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.
Narrated by Bebe Neuwirth and directed by Robert Bates, INGREDIENTS is a fun, open-minded film that will satiate both veteran slow-food fans and the uninitiated alike.

It was interesting to learn that the new farmers have learned that they farm the soil and not the plant to obtain a more natural, organic product with more succulent flavor than the “Industrial farmers” of today. This principle also applies to our rancher who supply the meat source.
I did not realize that today’s local farmers markets are allowing the “heirloom” variety of vegetable and fruits to be reintroduced, because you can’t find them in a supermarket of today.
I could not believe that on the American Census – Farmer is not even listed on the list of Occupations. We need to support our farmers and preserve our land because eventually there will not be farm land available at this rate to supply the needed food supply.
