Enter to win tix to closing night, an evening devoted to local farmers & 100lbs of green chiles
The New York Food Film Festival goes out in a blaze of fiery green chiles as Takedown starter Matt Timms stops in to host one his signature food fights. 15 home cooks are handed 100 lbs of green chiles from New Mexico to cook up something special for the occasion. In addition to feasting on their concoctions, catch some short films about farmers in Long Island, the husband & wife team behind the Amagansett Sea Salt Co., and the cheese producers of Jasper Hill Farm in Vermont. And if all that isn't enough to wet your whistle, La Newyorkina is supplying a dessert bar, a fine assortment of alcoholic beverages are being poured, and the winners of the festival's film awards are to be announced. Proceeds from the closing night go to the Food Bank of New York City.
