when food isn’t food

Thanks to Reddit, I stumbled upon the filmmaker PES who creates stop-motion films with everyday objects as stand-ins for other everyday objects. My favorites are the food-related ones, obviously, but he has a beautiful new video called “The Deep” that features old metal objects as sea creatures. He also has one called “Roof Sex,” featuring furniture having sex on a roof, but that is for a different blog. Check them out, though. Hopefully they will whet your creative appetite.

And in food news, I am hosting a Producers & Buyers “Meet and Greet” tomorrow to enable growers to mingle with interested markets for the 2012 season. There have to be snacks at this sort of thing, naturally, so I have spent the past hours in the kitchen making:

  • Caramelized onion focaccia
  • Sweet lavender olive oil crackers (I described these as “romantic” earlier, and I stand by my statement)
  • Popcorn with nutritional yeast
  • Roasted beet salad with lemon vinaigrette and capers

Maybe some of the buyers will want to help me start a brand! A girl can dream.
