In it’s 11th year the Food Film Festival never disappoints us. It’s not just because we get to eat and watch at the same time but because the films are always stellar both in story and production value. The idea that food pairs with movies just warms our hearts in way that only an ex-Dinema Supperclub runner could love the Food Porn Party, sorta just like it sounds. October 19th-22nd in NYC.

This is a slight departure from our normal STUFF posts but we just couldn’t resist sharing stuff about the stuff we usually post. Seth Rogan and Evan Goldberg use their Superbad brains to write this animated film about grocery store products waiting to get purchased. The Sausage Party twist comes when the food realizes the bliss of being bought is actually a gruesome death sentence through us cooking and eating them. Full of F-Bombs and sexual innuendos, as well as animated food gore, this sounds like a rainy Sunday afternoon movie theater move. Don’t forget plenty of CVS candy and the herb of your choice. What? We meant like rosemary.
This post is a bit different from our usual events. It’s not only near and dear to our hearts and ‘hood BUT it’s an event, inside a game, inside a TV show, LIVE. Mouthful right? Mouth of seafood, if you back Ben’s Hunt for Dr. Klaw. TV project. Those of you who don’t remember the Underground Lobster Pound or Ben’s Hook, Line and Dinner – Read up. He does a fantastic job explaining the project and how to get involved over on Kickstarter. Check it out and join in the salt water adventure. See you on the Periscope show.
Michael Solomonov (one of our Philly Favs) and Brooklyn icon Saul Bolton share some of their favorite flavors from their favorite part of the world before the screening of In Search of Israeli Cuisine. The taste line up is eleven small-plate dishes. Some of the hits include grilled marinated eggplant with fenugreek tomato chutney, chicken pastilla with cinnamon and almonds, and quinoa, pea, and mint tabbouleh. No need to worry about being parched, Israeli wine, beer, and limonata will be on hand to keep things smooth. May 12th @ 6:15 PM in Brooklyn.
Foodstand is debuting their Food Book & Film Club which is exciting to begin with. They decided to debut with one of our an old friends and frequent collaborators, Ben Flanner, making this event doubly exciting. The Brooklyn Farmer follows the story of The Brooklyn Grange and their mission to create an urban farm network across New York City. Besides the screening their will be some networking, a Q+A and, of course, food and drink. We’re looking forward to this and FoodStands continued series. Monday, April 25 @ 6:00 PM in Brooklyn
