Dirt Candy Takes Chicago…with the Food Film Fest!

.

Dirt Candy is on the road again! I’m heading to Chicago this coming weekend as part of the The Food Film Festival’s Chicago leg (running Nov. 15 – 18). I’ll be serving up Portobello Mousse and screening Dirt Candy’s short movie, Vegetables: Friend or Foe? on Saturday night as part of the closing night single malt whiskey screening and awards ceremony. It’s basically a big giant party where you can watch movies and get drunk. Also: eat food.

.

.

Vegetables: Friend or Foe? is the short movie made by my husband and Matt London, and Gael Greene called it her favorite film of the Food Film Fest, NYC edition. Even better, if you’re buying a ticket and you’re a Dirt Candy Buddy (and of course you are if you’re reading this post) use the code CFFF12FILMS and get 33% off your tickets until Friday at 7pm.

.

.

So come on out, eat some food, get in out of the cold, guzzle some booze, and watch movies (about food).

(Buy tickets, Chicago-People!)
