Chinese Food and a Movie

Friday, 25 December 2009

Greetings from the Hazon Food Conference!!!

It’s erev Nitl Nacht. So what would be more appropriate for a gathering of 630 Jews from 29 states and 5 countries to do this evening than Chinese food and a movie!

Of course, Chinese food at a sustainable, crunchy food conference was a miso soup that had tofu and seaweed and a stir-fry with seasonal veggies and tofu. I really, REALLY don’t like tofu. But I must admit that the stir-fry was delicious. Extremely flavourful.

Movie options:

Food, Inc.
Vanishing of the Bees
The Garden
A Home on the Range: The Jewish Chicken Ranchers of Petaluma and “Song of a Jewish Cowboy
Supersize Me: A Film of Epic Portions (Teens only)
What’s on Your Plate (Grades K-6)

Any guesses on which movie Frume Sarah viewed this evening????

    Aha! I knew when you described where you are going, it would be Hazon. If you meet David Rendsburg, you can tell him I say hello. I do work for his father.

    I’m not big on tofu either, but this sounds good: “stir-fry with seasonal veggies”

      I actually never had a chance to meet up with him. There were over 600 people here…

    My guess: Petaluma. At least, that’s that’s what I would have selected!

    If they didn’t card you: What’s On Your Plate?
    If carded: The Garden.

      Nope to both! Though they looked good…

    So it wasn’t Songs of a Jewish Cowboy? (Couldn’t tell if that is different from Petaluma).

    I saw Avatar, but if I had been there, I probably would have seen the Bees.

      I think that it was two different shorts.

      Bees looked good…

    Believe-it-or-not… I had never seen Food, Inc.. SO I grabbed the opportunity and it was a really heavy film. I came away wishing that the director had presented a nechemta — a source of comfort. Instead, I went back to my room really hungry…and felt bad about any potential food choice!
