Longhouse Food Revival 2014

longhouse food revival 2014

The Longhouse Food Revival is coming up this weekend in Rensselaerville. Blurbage for the Saturday-Sunday event:

This annual gathering is the Woodstock of food--an intense, weekend symposium designed to raise the bar on how food stories are told and to connect generations of food-inspired artists, writers, web producers, documentary filmmakers, and broadcasters. Every year, LongHouse focuses on a single story to create a multi-media Pop-Up Food Magazine that allows participants to experience state-of-the-art food stories in short, documentary films, live interviews, photography, music, radio broadcast, spoken word, fine art, web-based mapping, and hands-on cooking. ...
Saturday, our Pop-Up Food Magazine will be joined by a remarkable bevy of presenters and food thought leaders, including: Jeni Britton Bauer (author and founder of Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams), food historian Bruce Kraig, Kat Kinsman (CNN's Eatocracy), Audrey Petty (author of Highrise Stories), Kim Severson (The New York Times) Amy Thielen (author of The New Midwestern Table and host of the Heartland Table on the food network), Ari Weinzweig (author and founder of Zingerman's Community of Businesses), and culinary historian, Michael Twitty, among others.

The weekend includes a handful of events, some of which are ticketed separately (there's also a whole-weekend ticket). If you're not looking to go for the whole day, the Live Fire Feast Saturday evening could be fun:

At our Live Fire Feast, chefs Alex Young (Zingerman's Roadhouse) and Carlos Gaytan (Chicago's Mexique) will be facing off in the Live-Fire-Cooking Arena, 'cuing up resolution to one of the Midwest's eternal questions: Oink vs. Moo. Chef Edward Lee (610 Magnolia and Milkwood in Louisville) is determined that we will eat our vegetables--and is turning out at least an acre's worth of handcrafted preserved and ash-cooked beauties.

(You might recognize Gaytan and Lee from Top Chef. Lee also appeared in one of the eps of the most recent season of Mind of a Chef.)

Tickets for the Saturday evening event are $120. But we hear you can get 50 percent off the ticket price by using the code "LIVEFIRE" (no quotes).

Say Something!

We'd really like you to take part in the conversation here at All Over Albany. But we do have a few rules here. Don't worry, they're easy. The first: be kind. The second: treat everyone else with the same respect you'd like to see in return. Cool? Great, post away. Comments are moderated so it might take a little while for your comment to show up. Thanks for being patient.
