley Natural Foods too. The co-op has already had their first distribution and is steaming ahead! Learn more at their Meetup site: www.meetup.com/Doylestown-PA-Food-Buying-Club-Co-op/
Just caught this article in the Intelligencer this morning [...]
I don’t want anyone to think I’ve been slacking off since we published the first installment of Bars We Like back in April. The challenge of this column, I’ve found, isn’t the research, but the fact that once we find a place that meets our criteria – which includes good people, good food, [...]
For an enlightening and provocative inside look at how our food is being produced in the U.S. food industry and who’s “in the kitchen,” the new documentary Food, Inc. is showing at the County Theater, 20 E. State St. in Doylestown through this weekend.
The film opened in New York [...]
It’s a little soggy right now out in our local strawberry fields but the next week or so may be your last chance to eat these wonderful strawberries so get out there as soon as the sun pops back out.
We stopped by Shady Brook Farm on Sunday and I picked up their flyer, “Tips [...]
