Bucks Food Calendar: March 4, 2011

It’s sunny and just a tad warmer (mid-40’s…yippee!), so we can kind of pretend Spring is just around the corner, right?

As I peruse the food events for this week, a couple of things pop out at me. Lots of wine and beer tastings! Who knew? And for free, so go for it. Barrel Tapping at Triumph Brewing in New Hope, beer tastings at New Hope Beverage and Phillips’ Fine Wines, happy hour at Hopewell Valley Vineyards, and for all of the local Jersey wineries, this weekend is March Wine & Food Month Kick-Off Weekend. Mardi Gras is coming up this week too, and it’s being celebrated at the Chaddsford Winery Tasting Room in Lahaska by giving Mardi Gras beads for every bottle of wine that is purchased on March 5, 6, 7 or 8. Yeehah.

This weekend has its share of church and firehouse dinners. Stop by St. Anne’s Ukrainian Church in Warrington on Saturday for a very traditional Ukrainian dinner, including their wonderful pierogies. You can buy their homemade pierogies every Wednesday at the church, like I did last week. Call in the morning (between 9 – 12) and pick up in the afternoon (12:30 – 3 pm; later pick-up can be arranged). The pierogies are made that day, based on orders. Local, fresh. I like it. And an easy dinner on Wednesdays!

Save-the-date. Saturday, April 16th yours truly (me) will be the featured guest and guide at a Spring Farm-to-Table Dinner at Crossing Vineyards in Washington Crossing. Just spoke this week with the caterer at the winery, Emily’s Café & Catering, to plan the menu. It is going to be delicious, filled with locally sourced food (yes, even in April!). The five-course gourmet meal will of course be paired with Crossing Vineyards’ internationally-acclaimed wines. For more details and to sign-up, go to their website.
