Movie Night! "Ingredients"­

June 12th – Movie Night – “Ingredients” (66 min)

Narrated by actress Bebe Neuwirth, this engaging documentary weighs the shortcomings of America's industrialized food system against a rising local-growth movement, whose proponents are shrinking the gap between farmland and dinner table. With chefs Alice Waters and Greg Higgins as guiding lights, growers, restaurateurs and consumers around the country, from Oregon to Harlem, New York, discuss their methods for bringing food production back home.

    A little note on attendance... Yesterday at 5:00 when I checked we had 18 people rsvp, and 3 showed up. Yes, 3. If you cannot make it, please change your rsvp. Leaving a note in the comments doesn't change your rsvp, though it is nice to hear from folks. :-)

    Hello folks! Well, Netflix put a little hitch in our giddyup last night! The removed "Ingredients" from their instant play rotation. We pressed on though and selected another food documentary called "Food Fight" (also featuring Alice Waters...just love her!). I would encourage Netflix subscribers to check it out! And, of course I always encourage supporting local farmers and restaurants!

    For those unable to make it tonight....this film is available on Netflix as an instant view. Please check it out! And support local restaurants that source their food locally too! :-)

    When I originally RSVPd it said I was wait listed, so I took advantage of going to the Nuns on The Bus presentation tonight with some girl friends. While I'll miss you and the information, I'll look forward to next month's meeting! Hopefully, "Ingredients" will be a repeat performance? Sounds like a lot of disappointed people who can't attend tonight either.
