Bucks Food Calendar: December 5, 2016

Pizza, Liberty Hall Pizza

I’m usually one of those people that gets their holiday shopping done early. This year, instead of sitting back and taking it easy, I’m scrambling trying to find the perfect gift for “so-and-so’s aunt,” mom and dad, grandparents…

That’s why I opt for local, hand-crafted gifts, food baskets, or handmade chocolates and farm-fresh cheese. The options are endless and it shows you put some thought into your purchase (even if you did wait until the last-minute).

Stay tuned for our updated local foodie gift guide post, and below, find some ways to kick back and relax with some good community-friendly food events.


Pizza, Liberty Hall PizzaPass the pizza. It’s time for another one of Liberty Hall Pizza’s guest pizzaiolo events. This Tuesday, enjoy pizzas created by executive chef Fred Moffit of the Centre Bridge Inn, just north of New Hope in Center Bridge. From 5 – 9 pm, he will cook up two decadent pizzas, including a pork belly, balsamic red onion, marinated radicchio, fresh mozzarella with confit garlic tomato sauce pizza, and a lamb meatball, roasted red pepper, arugula-pistachio pesto topped with feta. 

Also at Liberty Hall Pizza this Tuesday, experience a side of jazz with your meal with a new series called “Pizza & Jazz & Music.” Guests can enjoy the sounds of local jazz groups between 5:30 – 8:30 pm. The first group to kick off this new series is The GBC Three, a trio of student musicians. All three musicians are members of the Princeton High School Studio Band. This series continues the following Tuesday, December 13. 

Hamilton's Grill Room

An Italian Christmas dinner. Jim Hamilton of Hamilton’s Grill Room and Drew Abruzzese of the Pineville Tavern will host a cooking class on Tuesday, December 6 beginning at 6:30 pm. It’s a step-by-step open kitchen demonstration, and at the end of the class, you get to eat the tasty four-course dinner. The event is $65 per person inclusive. Contact the restaurant directly or visit them online for more information. 

Valerie Brown's book Also at Hamilton’s Grill Room this week is the monthly Wednesdays for Women networking event. This month, meet Valerie Brown, author of The Road that Teaches: Lessons in Transformation through Travel. In the book, Brown explores the history of the Pilgrimage of El Camino de Santiago, Spain’s epic 1,000 year old journey.

Connect with your inner pilgrim and experience travel stories, while also enjoying a great meal and meeting dynamic women in your community. The main course options are perfect for winter, so choose from oven roasted cod-fish with curry and cauliflower puree, braised short ribs with creamy horseradish polenta, or a grilled winter vegetables plate. The event is $40 including tax and gratuity. For reservations, email your dinner selections to judybrklyn@gmail.com

Grand opening at The Mansion Inn. Kris Tomasulo and Joseph Grande have been working hard to restore the iconic and historic Mansion Inn in New Hope. In October, they opened the chic restaurant, Royal T’s at the Mansion Inn. This week, they’re ready to open up to the community and show off this beautiful example of French-Baroque Victorian architecture. Tomasulo and Grande’s mission is to pay tribute to the historic town of New Hope, while still delivering modern cuisine that is reminiscent of old, long-time local favorites.

The grand opening event this Wednesday is for the press only, but you can see and taste the new Mansion Inn by calling 267.740.7153 for dinner reservations. See their menu here.

Schnitzel, Driftless Appetite

Time for schnitzel!  Join the United German Hungarians in Bensalem for a Schnitzel Night at the club, every first Wednesday of the month. Dinner is $11 for adults and $5 for children, dessert is available for purchase, and there is a fully stocked cash bar. You also get two side dishes (which change every month) plus a salad, bread and butter, coffee or tea. The meal includes schnitzel (pork), red cabbage, and spaetzle (dumplings). The dinner begins at 5:30 pm.

Healthy meal

Eat well for the winter season. The Doylestown Mennonite Church will host a talk on holiday temptations and optimal food for the cold weather, led by Dr. Kristann Heinz. Dr. Heinz will talk about strategies for maintaining good health, energy and weight during the holiday season, which is often filled with temptations (hello, grandma’s cookies!).

Learn about the foods our bodies need to support our immune systems in the winter months. The cost for co-op members of the Doylestown Food Market is $8. The cost for non-members is $10. This event runs from 7 – 9 pm on Thursday, December 8. For more information, click here.

A classic vintage holiday. Marsha Brown New Orleans Restaurant in New Hope is the setting for Chloe Johnston’s fundraising event, “A Classic Vintage Holiday” this Thursday, December 8 from 6 – 9 pm. Shoppers will be able to shop for vintage finds, and enjoy New Orleans cuisine, cocktails and more. There will also be live caroling, a strolling fashion show, and New York City experience raffle round.

The event also provides an opportunity to raise money for the Devereux Foundation. Tickets are $95 for general admission and VIP admission (plus a small processing fee) cost $125. VIP members get a VIP look book, 30 minute early entry shopping discount and Chloe Johnston Experiences swag bag. Purchase your tickets here.

On the radar…

  • The Wrightstown Winter Farmers Market goes indoors! The Wrightstown Farmers Market has always held a shorter market on the 2nd and 4th Saturday of the winter months but this year they will have warm, indoor digs. Join them for all your favorite vendors (and some great gifts too) at the Barn at the Gathering in Penns Park, Wrightstown Township, just half mile up Second Street Pike (Route 232) of the farmers market’s seasonal location. The first winter market is this coming Saturday, December 10 from 10 am to noon, followed by special markets on Saturday, December 17 and Friday, December 23.
  • Bucks County Wine Trail: Kick off the holiday season with the Bucks County Wine Trail on December 10 and December 11. Enjoy wine tastings, cheese, and live music. You’ll be able to purchase special gift baskets and wine packs during this time, too. Check out the Bucks County Wine Trail’s website for more information.
