Farming & Flavor

The film “Food Fight” will be showing at the Princeton Environmental Film Festival today at 4 pm followed by a panel discussion on “Farming Practices & Flavor” with great reps from Eno Terra, bent spoon, Princeton University, Whole Earth Center, Rojo’s Roastery & Bobolink Farm.

Here’s a description of the program:

The film will be followed by a panel discussion called “Farming and Flavor” moderated by Fran McManus, Whole Earth Center and UnderstandingFlavor.com

Panel: Chris Albrecht, Executive Chef at Eno Terra, Gab Carbone, co-owner and artisan ice cream and confection maker at the bent spoon, J. David Waldman, owner and roaster at Rojo’s Roastery, and Jonathan White, farmer and cheesemaker at Bobolink Farm.

Flavor is often cited as one reason that foods produced on small-scale farms are better than mass produced foods. But what does that mean? How do foods produced on small farms differ from their industrial counterparts? What differences do chefs and artisan processors find in the way these foods behave in the kitchen? How does having a direct relationship with the farm change the way chefs and processors handle these products? How do farming practices influence the flavor of the end product? This panel brings together the perspectives of farmers, chefs, and artisan processors to explore the story behind the claim that ingredients raised on small-scale farms deliver the best flavor.

See ya there!
