In Tomorrow’s Food, filmmaker Benny Vink beautifully captures Jonathan’s vision. There is a great deal wrong with the current food system. Meat consumption has disastrous consequences for the environment, and we eat too much food, too much fat and too much from the other side of the world. You can sit back and do nothing, or you can try to lead by example. The chef opted for the latter. In his restaurant Vork & Mes, he knows the origin of everything in his kitchen.
Jonathan’s menu is determined by what nature has to offer, not what diners demand. His ambition is not to earn a Michelin star but to change the way people think about food. With contagious enthusiasm, he introduces his suppliers. In the greenhouse near the restaurant, he lovingly grows beetroots, carrots, tomatoes and potatoes. "Products become more meaningful when you experience how much time and energy it takes to grow them,” he says. Compelling viewing that makes you want to pull on a pair of wellies and get your hands dirty.
Both on Friday and Saturday the film will be followed by a Q&A with director Benny Vink and chef Jonathan Karpathios. Jonathan will also give a workshop and a demonstration about real cooking and real food.
Tomorrow’s Food will have its world premiere at the Food Film Festival and has been selected for the FFF Feature-Length Food Film Competition 2014.
