Hunterdon Food Calendar: January 18, 2016

The snow can be rather frustrating. There’s the shoveling, the slush, the icy windshields, the surprise snowball attacks that could happen at any minute. But don’t worry about the white stuff, because there is plenty to do this week to keep you warm, busy, and full.

Into the Oven, Liberty Hall Pizza

Eat some pizza. This week, on Tuesday, January 19, Executive Chef Joshua Homacki from The Inn at Barley Sheaf Farm will be the guest pizzaiolo at Liberty Hall Pizza in Lambertville. Chef Homacki believes that “fresh is best,” and he uses ingredients from area farmers whenever possible. His menu changes seasonally and features many classics with a twist. For his pizzas this week, he will be making  a house-smoked duck ham with broccoli and pineapple and a shrimp chorizo with manchego, kale and piquillo pepper. Sounds good enough to have a slice or two!

Learn to cook. The final class of the basics of Mexican cooking techniques at The Farm School is this Wednesday, January 20. This class will cover: Ceviche, Cochinita Pibil (banana leaf wrapped braised pork), Margaritas, and Mexican custard with marinated fresh fruit. This is the sixth and final class in the series. Cost is $90 per person. Visit their website to reserve your spot.

Cam Jam Wine, Unionville Vineyards

Wine down this week. The long wait for the 2014 Cam Jam is now over. At Unionville Vineyards in Ringoes, you can now purchase the light bodied red wine with notes of bright cherry, raspberry, white pepper and orange flower. The flavors are met with soft tannins and a medium finish of lightly toasted oak.  It’s not too heavy, not too light. This wine can be dressed up to pair with classic dishes of roasted poultry, salmon, pork and veal. Or why not have it alone for a pre-dinner drink? Stop by the vineyard’s tasting room to try this wine, and pick up a few bottles to take home.

Take that same wine and look for a local BYOB restaurant in Hunterdon and Bucks Counties: BYOBs in Bucks County


Do you know about the Bucks County Taste Dinner Club?

We’ve got some incredible food here in the Delaware River Valley. Young chefs, fresh from big city kitchens. A wide diversity of cuisines. Fresh, locally sourced ingredients, and unique venues. You don’t need to go into “the city” to find great food anymore. In fact, folks from New York and Philly are coming here.

The Bucks County Taste Dinner Club wants to introduce you to all this with special, exclusive dining events at some of the best restaurants on both sides of the river. Unique, fun, intimate and delicious — and a great way to meet new friends. No membership fee required; just a willingness to eat good food and have fun. Get more details here and sign up for our email list here.
