Bucks Food Calendar: July 16, 2014

Farm-to-fork, craft beer, wine pairing, pizza on the grill, and even catching fire flies. It’s all happening this week in Bucks and nearby.

Lagunitas beerIf you are a craft beer fan, don’t miss a special beer dinner Thursday (tomorrow) night at the Yardley Inn. The five course meal will feature Lagunitas Brewing Company beers. Sous Chef Josh Noel has created a pairing menu to compliment the beers, including fried gulf oysters, potato chip crusted pork terrine, and seared big eye tuna (for the full menu, click here). 

Eight of the best chefs in New Jersey and Pennsylvania will be preparing a 7-course wine pairing dinner at a special Farm to Fork Fundraiser at Alba Vineyard & Winery this Sunday evening. The dinner features locally produced food from farms throughout northern New Jersey and eastern Pennsylvania.  Expert winemakers have hand-selected each course’s pairing. The event begins with gourmet passed hors d’oeuvres during a VIP vineyard tour and concludes with al fresco dining on the beautiful grounds. The fundraiser benefits the New Jersey-based organization, The Foodshed Alliance (not to be confused with the Bucks County Foodshed Alliance.) For tickets and more information, click here.

Old school meets new school at the PASS in Rosemont this Tuesday evening. The prix fixe meal starts with an apertivo and an amuse, followed by six courses. The menu is French and designed to showcase both classic techniques and flavors, as well as a more contemporary take on French cuisine. For this special event, Matthew Ridgway, chef and owner of The PASS restaurant hosts chef Christopher Kearse, from Will BYOBa modern French-inspired restaurant in South Philly. For the full menu and to reserve your seat, see the PASS’ website.

What could be better than a summer night with pizza on the grill with fresh dough and fresh ingredients? The menu features Marguerita Pizza with fresh mozzarella, tomatoes, and basil, Three Cheese Pizza with Prosciutto, BYO (Build Your Own Pizza), and a S’mores Pizza for dessert. The class will be outdoors, weather permitting. Click here to register.

Grass-fed? Pastured? Conventional? What does it all mean? If you want to learn more about how our meat is raised in this country—from the farmers themselves—come to the County Theater this Thursday evening (tomorrow) for a showing of the film American Meat. Following the movie, there will be a panel discussion with local meat farmers. The event is part of the Farm Fresh Film Series, co-sponsored by the Doylestown Food Co-op and the Bucks County Foodshed Alliance. For more information and to purchase tickets, see the Co-op’s website here.

Remember catching fire flies when you were a kid? Give your kids the same fun experience this Saturday night at Tabora Farm and Orchard in Chalfont/Hilltown. The evening includes live music, a BBQ dinner, crafts, wagon rides to a bonfire, games, and, of course, firefly catching. Tickets ($5) must be purchased in advance. Call 215.249.0417 or visit the store.
