Soothing Soups & Sizzling Stews
Winter means cold, but the season also brings food that fills one with warmth. The hearty broth, the intoxicating sight and that oh so satisfying sizzle meld seamlessly. As the cold weather settles into the area people have begun looking for ways to best keep warm, and “comfort” foods work to fill the bill. Beef Stew and French Onion Soup come to mind, as do timeless classics like Sheppard’s Pie, and even Grilled Cheese with Tomato Soup!
With an average winter temperature of 33 degrees, the word, freezing, too often rolls off the tongue, but Bucks County has you covered. With plenty of places to share the warmth, everyone is welcome and there’s more than enough for all.
