A few of our favorite things to share this month about local food and drink.

Taste of Thai

Bringing a taste of Thai to Kennett Square, Café de Thai opened its doors to offer a modern twist on authentic Thai cuisine. With 19 years of experience, Chef Jaruwanee Primo has created an inviting menu using fresh ingredients from local farmers’ markets. Enjoy delicious starters like Pork Dumplings and Duck Tacos or dig into flavorful house specials like Kennett Pad Thai and Fish Longwood. 420 W. Cypress St., Kennett Square.


As the Pillsbury Bake-Off crowned this year’s winner—for Dublin Cheeseboard Stuffed Appetizer Bread—let’s dig into the history of this iconic American contest. Its impact is widespread, with winners and finalists coming from every state. Pennsylvania’s winner, from Devon, entered a pumpkin ravioli and salted caramel whipped cream recipe. Kitchen staples like sesame seeds, Bundt pans and peanut butter blossoms became widely accepted because of past winners. It’s never too early to think of new recipes to try out next year!

Cookies are Coming

Mark the much-anticipated final season of the HBO series Game of Thrones by snacking on GOT-themed cookies from Oreo during the season premiere. Stirring up almost as much mystery as the plot-twisting show, Oreo has kept the cookie design under wraps, leaving many fans speculating. Could there be fire and ice icing? Will the cookies be stamped with the direwolves and dragons of Westeros? One more reason to get excited about the April 14th premiere!

Say Cheese!

Nothing is too cheesy for National Grilled Cheese Month! Create gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches to celebrate, using stellar local cheese. Head to Yellow Springs Farm for delicious and award-winning artisanal goat cheese, or check out The Farm at Doe Run for their flavorful and perfectly aged cheeses, including their signature Twisted Sister—a yummy version of Colby Jack cheese. Enjoy this savory snack with a Chester County twist.

Pig Out!

The new Sterling Pig Public House, a sister location to its Media home, brings local flavor and elevated pub favorites to West Chester. Dig into delicious BBQ food like their Smoked Brisket, St. Louis Ribs or Pulled Pork. Pair your meal with their signature beers like This Little Piggy and The Snuffler—all brewed and tapped on site. A perfect combination of classic BBQ food and solid brews and another great dining option in the Borough. 113 W. Market St., West Chester.
