Bucks Food Calendar: Jan 2, 2018

Well, the holidays are over. It’s back-to-school, back-to-work, back-to-my-before-December diet (you know, the kind that consists of mostly vegetables and less cookies and cake). That doesn’t mean the festive fun has to end. We’ve gathered up a few holiday events that you can check out early this month, and added a few recipes and things to look forward to in the new year. Bring it on 2018! 

A Taste of Honey for the New Year

Why is some honey light and others dark? Why do they taste different?

Come to the Bucks County Foodshed Alliance‘s Annual Meeting and Potluck this Wednesday evening to learn more about local honey and the health of our local bees. Local beekeeper, Chuck Pressler of Bucks County Apiaries, will lead an educational talk and honey tasting.

The honey Q&A will begin promptly at 6 pm. The potluck meal begins at 7 pm and a short business meeting is held at 7:40 pm over dessert. Please bring a main, side, dessert, or beverages to share and your own eating utensils. Locally sourced ingredients are encouraged! For more information, click here.

Looking for other family friendly activities or things to do and eat in beautiful Bucks County? Check out our “buying local” guides – including libations, dairy and cheese farms, wineries, and more.

Healthy Dishes to Kick-Off the New Year

After the hustle and bustle of the holidays, it’s nice to get back into the swing of things — especially when it comes to healthy, delicious home cooked meals. Even if “dieting” isn’t on your 2018 list of resolutions, you can still fuel your body with warm dishes that are packed with vitamins and food that’s just plain good for you.

Here are some of our better-than-Pinterest picks to get you started!

Experience the Best Local Cuisine in 2018

Liberty Hall Pizza_proscuitto pizza

We always say, you don’t need to travel to a big city to experience incredible food. The Bucks County Taste Dinner Club wants to introduce you to all this with special, exclusive dining events at some of the best restaurants in Bucks County and nearby. In 2018, we have a few things cooking up — so sign up now and be the first to know about the next big event near you.

12th Annual Bucks County Holiday Treefest

Traditionally, families take down their Christmas and holiday trees when the new year begins. But there is still a holiday treefest that you can enjoy this week if you can’t bear to see the trees get tossed to the curb! Bucks County visitors and residents are invited to come in and take in the spirit of the holidays — where uniquely themed trees are on display at the Bucks County Visitor Center. The last day to see the trees is January 4. PECO has generously been the exclusive sponsor of the Bucks County Holiday TreeFest.

2017 Holiday Light Show

Shady Brook Farm

Experience the joy of more than three million lights illuminating acres of farmland at Shady Brook Farm’s Holiday Light Show. Better hurry, the last day to encounter whimsical displays and characters as you drive through in the comfort of your own car ends on January 7.

The two-mile trail takes about 20 minutes to drive through if you’re taking your time to enjoy the sights (on a non-busy night).
