Food News / March

Written by  County Lines Magazine

West American Bistro, West ChesterThe Bistro’s Back in Town.

Searching for your next favorite BYOB?
Look no further than newly opened 39 West American Bistro in West Chester. Anthony Mastroianni, formerly of Malvern’s Cosimo Restaurant & Wine Bar, has a new culinary venture with a menu ranging from classics like Grandma M’s Meatballs to trendy options like shrimp and grits. Stop in for lunch or dinner and indulge in their unique American classics with a twist. Bistro, baby! 39 W. Gay St., West Chester; 39WestAmericanBistro.com.


Crunch Time.

Whether you eat them alongside sandwiches or as a stand-alone snack, you can never have just one potato chip. Savor the salty crunch even more on National Potato Chip Day, March 14th. The world spends $15 billion a year on potato chips—that’s about six pounds of crunchy goodness per person! Pay homage to America’s #1 snack food at a Chester County institution—Herr’s Snacks—by taking one of their factory tours. Book your tour at Herrs.com/SnackFactoryTours.


Can It!

Canned cocktails are on the rise and that’s the idea behind Better World Spirits’ venture to sell their own hard soda while supporting local agriculture.
The company launched a crowdfunding campaign aimed at Chester County residents to invest in this very canny idea. Better World Spirits aims to craft vodka-based cocktails (with flavors like blood orange ginger) made of all-natural ingredients canned in 12-once portions—perfect for sporting events or as an alternative to beer.

Image of sardines.Fish for Thought.

Most know them as the pizza topping everyone loves to hate.
But sardines are a superfood that’s in season during March. Sardines are a great source of vitamin B12, which regulates the nervous system to reduce that late winter stress. Skip the pizza and try them topped on toasted sourdough with red chili or mixed in with fettuccine and sautéed kale for an easy weeknight dinner. More recipes on Saveur.com.


Knock on Wood.

Barrel-aged drinks are the latest trend in alcoholic beverages—read “Spirited Wines” in this issue—and Victory Brewing Company jumped on the bandwagon with barrel-aged beers.
Victory Brewing CompanyVictory recently introduced Java Cask, a dark beer featuring undertones of coffee from local roaster One Village Coffee. The barrel-aging process adds the sweetness of bourbon and a hint of oak to the beer as it’s tapped. Much like barrel-aged wine, beer is now getting a new flavor with the addition of wood.
