Missed it? Feel it as you let your mind stroll inside the world of the 2011 Chicago Food Film Festival complete with a **massive slideshow** from three photographers’ perspectives below. Click one photo below + get on the bus.

Chicago Food Film Fest: Self-explanatory? Not so much. This festival ain’t your mama’s bag of buttered popcorn and rom-com. Food Film Fest = sold out weekend long party with wonderfully curated Chitown edibles and a crowd so hot we wanted to mac on them. Hey, you can’t blame us, this crowd was as sexy as the food porn on Festival screens. ChiFFF was most definitely a tall order. Everyone rocked it Friday through Sunday taking down mind blowing eats, luscious cocktails, and fab films. Chi Food Film Fest goers showed our many NYC pals how it’s done…Chicago style. Many thanks to Kendall College for hosting and reminding us just how fun college really is.

Below is Part 1 of 3 of our breakdown of the weekend complete with a photo ***slideshow*** from three photographers. Yup. So much love from the photogs. #Grateful. Stay tuned for Part 2 -> Edible Adventure Brunch @ Intelligentsia w Doughnut Vault, Danny Macaroons and mas + Part 3, The Great Chicago Shuck + Suck + Awards Brunch. Oh so much #DeliciousDIRT. We’re already craving next year. Much much much LOVE + mad respect to the entire Food Film Fest crew who shine so brightly, who kick serious ass and have hearts of gold.

Friday night = Farm To Film To Table + After Party 247 lbs Pig Roast. ***Photo Tour ***Slideshow*** & Mas below

Literally, minds were blown, waistlines were shot, mouths were satiated. Oh, and that’s just the tip.

Luckily, we have a shitload of photos for you to see just how rad this food and fashion event actually was. More to come… For now, get DOSED below in Delicious DIRT’s Part 1 of 2.  Need more info on a specific photo? Please email us @
