Food Film Fundraiser Fun

Flatirons Food Film Festival benefit a delicious evening.

FlatironsFoodFilmFest-logoBoulder are area foodniks (and a few filmniks) gathered yesterday evening in the spacious new lobby of the Dairy Art Center “Film, Chefs, Glorious Song,” to benefit the Flatirons Food Film Festival, coming up October 20 – 23. I’ll be out of the country then, but I’m glad I was here for the fundraiser. Kudos to organizer Julia Joun and to the chefs, sponsors, purveyors and volunteers who made this happen. Here are some images. And yes, there were wine and beer offerings too.
