Friday Foodstuffs 11.11.11: Cutting to the Chase

No silly irreverent thoughts today. Let’s get right to the events for the remainder of the weekend, shall we? I mean, it is now Saturday and all.

There’s still time to get to the Locavore Weekend at Bellview Winery in  Landisville as well as the “Rock and Wine” Seafood Festival at Natali Vineyards in Cape May Court House. Both events run through 5PM today.

Tonight you have the Fall Hearthside Dinner at Gibbon House in Greenwich, Savor Borgata – Taste of American Classics at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa in Atlantic City, and a Wine Tasting and Auction Event at The Mansion on Main Street in Voorhees.

Also going on tonight is a special bar crawl in Penns Grove to help raise funds for a local family.

And for today and tomorrow enjoy a Pie Tasting Party at Johnson’s Corner Farm in Medford.

Here are the cooking classes for the rest of the weekend:

Today: Blue Ribbon French Food at Kitchen Kapers in Moorestown.

Tomorrow: Southern Specialties from the hit movie “The Help” and Classic Tuscan Dinner Party at Viking Cooking School at Harrah’s in Atlantic City, Kids in the Kitchen – Thanksgiving Cupcake Decorating
at Kitchen Kapers, and Homemade Cheese and Dairy Workshop at Sur La Table in Marlton.


Blogging Out Hunger

Lots of food drives going on around South Jersey! From Juniper Village in Williamstown, to Innova Health in Deptford and Mount Laurel, to Haddon Township, to Point Pleasant Beach, to the Center for Independent Living in South Jersey, to Assemblyman Domenick DiCicco’s office in Washington Twp

Meanwhile, food banks are in need of monetary donations as well as food donations.

But food donations are very much needed, as food banks are having to limit what they can provide.

Bethany Presbyterian Church in Bridgeton is providing 100 turkey dinners today. A number of locations in Gloucester County will be doing the same during the Thanksgiving holiday.

Looking for ways to volunteer? Meals on Wheels in Salen County could use some help.

And in the news this week…

Liquor sales at the Moorestown Mall was approved by voters, paving the way for more restaurants to come to the mall.

The news owners of The Pier Shops at Caesars wants to bring in new restaurants to fill empty spaces.

From Beer-Stained Letter…Turtle Stone Brewing in Vineland received some crucial financing for equipment.

And are restaurant chains focusing more ads towards foodies? A better question might be: are foodies going to buy into it?

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
