January 7, 2014 by  

The New Year will get started with a potluck for the Bucks County Foodshed Alliance.

The alliance will hold its annual meeting tomorrow in Doylestown. Along with taking care of business, the meeting will feature a potluck dinner and cooking demonstration.

Max Hansen, owner of Max & Me Catering and Max Hansen Carversville Grocery, will leading the cooking workshop. The demonstration will focus on locally-grown produce and will teach attendees how to work with seasonal vegetables and fruits in their cooking.

The business side of the meeting will feature a vote for new and returning members of the board of the Foodshed Alliance. The alliance will also accept applications for partnerships with its ‘Buy Fresh, Buy Local’ chapter during the annual event. The organization could use flyer printing to spread the word about its upcoming dinner and to detail the schedule of activities.

The event is open to members of the Bucks County Foodshed Alliance and other interested people. It is free for all and registration isn’t required. The organizers ask that people bring a drink, dessert, side dish, or main dish to share. Since the focus of the alliance and of the cooking demonstration is on foods produced in the area, the organizers encourage people to use local ingredients in their dishes.

The dinner and meeting will take place in the Oscar Martin room at The Standard Club, 127 East State Street. Dinner starts at 6:00 pm and cooking demonstration will begin at 7:00 pm tomorrow, January 8.
