Friday Foodstuffs for August 2, 2019

Cheesesteak cheesecake???

Pizza topped the peas???

Mustard ice cream???

Say what you will about social media, but at least it brings attention to these mangled mashups. As a famous movie once said, just because we can do something does not mean we should. You gotta know when to keep your cheesecakes and your cheesesteaks separate.

And shame on you French’s for yellow mustard ice cream. If you’re going to do mustard ice cream, do it right. I say go Gulden’s or go home!

What’s New on the Menu?

Gelato Dolceria‘s Collingswood location is now open!

Revolutionary Lounge & Cafe in Toms River has moved from Brick Boulevard to its new home by the new Koi.

McFarlan’s Market Collingswood is closing August 15th and both this location and the Merchantville location are for sale by the owners.


If you like craft beer, music, and crabs, I have the festival for you. It’s called the Craft Beer, Music & Crab Festival (how about that!), and it’s happening this Saturday (August 3rd) on the grounds of the Physick Estate in Cape May. All the brews from the Cape May County area will be there. And if you don;t want any part of the seafood, there will be food trucks like Nick’s Roast Beef and Empanada Mama’s to serve your taste buds.,

Not so much about food, but the annual Elephant Talk Indie Music Festival is happening this weekend at The Watering Hole in Mays Landing. Three days of music with 100 bands playing on three stages. Not all at same time, mind you.

The Salem County Fair celebrates its 60th year with four days of fun from August 6th to August 9th. One of the events will be a homemade ice cream contest on August 8th, and there will be chicken and ribs BBQs in the late afternoon and early evening of each day.

The Atlantic County 4-H Fair runs this year from August 8th to 10th. Food events of note: a pie eating contest and a chicken BBQ on August 10th.

Not crazy about those fairs? Maybe you can get your chocolate fix at the annual Chocolate Fair at the LBI Museum on August 8th from 6PM to 9PM.
