Bucks Food Calendar: June 4, 2014

It’s another gorgeous forecast for this weekend. How I love these June days. I think back fondly to them in July and August when we are wallowing in the humidity and heat. (And, no, I will never wish it was winter, even in the midst of the heat!]. What’s on this week? A BBQ competition, summer cooking and pick-your-own strawberries.

2014_que for the troops_logo_webBarbecue for a really good cause. Come out this Saturday for Que For The Troopsan annual event with a barbecue competition, car show, military and antique vehicle show, live music, craft vendors, food, and kids entertainment. All proceeds benefit Liberty U.S.O., which serves Philadelphia and South Jersey.

Summer cooking. Want to add some new recipes to your repertoire this summer? Here are some interesting and fun cooking classes happening in the next few weeks.

Tomorrow, Thursday, June 5, sign up for Great Grilling for Heart Healthy Meals at Carlow Cookery in Doylestown (more info here). Casa Casale is also offering a class tomorrow on Roman Classics Cooking at their store in Peddler’s Village. The menu includes Braised Jerusalem Artichokes, Porchetta alla Romana, Gnocchi alla Romana, and Strawberry Gelato. For more information, see their Facebook page.

Cocktails_umbrellasThe Cooking Cottage in Sellersville is hosting a Summer Cocktail Party Cooking Class on this Friday. This should be fun. All of their classes include 1.5 hours of instruction followed by a meal with the recipes just demonstrated. This class focuses on finger food recipes, like  Pizzettes with Fontina, Tomato, Basil & Prosciutto and Grilled Farmer’s Market Quesadillas, and cocktails, like Green Tea Mint Mojitos and Blueberry Lavender Vodka Spritzers. On June 19, the Italian Summer class will explore no-oven-required Italian dishes like grilled pizzas, Prosciutto-Wrapped Grilled Stuffed Chicken Breasts and fresh pasta.

Start getting ready for Father’s Day at the Vintage Grille in Fountainville on June 10 with the latest in their series of cooking classes, The Cook & Cork: Father’s Day BBQ. The class will  feature a cooking demonstration along with wine pairing and meal. Topics include how to select the best meat, marinades, sauces and rubs, and using woods for flavorings. The menu looks great: Homemade BBQ Sauce, Aromatic dry rub, Soy and Honey-marinated Flank Steak, Cedar Plank Salmon, Grilled Heirloom Vegetables, and Grilled Pineapple with Coconut Sorbet. Click here for more information and to register.
