4th Bucks Bacon and Beer Highlights
Did you miss out on this year’s bacon and beer event at Triumph Brewing Co.? Sorry you couldn’t come, but we have some highlights to share with you! There were 14 local food purveyors in attendance, bacon goodies were given out as raffle prizes, and everybody left with the sweet taste of salty bacon and full-bodied beers on their lips.
Our Bucks County Taste editorial assistant was on the prowl, talking to guests about their favorite bacon goodies. Everything was delectable but we will say foodies loved the crispy bacon from Haring Brothers in Doylestown, ghost pepper sausage from Gerome’s Sausage in Levittown, the aged cheeses from Bobolink Dairy & Bakehouse and the chocolate bacon bark from Pierre’s Chocolates.
Keep in mind, we have a few awesome dinner club events coming up, so no worries if you missed out on this one.
Farm-to-Table Dinner at Comfortfood & Kitchenette
Sunday, March 26, 2017 ∼ 6 pm
Join us on March 26 for an exquisitely prepared, seasonal and locally sourced dinner.
Comfortfood & Kitchenette is a cozy, farm-to-table BYOB restaurant, tucked away on a back street, in an innocuous block of stores in Morrisville, PA. It’s one of Morrisville’s best kept secrets. The locals know about it but I think everyone else needs to know about it too.
Comfortfood specializes in fresh, creative and seasonal cuisine with ingredients sourced from local farms. The menu includes dishes that meat-lovers, vegetarians and vegans can all enjoy.
