Bucks Food Calendar: January 16, 2016

Hewn Spirits

This weekend, I introduced my family to Indian cuisine, followed by traditional Mexican flavors. I thought they would be hesitant. But I guess we all have the foodie gene because they tried everything I served them. My motto has always been, “If you don’t try it at least once, you’ll never know if you like it.” Plus, what’s the harm in trying something new?

This week Bucks County offers you plenty of opportunities to try something new. Sample organic cheeses, get lunch at a farm-to-table Italian eatery, and sip some of Hewn Spirits while you eat a special prix-fixe menu.

Cheese, Trickling Springs Creamery
Cheese tasting. 
The Doylestown Food Market is your destination for all things local. This Monday, you can sample some locally made organic cheeses from Trickling Springs Creamery. The farm’s cheeses are made from raw milk from grass-fed, pastured cows. All cheese made from raw milk is aged at least 60 days, so no worries. But by not pasteurizing the milk, the cheese captures all the nuances of terroir. The tasting is free and cheeses are 20% off during the actual tasting. 

Learn more about local artisan cheeses here. Also, see our map of local cheese makers in Bucks, Hunterdon and Mercer Counties.

Community dinners and lunches. There are plenty of free dinners and lunches offered throughout the week in Bucks County and nearby. It’s a great chance to meet your fellow community members and have a simple yet comforting meal. Here’s what you can enjoy this week:

  • Presbyterian Church of Deep Run, Perkasie: Enjoy a free dinner at 5:30 pm on Monday, January 16. Dinner this month is pork and sauerkraut with mashed potatoes and dessert too.
  • Centenary United Methodist Church, Lambertville, NJ: A free lunch open to all. Great food made with local, often organic, ingredients. Come meet your neighbors! Lunch is on Wednesday, January 18 from 12 – 2 pm.
  • Christ Community Bible Church, Perkasie: Enjoy a free community dinner at 5:30 pm on Wednesday, January 18.

Table talk: Join the conversation. The monthly “Table Talk” conversation at Caleb’s American Kitchen is this Wednesday, January 18 at 6 pm. The restaurant welcomes local distillery Hewn Spirits with a special tasting dinner. Hewn manager Dana Weddell will guide you through each course with a welcome cocktail made with Red Barn Rye Whiskey. The prix-fixe menu includes many of Hewn’s products. The event is $35 per person (plus tax and gratuity). The full menu can be found here.

The Craftery

Wednesdays with Women. This week’s Wednesdays for Women event features the “Real Housewives of Bucks County,” at Hamilton’s Grill Room. This event includes a night of networking with The Craftery, a place for women where their DIY ideas led them to star on ABC and work with designer Nate Burkus.

Each evening of Wednesdays for Women begins at 6:30 pm with a twenty-minute presentation followed by a three course dinner, including coffee or tea.

Speaking of the menu…You can choose from a few unique and seasonal dishes like vegetarian white bean soup or endive salad with red beets and walnuts (for an appetizer). The main course includes sirloin of lamb or grilled North Atlantic salmon, or sacchettini alla vodka. Yum! Email the restaurant directly to make your reservation and to pick your dinner selection.

Also at Hamilton’s Grill Room this week Jim Hamilton will host his atelier cooking class. This month, the theme is a happy new year dinner party, where he will conduct a step-by-step open kitchen demonstration. Afterwards, you get to enjoy the delectable four-course he prepared. Contact the restaurant directly to reserve (credit card required). The meal is $75 per person inclusive.

McCaffrey's Food Market
What’s hot, what’s not? 
McCaffrey’s Market in Yardley is hosting a free nutrition event. Join registered dietitian Jill Kwasny to discuss food trends for the new year. The free program will be held in the market at the Edgewood Village Shopping Center. RSVP to nutritionist@mccaffreys.com.

Louie's Old Mill
New dining hours.
 
Louie’s Old Mill in Hatboro is now open for lunch Tuesday through Friday from 11 am – 2 pm, as Chef Lee Bauer introduces his farm-to-cucina lunch menu and his Sunday supper prix fixe, too. The lunch menu includes favorites like calamari baked mac & cheese, roasted pork, and fish tacos.

*Even though this restaurant is in Montgomery County, we figured this old and historic mill was worth the visit.
