Debut screening of Ingredients film at Logan Square Kitchen

The next Local Food Wisdom Locavore event will feature both film and food when Logan Square Kitchen hosts the Chicago debut of the new documentary, Ingredients. I'm delighted that chef Matt Maroni, owner of gaztro-wagon, will be in th' house preparing a sampler of his locally-famous naanwiches with locally-sourced ingredients.

Here are the event details:

When: Tuesday, 22 February, beginning at 6:30 PM
Where: 2333 N Milwaukee Ave | Map | CTA bus: #56 Milwaukee
Cost: $25 per person (includes seat + food from gaztro-wagon)
Beverages: Cash bar with beer from Revolution and Haymarket
Tickets: Sold-out, via brownpapertickets.com
Previews: Chicagoist | Chicago Reader | Dining Chicago | Tasting Table Chicago | The Feast | Steve Dolinsky

The screening (~70 min) will be followed by a brief panel discussion featuring at least one guest farmer and a guest chef. Attendees will have an opportunity to purchase an advance copy of the Ingredients DVD, which will be commercially released in late March.
