Bucks Food Calendar: December 2, 2011

This Santa guy really gets around. Even in the digital age. Impressive.

Lots of Christmas-related food activities, like my favorite – “cookie walks” (what a great name, and activity!). Several churches and senior centers are holding cookie sales this week and next, including a cookie bake sale today and tomorrow at Trinity Episcopal Church in Solebury. The Cooking Cottage in Sellersville will hold several classes this week on baking holiday cookies, making a Christmas tea and holiday entertaining. The Kitchen Potager at Linden Hill Gardens in Ottsville is also holding a Gingerbread House Making class. Check the full calendar for details or click on the name of the organization above to go to their websites.

Many festivals too. Check out the Ottsville Holiday Festival also at Linden Hill Gardens. Many of your favorite food vendors and artisans from the Ottsville Farmers’ Market will be there and more. The festival takes place this Saturday and Sunday from 10 am to 4 pm. For more information, see their website.

This Thursday, December 8th two unique events are taking place. The Doylestown Food Co-op will be presenting a showing of the movie, FRESH. The evening is also an opportunity to learn more about the co-op which is being formed to bring local food to a brick-and-mortar location in Doylestown. The screening is happening at Aldie Mansion and is co-sponsored by the Heritage Conservancy and the Bucks County Foodshed Alliance. Tickets are only $10. Come out to see a great movie and support the Doylestown Food Co-op in this fundraising event. For more information about the event see the co-op’s website. Aldie Mansion is at 85 Old Dublin Pike in Doylestown. Doors open at 6:30 pm and the movie will be shown at 7 pm.

An evening with Joanne Caras, author of the Holocaust Survivor Cookbook, will take place at the Elkins Gallery of the Mercer Museum on Thursday, December 8th at 7:30 pm. Caras, who has appeared on CBS, Fox TV and national radio, will share the story of how the cookbook was created, and will relate several of the most moving and miraculous stories that appear in the book. The cookbook is a collection of recipes and stories of over 120 Holocaust survivors. Autographed cookbooks will be available for purchase at the event and a sampling of recipes from the cookbook will be served. Admission is $10. For more information call 215.340.1303 or see the website.
