Delicious Homous With Pesto

pesto-homous-largerSome people eat crackers with homous. I eat homous with crackers — and then only because the latter are necessary as an eating utensil.

I often make my own humous, but am not above buying it when I don’t have time or am not in the mood to haul out the food processor and get creative.

I tried Royal Gourmet Foods pesto homous a while back and, even by my standards, it was inhaled pretty quickly. I didn’t share much of it, either. (No regrets, get your own.)

Unfortunately, the company website doesn’t provide info on the product, despite a link called “Product Details” (which leads to a blank page). My email to the company didn’t get a response either. The container has gone on to its next life via the recycling depot, so all I can tell you is it tasted good, and is made by a company in Burnaby.

Food Fight: a Story of Culinary Revolt

More and more people are waking up to discover that our current commercial food supply model is just not working. Our food choices are dwindling and the quality of what is offered is adequate, at best. But, what can we do about it?

Food Fight: a story of culinary revolt, a multiple award-winning documentary showing at this year’s Projecting Change Film Festival (Vancouver), takes a look at alternatives to the current commercial food supply. By exploring the economic, health, and quality issues surrounding the current corporate-focused model, Food Fight offers insight into who is really producing our food and how it adversely affects communities and individuals.

Sure to be a fascinating look at a current issue, Food Fight maintains that every one of us has a choice of where we purchase our food and can have a profound effect on how food is produced in the future. In short, the real-world solution is that communities must take back responsibility for their own food supply.

As a bonus, each film at the Projecting Change Film Festival offers a speaker’s component. The speakers for Food Fight will be representatives from Farm Folk City Folk and UBC Farms.

Food Fight: a story of culinary revolt shows on Friday, April 3 at 7pm at Fifth Avenue Theatres (2110 Burrard Street, Vancouver). Order tickets online; $10 each for film and speaker.
