Of Local Interest

If you're in the Bucks County, PA area and have nothing to do on Wednesday, May 19th, there may still be some spaces available for this class:

Eat Global, Go Local Cooking
Bucks County is fertile ground for locally grown free-range and/or organic poultry and eggs; pasture-raised and hormone- and antibiotic-free beef, pork, and lamb; and artisanal cheeses, yogurt, and ice cream. Prepare a Bucks County farm-to-table dinner, including some unusual vegetables like fava beans and fennel. We’ll discuss where to purchase local foods and how to store them to retain nutrients and
flavor. Fee: $20 (Plus $20 fee to instructor for food) Course: RCULI 4067 Sec C80
Wed., May 19, 7-9 pm | Instructor: Diana Cercone, Food and Travel Writer

I'm not a locavore by any stretch of the imagination; however, it's hard to pin down everything available in this area as so many places aren't online and advertise simply by word-of-mouth. And I'd really like to know where the cheesemakers are! While I find it rather funny that fava beans and fennel are considered unusual(!), it sounds like a good way to find out who's who and what may be worth a drive.

Call 215-968-8409 and just follow the instructions to register. I think it will be forty bucks well spent.

What a great new "space." I think you'll find this a more comfortable fit! I try and eat local as much as possible and it's fun too as we have some great farmer's markets here in LA.

Yeah, having someone get that info all together for you sounds great.
