Bucks Food Calendar: February 11, 2015

Love is in the air! Or is that the aroma of delicious food I smell? Not a huge difference, as far as I’m concerned. But this weekend takes two of the best things, love and food, and gives plenty of opportunities for both on Valentine’s Day, which is this Saturday, February 14. Other events to swoon over this weekend include Italian cooking classes, a farm-to-table dinner, firehouse spaghetti dinners AND breakfasts, and Mardi Gras festivities next Tuesday, February 17. Here’s to hoping you get hit by cupid’s arrow this weekend!
