Inspiring and rich, Ingredients unearths the roots of the local food movement and digs into the stories of the chefs, farmers and activists transforming our broken food system. This upbeat, beautifully-photographed film introduces us to the verdant farms and pioneering restaurants where good food is produced and served. From innovative farm-to-table programs in Harlem to picturesque sheep farms in Oregon's Willamette Valley, INGREDIENTS shows the heart of an alternative food system - healthy, sustainable and tasty. Through interviews with world-class chefs such as Alice Waters and Greg Higgins and sustainability-minded farmers in Oregon, New York and Ohio, INGREDIENTS weaves an uplifting tale that is equal parts earthy rebellion and mouth-watering homage.
"This is truly a wake up call to each person in our nation. One major statement stayed with me "pay the farmer now or pay the doctors later." This is my own view on the matter. The FDA is a most wicked marriage they aprove the GMO's and other junk food that make a sick and they approved the drugs that put us in the grave. Support your local farmers markets and eat better."
