This weekend, the Bucks County Taste Dinner Club indulged in some French cuisine. You know what they say, time flies when you’re having fun. We have some great memories now, and thankfully there is a packed week full of more food events to hold us over to the next dinner club event!
Chicken and Ribs. Calling all meat lovers! On Wednesday, March 2, learn essential cooking skills with Chef AJ at the Karlton Cafe, while preparing a chicken and ribs dinner. You’ll cook dry rubbed cured whole chicken, BBQ ribs, traditional cole slaw, and make the perfect french fry. Also, you’ll make your own BBQ sauce without ketchup. It’s $125 per person or $200 for two people, and the class runs from 4 – 6 pm. These are dinners you can take home at the end of class.
Also on Wednesday, more meat. This time it’s served up by the United German Hungarians Club in Feasterville/Trevose. On the first Wednesday of every month, from 5:30 – 7:30 pm, they serve up schnitzel (pork), red cabbage, spaetzle (dumplings), plus salad, bread and butter, coffee or tea, dessert for purchase, and a fully stocked cash bar. It’s $11 for adults and $5 for children. If you’re planning on bringing a large group, call Kathi Galgon at 215.542.0868.
