Food News: Insatiable- The Homaro Cantu Story at Chicago International Film Festival

From the Insatiable Facebook page
As many of you may know, the late Homaro Cantu holds a special place in the heart of the writers of this blog.  Not only did he inspire the creation of this blog in the first place, he supported, promoted, and encouraged us as this little site was first getting on its feet.  It is for that reason we have always considered him to be the guardian angel of Bunny and Brandy's Brunchtime Blog, because we experienced first hand his generosity, passion, and never ending capacity for kindness.

Film maker Brett A. Schwartz began filming a documentary about Homaro Cantu at a time when the chef's life was filled with a dizzying array of new projects, which all came to a halt with his untimely death.  After many years of cutting together intimate footage of Homaro in his element and interviews with some of the people who knew him best, Schwartz is finally getting a chance to bring his project to the public.

Insatiable: The Homaro Cantu Story is set for its final showing as part of the Chicago International Film Festival this evening at the 6:15 @ AMC River East.  Tickets can be purchased here and include not only entrance to the screening, but access to a special reception at Chez that will include a menu of hors d’oeuvres by former Moto Executive Chef, Richie Farina along with Chef D’Andre Carter former Executive Sous Chef of Moto and now Executive Chef of Feast & Imbibe. For those unable to attend tonight's event, Brandy will be posting her full recap of the evening in Wednesday's post.  We do hope to see some of you there tonight to help us support not only an important film, but to join us in celebrating the life of a brilliant chef and a wonderful man.
