Happy St. Patrick’s Day everyone! Hopefully you all are out having fun today, but for anyone enjoying a relaxing day at home I have a wonderful movie recommendation for you. Last night, I had the pleasure of watching the film “Ingredients”. This documentary is entirely about the local food movement and is very fascinating.
There is a fantastic blend of imagery and imagination as the narrators fill your head with images of European towns filled with diverse fresh food and daily markets transposed next to our reality of agribusiness, food recalls, and monocrops. There are also countless interviews with real, local farmers who give histories of their farms in the context of market industrialization.
I highly recommend checking it out, and to make it even better it is available for instant stream via Netflix for anyone with access to service. For more info on the film click here or check out the trailer below.
