Food Film Fest Takes the Screen this Weekend

Food is ready for their close-up this weekend at the Food Film Festival, which will be held at Kendall College (900 North Branch) and offers a nice range of events, starting with a wine and sustainable food dinner Thursday night and followed by a Milwaukee-style Fish Fry on Friday, an avocado-laden competition and tasting Saturday, followed by an awards ceremony and an evening of whisky-centric film and Scottish grub.

The evening ends with sweet potato cobbler from Hoosier Mama. Magical, am I right?

Individual event tickets are available ($45-85 range), but your $250 VIP Pass gets you all the fixins.
