There are many things to love about ‘Ingredients’: the beautiful cinematography, the inspiring interviews, the coverage of the local food movement. But in the end, its the cheeky ‘Who’s your farmer’ tagline that takes the cake. Its a loaded question though. With foods reaching our shores from as far as China and Somalia, you’ve got to ask what happened to local agriculture
The film documents the symbiotic relationship between restauranteurs and farmers in different parts of America to bring viewers a better understanding of local food and the farm to table movement. Then come the local farmers’ markets and children’s education with field trips and the like. Interviews with chefs and farmers are the mainstay of the film, where farmers passionate about good, healthy produce and sustainability share their views and vision for a better earth.
