The Top 10 Real Media Short Films

Real Food Media is having a short food film contest.  Each film is only a couple of minutes long, each one about food in some way.  Subjects range from women in the Congo building better lives for themselves by growing their own food to a crazy Snail farmer in Vienna.

You can binge watch all of them and then vote for your favorite here.  Or you can watch one each day right here on Urbanfoodguy.  I loved them all and think it’s going to be really tough trying to figure out which one to vote for!   After viewing them all I thought it would be a good idea to feature one a day here to give each one there do.  I hope you enjoy them as much as I did.Screen Shot 2015-02-24 at 12.59.10 PM

Growing Good Bugs | 2015 Real Food Media Contest Finalist from Real Food Media Project on Vimeo.

This video is about how good bugs can be used to combat other bad bugs and create a natural balance in farming with the ultimate goal of eliminating pesticides.  I choose this as the first one as it continues the discussion started this week in the price of organic conversation in the expensive grapefruit post.  Annoyingly all these videos are locked, click the link to go to Vimeo to view.

About urbanfoodguy

I'm a self taught cook with a dedication to buying and eating food that is as humanely and sustainably raised as possible. Which is why in addition to recipes you will see a lot of environmental/political reporting here. I started cooking when I was about 6, it's something I always loved to do. Watching Graham Kerr - aka "The Galloping Gourmet" - was what got me started and I have never really looked back. Over the years I've been a private chef, a caterer, and a food stylist for magazines such as Bon Appétit, Food & Wine, Real Simple, Oprah, Martha Stewart's Everyday Food and many more. I've also worked in the prep kitchen for the Food Network on the Bobby Flay and Paula Deen shows. Now I work at home in my kitchen sharing with you here recipes that I create or that other people have created that inspire me and I think you will like. I love my neighborhood (the Lower East Side of Manhattan) and I love to travel. Because NYC is such a big place I tend to focus mostly on my 'hood and the ones that are close by: The East Village, Bowery, Chinatown and Williamsburg. My love of travel has no limits really, I'm always ready to get on a plane. I was lucky enough to have a business for many years that allowed me to spend a lot of time in South East Asia. These days I've been spending time in Mexico, Germany, Canada and the West Coast of the U.S., but check back you never know where I might end up. I do consulting, cooking classes, and freelance lifestyle writing so if you are interested please send me a note:
