The Chicago Food Film Festival held it's Food Porn Party at Kendall College last Friday. It was a packed house! It was so very entertaining from the start! The VIP party included fun pics and varieties of Beverages from Warsteiner, Frei Wines, and other varieties of beverages. I loved the Ginger Ale and the Dry Pear Soda from The Dry Soda Company! Along with the beverages, Lee Ann Whippen, of Chicago Q, shared her Shrimp and Herb Infused Grits, Smoked Corn Salad and Dry Rubbed Apple Smoked Pork Slider on a Pretzel Roll. What an absolutely Delicious start to the evening!
IT was packed!
When the first short film started, an animated Candy, Popcorn, Soda and Hot Dog danced across the screen, as you would expect in a movie reminding everyone of concessions, These guys proceeded to act out a skit. The popcorn was aggressive and took out Mr. Candy and Mr. Hot Dog. Only the Popcorn and Soda were left standing. Mr. Popcorn turned to Mr. Soda and said he had better watch out he was getting thirsty. The crowd erupted in laughter during this Fabulous start to the evening of films. The Films proceeded to tantilize and tempt your taste buds, with items such as, Paloma Cocktail with Amagansett Sea Salt by Oleca Altos Tequila, Jarlsberg Fondue, and Warsteiner Beer Braised Ox Cheek. When the film was over, you would have that very item in front of you. What a great way to build anticipation for dinner. A noticeable theme of natural food prevailed through the entire evening.
The Good Food Project promotes a healthy Food Culture to Children. The Good Food Project extends beyond the children and making an impact on the community! Good food nourishes the body, mind and community. "Good food is a gift of the earth. The mission of the Good Food Project is to introduce children to the exquisite flavors of the earth's bounty to help them develop a lifelong love of good food and enjoy the benefits of a healthy life," states the Director, Susan Taylor.

It was a pleasure to meet all those associated with the Chicago Food Film Festival, Food Porn Party. It was a wonderful evening full of Fun and Fabulous Food and Beverages! I would highly recommend as a fun evening for all those 21 and over.
