Delicious DIRT’S Slideshow Photo Tour from Cultivate Festival 2011

Tiny But Mighty Popcorn we LOVE @ Cultivate by MBK

As if Chipotle hadn’t done enough already to woo eaters of all stripes! From food nerds to tree-huggers to just plain burrito-lovers, Chipotle (wonderful sponsor of Food Film Fest) threw an enormous and thoughtful bash in Chicago’s Lincoln Park on a gorgeous October Saturday. The first annual kickass Cultivate Festival rocked us with killer food, sexy tunes, and inspiring ideas. Repping the Artisan Hall, Birky Family Farm’s Cornbread+BBQ pork+blueberries= perfect balance of sweet, smoky, and savory while Rich Chocolates melted in our mouths. Tiny But Mighty foods blew our minds with their popcorn (and their name which is anything but tiny on taste).  Bell’s Brewery, Chicago fave Goose Island and more kept us delightfully tipsy as we soaked in the sun and rocked out to White Rabbits and Calexico, just to name a few… Of course, we learned much too: Paul Virant, Paul Kahan, and Bruce Sherman rounded out the who’s-who of Chitown’s top chefs who led demos in tents across the park while Amanda Freitag (Food Film Fest goddess) brought her NYC goodness. Virant’s skirt steak salad with Dietzler Farm beef and heirloom tomatoes elevated picnic fare to a whole new level.

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.
