Food Film Fest Event 6/9 @ The Glass House

This is a one in a lifetime opportunity that you cannot miss. Join us on June 9 for an unbelievable evening of the perfect pairing of food, film, and modern design. This event will be held at the Phillip Johnson Glass House in New Canaan, Connecticut. Built in 1949 as Phillip Johnson’s own residence, it is regarded as a masterpiece in the use of glass, but also extremely important and influential in modern architecture. Like all Food Film Fest events (incredible, duh), you will be treated to some of the most intriguing and relevant food films accompanied by epicurean delights. This time you will also have access to the exquisite 47-acre campus of the Glass House. Starting with cocktails and hors d’oeuvres by Artisan Executive Chef Frederic Kieffer, then onto the film program presented by Festival Director George Motz, this Dine With Design event will be sure to spark your fire. Watch eight short films and eat what you see as seven of them will be including food pairings. Best of all, proceeds will directly benefit the Phillip Johnson Glass House, (a site of The National Trust for Historic Preservation). The New York Times even covered this event, so you know it’s a big deal. Read up on it here. Most importantly, get more information and purchase tickets by clicking here. See you on June 9.

Chicago Food Film Fest: Self-explanatory? Not so much. This festival ain’t your mama’s bag of buttered popcorn and rom-com.

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.

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.
