Pepperoncini Presents Five Course Chocolate and Spirit Pairing

Beginning at 7:30 on Thursday, September 20th Pepperoncini Phoenixville (184 Bridge Street; 484-924-8429) will present a Five Course Chocolate and Spirit Tasting. Imagine a sip of fine rum paired with a creamy chocolate which presents notes of buttery vanilla goodness. Or a Tennessee whiskey matched with a tropical chocolate that brings the natural honey flavor forward. We call that perfectly balanced. Guests will savor a variety of fine chocolates provided by Bridge Street Chocolates, paired with premium spirits; rum, whiskey, port and more from Capital Spirits. The cost is $32 per person and includes hors d'oeuvres, tax and gratuity. Tickets must be purchased in advance at Pepperoncini (484.924.8429) or Bridge Street Chocolates (610.935.8100). Seating is limited.

The event will be hosted by Gail Warner, owner and chocolatier of Bridge Street Chocolates. Warner will be on hand to present each pairing and answer any questions. Located in historic Phoenixville, Bridge Street Chocolates believes that quality chocolate is a necessary luxury. Gail opened the quaint little shop in December 2012. She only selects the finest variety of Belgium chocolates to create distinct flavor combinations.

Public meeting to discuss future of Melchiorre Park scheduled for Nov. 29th

On Thursday, November 29th, the Borough is holding a 'brainstorming session' in which plans for Melchiorre Park will be discussed with its park planning consultants. The event will be held at the High School and will begin 7pm. For those of you who do not know about Melchiorre Park (of which I am included, even though I apparently live across the street from it), it is a 23 acre park located south of High Street on the land between it and French Creek. It appears, based on the drawing on the Borough home page , to be the land that is next to Westridge Village and across the street from the new Northridge Village community. As part of the meeting, the consultants will 'provide a brief background of the project and present a pre-final master plan for the park'. Source: Phoenixville Borough Website

Local Baker Wins on Netflix Sugar Rush

Peri Anderson, owner of Brooklyn Girl Bakery , was part of a team that won the most recent episode of Sugar Rush on Netflix. I reached out to Peri to learn a little more about her bakery: I started out taking a recreational cake decorating class with my mom when I was still living in NY. I loved it and moved to PA to be with my boyfriend (now husband), where I began interning for a bakery in Chestnut Hill. Over the course of 7 years I worked my way up from intern to pastry chef until I decided to leave in 2012. I do all of my baking in our home kitchen which is licensed and insured by the Dept. of Agriculture. Initially, I wanted to focus on wedding cakes so I immediately started contacting wedding venues in the area to see if they would include me a wedding cake vendor in their packages. I currently work with over 10 venues and several caterers in the area. While wedding cakes are my main focus, I also make cakes and cookie favors for all occasions. While I don’t have a retail loca
