Contrary to what one might first think, the Omnivore Food Festival doesn’t encourage folks to eat just anything and everything. But it does support eating widely and intelligently from the best of what established and emerging young chefs are producing in world cuisine. June 2010 saw two days of classes, demonstrations, and culinary gatherings in Manhattan and Brooklyn. CANAPE couldn’t keep itself away from the sights, smells, and tastes.
n 1999, when its members were children, the Cajun band Feufollet arrived on the scene to announce that their rich musical traditional would not merely survive in the 21st century but prosper there. More than a decade and several critically acclaimed CDs later, the young Cajuns continue to balance tradition and innovation with superb musicianship. They tour frequently to help spread recognition of French New World cultures. CANAPE catches Chris Segura from Feufollet in the Big Apple.
3/ Charles Ferguson's "Inside Job"
Most people think of the Cannes Film Festival in terms of its famous red carpet, not in terms of red ink. But this year there was an entire film dedicated to red ink: the global financial crisis of 2008 that caused millions of people to lose their jobs, homes, and savings. The documentary Inside Job gives a comprehensive analysis of the meltdown. CANAPE catches director Charles Ferguson talking about his film in Cannes not that far from the red carpet.
