Bucks Food Calendar: April 12, 2013

Everything is getting greener and it is so welcome. Our magnolia tree is showing its pink flowers and the pear tree is doing its spring thing. And the daffodils!

There is a lot going on this week in Bucks County. Here are some of the highlights.

Dine Doylestown logo_cropDoylestown will be celebrating their first Restaurant Week this week. Dine Doylestown will take place from Sunday, April 14 through Saturday, April 20. Almost 30 restaurants are participating with prix fixe lunches and dinners. If you’ve got a favorite restaurant in Doylestown, it’s almost guaranteed to be on the list! See their website for a full list of restaurants and how to make reservations.

Wine dinners. The Black Bass is hosting Jeremy Kreck, owner of Mill Creek Vineyards and Winery in Sonoma County, California, as the guest speaker at a dinner tonight, which will feature five courses paired with premium wines. It is $85 per person. I’m not sure if they still have seats, but I’d give a try. You can reach them at 215.297.9260. On Thursday evening April 18, the Yardley Inn will also have a five-course dinner with wine pairings from Sebastiani Vineyards & Winery, also for $85 per person. Call them at 215.493.3800. Both menus look great.

Community breakfasts and suppers. Oh my. There are many this weekend. Tonight there is a Spaghetti Dinner at the Delaware Valley Fire Company in Erwinna. Tomorrow, Saturday, stop by the Centenary United Methodist Church in Lambertville for a Spaghetti Dinner & Jewelry Sale. In West Amwell, the firehouse is putting on their Roast Beef Dinner, also on Saturday. On Sunday, the American Legion Post in Doylestown will host a Pancake Breakfast, as will the Upper Black Eddy Fire Company.

Philly Farm & Food Fest Although it’s not strictly Bucks County, this Sunday the 2nd Annual Philly Farm & Food Fest will be taking place at the Convention Center downtown. If you are into local food, this is the place to be. Over 120 exhibitors will be there representing farms, fisheries, dairies, ice cream makers (including Bucks County’s own oWowCow), distilleries, bread, pasture-raised meats, markets and more. I just did an interview (article coming soon) with Philly CowShare, a unique business that sources grass-fed beef and delivers it to you. They will be at the Fest and you can buy sampler packs right there. See their website for more information. The event begins at 11 am and goes until 4 pm. Cost is $15 per person, children under 12 years old are free. You can buy tickets online and discounted parking is available.

Looking ahead. The Bucks County Chapter of the Fox Chase Cancer Center Board of Associates will be hosting their annual gala on Saturday, April 20. This year the theme is April in Vienna. The event will be reminiscent of a night at the Vienna Opera House and will include cocktails, dinner, and live and silent auctions. Violinist Solomiya Ivakhiv, principal violinist of the Chamber Orchestra of Philadelphia, will perform in a string quartet. Proceeds will go towards research on pancreatic cancer. Go to their website for ticket information to support this important cause.

There will be a Rhone Wine Dinner at the Vintage Grille in Fountainville next Monday, April 22. To reserve and pay for the dinner ($55 pp), go to their website. At the Yardley Inn on Wednesday, April 24, Chef Eben Copple and Dr. Wendy Warner will offer a 3-course meal focusing on “Eating to Boost Your Immunity.” It is $65 per person. See their website for menu details and contact information.
