Bucks Food Calendar: December 7, 2012

Still have gift shopping to do? Don’t let it get you down. You can have fun too with the ton of food events going on this week in Bucks County and nearby.

For starters, check out the Ottsville Holiday Festival this weekend. Over two dozen vendors will be there offering everything from chocolates, wine, artisanal cheese, baked goods, preserves, gourmet foods, ceramics, jewelry, handcrafts and much more. The festival takes place at Linden Hill Gardens on Route 611 in Ottsville.

Have a wine lover on your gift list? Wineries on both sides of the river are having holiday wine celebrations this weekend – the Bucks County Wine Trail and the Delaware River Valley Wine Trail (Jersey side). Individual wineries will have promotions and holiday shopping, many are showcasing special wines – spice wines, ports, etc. – for this time of year. At the Spice Up Your Holidays event at Sand Castle Winery in Erwinna contestants in a cooking contest will be offering their dishes using Sand Castle’s famous Alpine Spice wine. Yours truly will be one of the judges (it’s a tough job but someone has to do it). The event begins at 1 pm. There will be lots of tasty food and, of course, lots of Alpine Spice wine.

On Sunday, stop by Trompa Wine Bar in Doylestown to enjoy a glass of wine and support a good cause. The Central Bucks Rotary is hosting a Holiday Fundraising Party to raise money for the Hunyh family who lost their 9 year old daughter in a fatal car crash over the Thanksgiving holiday. A memorial fund in Holly Huynh’s name has been established at the Univest Bank. There will be raffles, prizes, and Bobby Simone’s will contribute a portion of the proceeds to the cause. The event begins at 6 pm with a jazz performance at 8 pm. No cover.

The County Theater and the Vine & Fig Tree Bistro (right across State Street) are teaming up for a special Christmas evening. The theater will be showing the classic version of Dicken’s holiday classic “A Christmas Carol” followed by dinner at the Vine & Fig Tree. But this is not just any dinner. It will be a recreation of the meal served at the end of the movie, a real British Christmas dinner: a table overflowing with roast fowl – both turkey and goose – puddings, chestnuts, fruit, cakes, and punch. Cost is $75 per person. The movie begins at 6 pm and the dinner commences at 7:30 pm. Happy Christmas! For more information see the County’s website.
