Lynne Goldman and Mark Feffer, who live in the old railroad village of Wycombe, close to the center of Pennsylvania’s Bucks County, began Bucks County Taste in November 2008. Since then we have published over 1500 articles about local food in Bucks County and nearby.
We created this site because we like food and the stories behind it, and because the Delaware River Valley (Bucks and nearby counties across the river) is populated by an amazing group of farmers, chefs, writers, vintners, ice cream makers, bartenders, and firefighters who cook up pretty good pancakes one or two Sundays of the year.
Let’s start a blog,” Mark suggested in the fall of 2008, to which Lynne’s reply was, “What’s a blog?”
Lynne, who publishes the site, now knows what a blog is – and then some (Mark doesn’t write much anymore; just tags along for the food).
In addition to uncovering anything having to do with local food, and telling those stories, she loves being able to support our local food economy. Her hidden passion is cheese, especially those that go well with single-malt scotch or bourbon.
Mark is a journalist and novelist who sees no reason not to grill steaks simply because it’s icing outside. Our other team members are Winston and Malky, two miniature schnauzers who will eat anything.
A word about our philosophy. We decided from the start that this would be a positive blog. We don’t view ourselves as self-appointed food critics. We want to share the good things happening in Bucks County and nearby.
So, if we go somewhere or eat something we don’t like – we just don’t write about it. It’s only our opinion, after all. We certainly don’t want to damage someone’s livelihood. As Mark says, no one sets out with the goal of making a bad restaurant, or bar, or wine. That said, if we haven’t written about a place, it may just be because we haven’t gotten around to it.
