"The Future of Food" is happening now

I'm one of those people who want to know what's in my food...where it came from...who grew it...and what I can do with it. Of course before I even start down that path, I want to be sure it is safe and will continue to be safe while I cook it and consume it. The fact of the matter is, I believe at the very least, all the food in the marketplace should be safe. Safe for me, safe for my family and anyone I might want to serve it to. Its incredible to me that more and more food is arriving at the marketplace that isn't. Because I'm extremely interested in food, I'm aware of that, but so many others are not. Like it or not, we all need to be aware of what is happening to the food we eat every day and what impact it has on our health and our way of life, both now and in the future.

Slow Food Dallas is sponsoring the screening of "The Future of Food," produced by Deborah Koons Garcia. Deborah Koons Garcia is the widow of the famous rocker Jerry Garcia. Deborah has produced several documentaries and was concerned enough about what was happening around her to produce this one about genetically modified food. I think you'll find it enlightening and it just might change the way you shop, cook and eat.

The film is being screened at the Nasher Sculpture Center this Sunday afternoon at 2 pm in the private dining room at the Nasher. Tickets are available through Slow Food Dallas at their website: Seating is limited.
