DC @ the Food Film Festival!

.

A while back, Dirt Candy was invited to be part of The Food Film Festival and so my husband and his editor, Matt London, set out to make a short film for Dirt Candy called “Vegetables: Friend or Foe?” We’re going to be in Chicago for the installment of the Food Film Festival this weekend (we’re up Saturday night) but after that I’m going to put it up online for everyone to watch. I also agreed to be the vegetarian option at the NY Food Film Fest parties following three of the screenings. It was actually a lot of fun and I was really happy when Gael Greene tweeted that her favorite film at the fest was “Vegetables: Friend or Foe?” and her favorite dish was my Tomato Cakes. Hopefully it’ll be as much fun in Chicago!

We got to set up at the candy counter!

Lots and lots and lots of Tomato Cakes.

This is what these events look like from my POV:
an eternal hand eternally taking food off my table.
