Bucks Food Calendar: November 11, 2011

Now we’re getting some real November weather. Cool and windy, as the last of the leaves blow away and leave the trees bare. Time for warming food like stews and soups. I feel the cooking itch, the need to make a big pot of something or a lasagne, enough to freeze for later in the winter. I guess squirrels aren’t the only ones with the urge to stock up for the cold days ahead.

Speaking of warm, lots of church suppers and firehouse dinners this weekend, as well as two firehouse breakfasts on Sunday. And good warming food too. There’s the Spaghetti Dinner at the Delaware Valley Fire Co. in Erwinna on Friday (today). Then on Saturday, stop by the Roast Beef Dinner at the Chalfont United Methodist Church, or head over for dinner to the Plumsteadville Fire Co. Quakertown will be the site for a Ham Dinner at the Quakertown United Methodist Church or a Pork & Sauerkraut Dinner at St. John’s Evangelical Lutheran Church. The nice thing about these suppers is that you know the proceeds are going to a good cause. For more details and locations, see our full calendar, Food Events in Bucks County.

To market, to market. Several farmers’ markets are still going, full of cool weather crops, like greens, and root vegetables good for storing for the winter, like potatoes, onions, garlic and beets. Doylestown, New Hope, and Wrightstown will have markets until the week before Thanksgiving. What will you find there? In addition to baked goods and bread, eggs, pastured meats, coffee and more, the veggies include: winter squash and pumpkins, broccoli, bok choy, cauliflower, celeriac, kale, collards and other greens, cabbages, leeks, Swiss chard, radishes, sweet and hot peppers, eggplant, fennel, lettuce, basil, parsley, herbs, potatoes, garlic, onions, carrots, and red beets. Many markets will also have apples and cider, and locally foraged, wild maitake and other mushrooms.
