Here is a round-up of some of the special events that have filled my Inbox lately:
Take a Valentine’s cooking class on February 10 at Whole Foods Princeton with Christina Crawford, owner/chef of Wooden Spoon Catering. Register at Whole Foods online. $35 per person (a deal for such a delicious menu), and 10% of the class’s income will be donated to Mercer County’s Dress for Success to boot! Eat well and do good.
Boxed lunches are usually boring sandwiches, aren’t they? But now Mehek Fine Indian Cuisine on Nassau Street offers boxed Indian meals for lunch– a hot entrée (your choice of a variety of curries, including several with goat!), daal, rice, bread and a dessert. They will deliver within a 5 mile radius for orders of $20 or more. Try to order a day in advance, 609-279-9191.
Elements offers a special prix fixe menu (in addition to the regular menu of course) on Foodie Fridays: Chef Scott prepares a 5-course tasting featuring seasonally inspired ingredients for $69 ($99 with wine). Call 609-924-0078 to reserve for this.
Deborah’s Pantry’s fifth annual Foodways Symposium, titled “Drink…friendly to Nature…and accommodated to General use,” It takes place April 9 at Pennsbury Manor, 400 Pennsbury Memorial Road, Morrisville, PA 19067. To register ($75) for the symposium (and workshop) visit www.deborahspantry.comfor details. Special lodging rates available, too. These symposia are highly educational, at this one you’ll learn about the beer, wine, and cider produced and consumed during the colonial period.
