Oooo! Oooo! Oooo! The lineup for the NYC Food Film Fesetival was released today. What’s so special? It’s “a cinematic scratch n’ sniff” — you see the movie, you taste the food. Can’t wait for June 23-27.
A few I’m looking forward to:

Meet Oysterman Mike Osinski whose Greenpoint, Long Island oysters are so local that they go from water-to-table in NYC in the same day.

A portrait of Brooklyn knifemaker Joel Bukiewicz and his custom-made chef’s knives.
Obsessives: Urban Farmer
