Films for foodies
Sacramento is evolving into a city for foodies. With the nascent food-truck scene and local chef Adam Pechal's recent reality-show fame, it seems the city's culinary star is rising. And now, there's the Sacramento Food Film Festival, which Munchie Musings (www.munchiemusings.net) blogger Catherine Enfield founded last year. This year's edition, which takes place this weekend at the Guild Theater (2828 35th Street), features films, food tastings, a scavenger hunt and special guest speakers. Film highlights include The Quest for Local Honey, a documentary about honey bees in Nevada City, followed by a honey tasting (Friday, March 15, at 5:30 p.m.); and a screening of Symphony of the Soil, a documentary about soil, with guest speaker and producer Deborah Koons Garcia (Saturday, March 16, at 6:30 p.m.). Prices are $7 per film, $40 for a Friday pass (which includes two films plus discussions, honey and sushi tastings); $25 for a Saturday pass (five films, scavenger hunt and discussions); or $55 for an all-festival pass.
