Harvest :: Bread Flour

I know, bread again.  A few months ago I talked about the Tartine Bakery in San Francisco in a film about the bakery itself.  This time however, the film I want to share is not about the bakery and the break making process itself, but about the importance of the flour source.

There is something to be said about getting your food from a local and fairly natural source.  So much of what we eat is trucked across the country or processed beyond recognition.  This film makes the bread look good and sustainable at the same time.  Yes, I am one of those people that likes to live as sustainably as possible and part of that, to me, is eating as wholesomely and as locally as possible.  I’m not a big fan of processed and chemical laden foods.  This film makes me hungry just looking at it.

I wouldn’t say that this film has anything outstanding about the technicalities of its creation. But, I will say that I appreciate the message that it sends and proves that there are places that preserve the food culture of the area of origin and are making an effort to bring people natural and local food.
