ABOUT THE FILM
In the film, Jane Ko, Austin’s top food blogger hosts our journey from farm to table with innovative chefs, urban farms, and more across the city.
In this episode, we follow two ingredients through Austin: goat’s milk and honey. We meet with urban farmer Francesca Hernandez, the owner of Whirlaway Farms, then try a pizza at Bufalina with fresh-made goat’s cheese sourced directly from her farm. Next we visit the Sustainable Food Center and meet resident beekeeper Tara Chapman who also owns Two Hives Honey before finally cooling off with some honey brewed beverages, or craft mead, at Meridian Hive.
Following the screening we will discuss Food and Culture in Media today with guest speakers:
Jane Ko, Austin food blogger “A Taste of KoKo”
Dawn Weston, Associate Publisher at Edible Austin
Ronda Rutledge, Executive Director of Sustainable Food Center
with more TBA!
