Bucks Food Calendar: January 28, 2015

Champagne & Chocolate

Whether you’re getting ready for the big game or just hanging, this week is full of fun and interesting foodie activities. Enjoy!

More than Q barbecueThe Super Bowl. Why not bring in barbecue for the game? See our post, Super Bowl BBQ, listing local BBQ places. Need some beer to go with the barbecue? See our food guide, the Bucks County Beer Map, for a listing all the Bucks County stores selling a great selection of beer.

Here’s an option that will please fans and sport-indifferent parties alike. This Saturday, January 31 from 1 pm to 5:30 pm, the Chaddsford Winery Tasting Room at Peddler’s Village is hosting a Super Bowl Game Day Wine & Cheese event. It’s not actually on the Big Day, but who’s splitting hairs? If you go, you’ll get to taste their wines, hard ciders, and delicious cheesy snacks that may give you some inspiration for game day.

Get some laughs. How about some wine paired with comedy? Old York Cellars is hosting a Wine & Comedy Night on Saturday, January 31 starting at 7:30 pm. The night will be hosted by award-winning comedian Helene Angley; featuring guest comedians John Zeigler, Johnny Watson and Marc Kaye. Guests can bring their own food and purchase wine on-site by the glass or the bottle.

Fermented Foods

Kitchen D.I.Y. There are two classes this weekend that will teach you some old school kitchen skills, giving you the potential to forego buying some major pantry items in favor of making them yourself. Start with the Pickling and Fermentation Class at Snipes Farm and Education Center on Saturday, January 31 from 10 am to 12 pm. Brad Berry, farmer and home fermenter, will lead participants through making their own sauerkraut, yogurt, and pickled vegetables, using inspiration from the book Wild Fermentation. Health benefits and food history of the techniques will be included.

Or if you love the feeling a homemade soup gives you on a cold winter day, go to Blue Moon Acres in Penningtion for their Soup’s On! Stocks and Broth Workshop, also on Saturday, January 31 from 10 am to 2 pm. This hands-on workshop, led by Farm to Jars founder Marian Bolum will teach you the basics of bone broth, how to create delicious vegetarian and/or meat stocks, and how to preserve your stocks. You’ll also get to enjoy a farm fresh lunch and take home a jar of soup at the end of the workshop. [Read more about Marian and Farm to Jars in our post here].

Champagne & ChocolateLearn about the finer foods in life. On Tuesday, February 3, Jim Hamilton’s Atelier Cooking Class series continues with a Valentine’s Day themed class, Champagne & Chocolate, at 6:30 pm. Jim Hamilton of Hamilton’s Grill Room invites participants to his studio to learn how to create truly special menus. This one includes fresh shucked oysters three ways, roast quail with mole sauce, and a dessert of Laurie’s Chocolates and black cherry balsamic chocolate truffles. Each course is paired with a different champagne or champagne cocktail. This would be a great early Valentine’s activity for hands-on couples, or crafty partners can hone their skills in preparation for the actual holiday on February 14.

Last but not least, Brick Farm Market in Hopewell is hosting a series of Cheese Classes. This Tuesday, February 3, the topic is Winter Cheeses & Raclette. Michael Lemmerling, Brick Farm Market’s own Chevalier du Taste Fromage, will lead you through 5 cheeses and 1 charcuterie while discussing the best food and wine pairings from around the world.  Guests are welcome to bring their own wine or beer to accompany the cheese and Michel will post his recommended pairing for the event ahead of time.

Collard greensHere’s what you’ll find at area farmers’ markets:  Apples, beets, butternut squash, carrots, celeriac (celery root), cheese pumpkins, collard greens, herbs, kale, kohlrabi, leeks, micro-greens, mushrooms, napa cabbage, onions, potatoes, rutabaga, salad greens, strawberries (frozen), sweet potatoes, swiss chard, tatsoi, turnips, watermelon radishes, and wheatgrass.
