Eating, Drinking and Cooking in South Jersey This Weekend (7/26-28)

So, how about that post yesterday? If you followed it, you’ll know that this is the second-to-last weekend roundup before we drop this weekly report exclusively into our subscriber’s inboxes. But for now, feast your eyes on what’s happening this weekend!

We’ve already mentioned Collingswood Farm Fresh Restaurant Week, which ends on Friday.

We mentioned Farm to Fork Week, which ends on Sunday.

And, we mentioned the Atlantic City Food and Wine Festival, which starts in earnest on Friday and runs through Sunday (we’ll be there, so if you see us, stop by and say hi!).

Is there anything else going on this weekend?

Of course!

This week, there’s more festivals than you can shake a stick at (if that’s your idea of a good time). The 25th Annual Pine Barrens Festival at Church of the Holy Eucharist  in Tabernacle continues now through this Saturday; the  Gloucester County 4-H Fair & NJ Peach Festival at the Gloucester County 4-H Fairgrounds  in Mullica Hill also continues, but through Sunday.

If you’re at the Shore tomorrowSeafood Fest 2013 is happening at St. Mary’s Parish Hall  in Stone Harbor: from 12PM to 2PM for lunch, 5PM to 7:30PM for dinner.

On Saturday, craft brew lovers have the Pour-A-Palooza at The Pour House  in Westmont from 12PM to 4PM. Sample more than 30 brews for $40 per person ($35 in advance).

And on Sunday, you’ve got the Summer Chill Wine Festival at Renault Winery Resort and Golf in Egg Harbor City from 4PM to 9PM. Chill out and sample wines for $15 per person. Or grab a bite at the Ethnic Food Fair and Gift Auction at Annunciation Orthodox Church  in Brick, from 12PM to 6PM.

If you care to venture out of South Jersey this weekend…

Instead of checking out Betsy Ross’s house or Ben Franklin’s grave, why not do another Philadelphia history tour: of Philly foods and wines? Check out the Philly Food and Wine Pairing on Sunday from 2:00-3:30 PM at Pinot Boutique. Owner Dan “The Wine Man” Soskin will guide you through a tasting of The Philly Cheesesteak, soft pretzel, and Tastykakes, along with wine pairings, while learning the history of these distinctive local favorites.

And, finally,  here’s your cooking class schedule for the weekend:

Friday: Fresh and Seasonal Meals Made Easy at the Ocean County Library Manchester Branch and Date Night: Steakhouse Dining at Sur la Table in Marlton.

Saturday: Date Night: Spice It Up! at Sur la Table and A Taste of the Season – Crab at Kitchen Kapers in Moorestown.

Sunday: 4 Grill Recipes Every Cook Should Know at Sur la Table.

Have a wonderful weekend!
