This Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, we hope that you’ll join us in the audience for the Portland premiere of Ingredients, a new film about our current food system, and how we can get back to its healthier, tastier roots. It’s a very Portland story that not only chronicles the nationwide issues affecting the way we eat, but also the Northwest solutions to those obstacles. While the film features such national food luminaries as Gary Paul Nabhan, Alice Waters, and Joan Dye Gussow, it also turns its lens on the many amazing Oregonian farmers and chefs who’ve made our state such a wonderful place to eat. Keep an eye out for appearances by chefs Cory Schreiber, Greg Higgins and Cathy Whims, and farmers Carol and Anthony Boutard, Shari Sirkin, Laura Masterson, and John Neumeister, among many other local food celebrities. Each night’s screening will benefit a different local food organization, which should give you one more reason to make sure you can attend.
