Cheese Curds, Anyone?
While Chicago Gourmet 2010 is bringing fine cuisine and culture to Millennium Park, another food event will be taking place at the MCA Warehouse at 1747 W. Hubbard.
After four years and 20,000 guests served, filmmaker George Motz and the team behind the New York City Food Film Festival is bringing The First Annual Chicago Food Film Festival, to the Windy City. Packed with mouth-watering documentaries, features, short films and food, the festival brings you the opportunity to taste what you see on screen for a multi-sensory, full-bodied experience.
The fest will kick off with Edible Adventure #002 on September 24th, each film is paired with a tasting of its subject matter. Nuggets of fried cheese curds, corn dogs, and other fair foods are served with the film Eat Your Fill, directed by Mark Irving, where a man eats every menu item that is fried and/or on a stick at the Wisconsin State Fair, to special ice creams paired with trippy The Death and Life of Ice Cream, directed by Orrin Zucker. Look out for other delectable matches of films and food involving oysters and exotic sodas like Fanny Bay oysters served during the screening of Craig Noble’s The Perfect Oyster and exotic sodas paired with the award-winning Soda Pop.
Closing night, September 25th takes you on the Chicago Burger ‘N Beer Experience, curated by Chicago’s Chef Michael Kornick of DMK Burger Bar. As festival-goers feast on burgers and locally crafted beers they will be watching “Beer Wars,” directed by Anat Baron, and “The Best of Hamburger America,” directed by Festival Director, George Motz.
