The Sweet Tastes of Valentine’s Day by “Living Well With Pat Nogar”

Let Pat help you prepare your palate (and your menu) for Valentine’s Day!!!! Pat Nogar, of “Living Well With Pat Nogar” is known for exploring (and making) the best of foods and this event promises to be no different. Thinking of what to prepare for your sweetheart? Consider this – Chocolate Covered Strawberries, Mini Sweetheart Cherry Pies, Mini Cheesecakes, Chocolate Covered Pretzels, and Red Velvet Cupcakes. And we will close this sweet feast with Black Pepper Raspberry Sorbet floating in Prosecco!

The biggest dilemma on Valentine’s Day is what wine to serve with sweets. Pat has solved that problem by inviting Haley Lowe Erdlen of Scout & Cellar, the producers of “Clean-Crafted Wines”, to join her in pairing wines with her hand-made treats. With Pat, Haley will guide you through a complimentary wine tasting so you will know just what wine brings out the best in these dishes. You’ll be ready for a Valentine’s Day you’ll not forget!

This private event wil be held at the chic boutique, Gilbert & Evans located in Suburban Square. Gilbert & Evans features women, men’s and children’s fashions and home and gift items. They are prepared to help you select the perfect outfit (or gift) for Valentine’s Day. Anything item in pink or red will be offered at a 20% discount at this event only. I’ve got my eye on a fabulous red sweater I saw there the other day!

Finally, in support of the American Heart Association’s “Go Red for Women” Campaign, “Living Well With Pat Nogar” will donate a portion of the proceeds from this event to the American Heart Association for their educational efforts on women and heart disease.

Important! This event is limited to 20 people so don’t hesitate to get your tickets!

Pizza Day!

Deep Dish… New York Style… White… Plain… Pepperoni… Works… Meat Lovers… Vege… Cheese… NO! Anchovies… Hawaiian…

How do you like your Pizza? Is there a food that creates such a strong feeling of emotion or memory? Do you like thin crust or thick? Extra Cheese or Extra Sauce? So many varieties and flavors. You can have your pizza delivered, dine in or by the slice. Cold leftover pizza. Do you eat your slice front to back or back to front? Do you fold it in half? There are endless possibilities.

Every Friday was pizza day in school. You could smell it in the hall walking to the cafeteria. That was the day that the lines were the longest. Pizza was never used as a flying projectile for a food fight. You never saw those square pieces of crust and cheese being flung in the air like the veal patty. You saw less lunchboxes on pizza day. Then there was summer camp pizza. A greasy gooey mess of 1 pound of cheese on every slice. We used to take a napkin and put it on the pizza to remove the extra oil. Laughing at to how many napkins would be needed. We had contests to see who could eat the most. Who could beat the legendary pizza eaters from Summer’s past.

There was pizza after the game. Late night pizza runs in college. Is pizza not the perfect food? Whats Happening Lower Merion visited 3 of the areas pizzerias to get their take on pizza and pizza day.

Wayne Durrant manages the kitchen at Anthony’s Coal Fired Pizza. He has been making pizza with the company for 8 years. He started out as a dishwasher and he worked his way up.
