Food Fight - Revolution Never Tasted So Good

If all goes well, Eva and I will slip over to Dallas in a few weeks to see the documentary film Food Fight. Being a member of the local Slow Food chapter has some benefits. The film was released last year in Dallas and now returns. It looks like something that will be both interesting and educational. I will let you know after we see it.

Press Release from Savor Dallas
"Savor Dallas and AFI DALLAS are presenting a free screening of Food Fight, director Chris Taylor's acclaimed documentary that studies the American food system and how a group of California activists and culinarians in the 1960s and 1970s launched the movement that made organic and sustainable agriculture a part of the American and international food experience today.
 
Premiered at the AFI  DALLAS International Film Festival in 2008, Food Fight shares how the legendary Alice Waters, founder of the world famous Chez Panisse in Berkeley, and her colleagues, created a food chain outside of the conventional system.  This approach to a pesticide-free and seasonal agricultural market connected chefs with independent organic and sustainable growers to provide the fullest-flavor produce, proteins and ingredients for their fine-dining destinations.  The unintended by-product of this movement was the creation of a broader demand for organic ingredients among chefs, and then from the American consumer.  
 
Also featured in Food Fight is organic food leader and celebrity chef Wolfgang Puck and his work in raising the standards for American cuisine and consumption by making organic and seasonal ingredients a mainstay of his world famous menus.
 
"Alice Waters is a remarkable woman and chef with incredible vision and passion," said Jim White, co-founder of Savor Dallas, celebrating a fifth year as Dallas' premier culinary event featuring the best in food, wine, spirits and the arts. "We are so happy to give foodies who missed this film last year at AFI DALLAS a chance to experience this great culinary story.  If you eat, it's important to you." 
The screening of Food Fight will take place at The Angelika Theatre at Mockingbird Station on Monday, February 9, 2009 at 6:30 p.m.  Attendance is limited for this free screening. Tickets are available on a first-come, first-served basis by email .
 WFAA-TV Channel 8 film critic Gary Cogill, who also hosts Good Morning Texas,  will interview director Chris Taylor for the audience following the screening.
 The local chapter of Slow Food International and Dallas Farmers Market Friends will be special attendees of the screening."
