Bucks Food Calendar: January 15, 2014

Winter Fest 2014It happens to me every year. One minute it’s New Year’s, then by the time I turn around it’s already the end of January. And that means the Lambertville-New Hope Winter Festival.

When it comes to food, Winter Fest is full of it. The first big event takes place this Saturday, January 18, the popular Fire & Ice Ball. It includes food and drinks from local restaurants, music, dancing, ice sculptures and even fire dancers.

Next weekend, the food continues. The Taste of Winter Fest is on Thursday, January 23 at the Eagle Fire House in New Hope. Eleven local restaurants will offer samplings of Chili-Cook-Offtheir menus. On Saturday, January 25, come to Triumph Brewing Company for the annual Beef n Brew from 1 pm to 4 pm with hot roast beef sandwiches, great beer and music.

Get your tickets now for the 18th Annual Chili Cook-Off happening on Sunday, January 26. Bitter Bob’s, Bowman’s Tavern, Fred’s Breakfast, Havana’s, Jamie Hollander and seven other area restaurants will compete for the best chili. To buy tickets to any of the Winter Fest events, see their website here.

Dad's Hat Rye WhiskeyAnother favorite of mine this time of year is the annual whiskey dinner at the Yardley Inn. Every year chef Eben Copple comes up with an interesting and delicious menu, pairing courses with specific whiskeys. In the past they’ve highlighted single malt scotch and bourbon (see our post from a few years ago,  Warming up at the Yardley Inn). This year, on Sunday, January 19, the focus is on rye whiskey, which coincidentally has become my whiskey of choice, especially for a Manhattan. Of course, Dad’s Hat Rye Whiskey will be served, our Bucks County rye distillery in Bristol. Dad’s Hat Founder and Distiller Herman Mihalich will be at the event too, answering any questions about this great local rye whiskey. Angels Envy and Sazerac rye whiskeys will also be represented. To see the enticing menu, go to the Inn’s website or get more details on our full Food Events calendar. [To learn more about Dad’s Hat, see our previous post, Rye whiskey comes back home.]
