FRESH and Tasty (Dinner + Movie)

The cooking group I belong to, Cooking Minnesota, is hosting a three-night event featuring the movie FRESH at the end of this month. If you live in the Twin Cities area, I highly encourage you to join us for an evening of great food, an intriguing film & hopefully some great discussion.
FRESH celebrates the farmers, thinkers and business people across America who are re-inventing our food system. Each has witnessed the rapid transformation of our agriculture into an industrial model, and confronted the consequences: food contamination, environmental pollution, depletion of natural resources, and morbid obesity. Forging healthier, sustainable alternatives, they offer a practical vision for a future of our food and our planet.

Among several main characters, FRESH features urban farmer and activist, Will Allen, the recipient of MacArthur’s 2008 Genius Award; sustainable farmer and entrepreneur, Joel Salatin, made famous by Michael Pollan’s book, The Omnivore’s Dilemma; and supermarket owner, David Ball, challenging our Wal-Mart dominated economy.
Award winning restaurant, Corner Table, and cooking group, Cooking Minnesota, have paired up to do 3 nights of dinner + movie at Corner Table. The dinners will be 3 course meals featuring the best that harvest season has to offer, served family style. Beer and wine will be available for purchase.

After dinner we will be moving outside to watch FRESH: New thinking on what we're eating. The movie takes on the large subject on reinventing our food system. It's already sold out 3 showings in Minneapolis.

Beer and popcorn, both locally produced, will be available while we watch the movie and facilitate a discussion about how home cooks can incorporate conscientious food choices for our families, health and planet.

The cost for the whole evening is $55 (dinner, movie & popcorn.)
Dates are June 30, July 1 & July 2.
Dinner at 6:30 and move at 9:00 PM
Seats are limited to 40 each night.
Tickets will also be available for just viewing the movie at $15.
Tickets will be available through Corner Table or Cooking MN

Enjoy the movie! I saw a screening of it a few months ago and loved it. My favorite part was being able to see Joel Salatin's farm after reading about it in Omnivore's Dilemma.

Oh, how cool. If I were closer I'd be there in a second! I hope it is a great night. I've heard a lot about the movie. I'll just have to be patient for a while before I get the chance to see it.
