Museum of Vancouver: Home Grown Exhibition
I was in the big city last weekend, and walked by this VERRRRY SCARRRY display of SPOOKY candy/caramel apples. Halloween is this weekend, so I felt a proper FRIGHT would be in order! I absolutely love the MUMMY apple...crazy and creative...courtesy of The Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory on Robson Street.
I am constantly amazed at how important,and hip,the topic of FOOD has become. I was recently at an Interior design show in Vancouver, and The Museum of Vancouver had a booth. To tell you the truth, I didn't even know there WAS a Museum of Vancouver. It was nice of the lady at the booth not to call me an idiot, but to simply point out that they have gone through a Re-Branding. The other really interesting thing about them is that the exhibition that is on now, until January 2nd 2011, is called: " Home Grown: Local Sustainable Food ". I hope you will click on the link below and visit their website, but I will give you a little 'teaser'
" Home Grown is a photographic exploration of local food production and sustainable farming in Vancouver and the surrounding region, presented by MOV and FarmFolk/CityFolk, www.rarmfolkcityfolk.ca
What is also very interesting, is that TIDEScanada is sponsoring a speaker's series about food called Food and Beers. I am going to the December the 8th one, called Vancouver's New Food Writing.
It's great to be part of such an exciting and dynamic group as the FABULOUS FOODIE movement. Long may we eat, and drink, and grow food, and write about food and, and, and...
