Delicious DIRT. We’re AMPED From 2011 Chicago Food Film Fest. Now You Can Be Too

Pleasant House Bakery's Tasty Meatball @ Chicago Food Film Fest by Marc Klutznick

If you’re food nerds like us and you happened to have missed the SOLD OUT 2011 Chicago Food Film Fest this past weekend, calm your inner food geek with these festival flicks. You won’t be having foodgasms while tasting what you saw as we did…but this is the #nextbestthing until #FFF 2012. For now, satisfy your inner food nerd with these short flicks below.

You’ll see hottie Danny Macaroons get down in his sweet kitchen + crave macs within twenty seconds. These macaroons actually need no intro, already have a cult following, + are the most soft plump fresh scrumptious macaroons we’ve had. See why for yourselves below and let us know when you get lucky enough to mac on those macs (hint: order here). You’ll also probably salivate over D Vault’s doughnuts which def walked the walk. Yes, we’ve officially lost our D Vault virginity and hell yes, it was worth the wait. #donutsarethenewcupcakes. And after seeing sexy chef Aaron make those doughnuts at 1am, we now know how much delicacy goes into these mind-blowing delights + why people stand in the rain for hours to scarf em down. You’ll also see #ChiFFF double award winner for best short + audience choice -> Buttermilk: It Can Help, Farm To Barstool + a few Intelligentsia shorts below… Food porn photo tours soon… stay tuned for more #DeliciousDIRT soon.
