Jim `N Nick’s Chef to Lead Discussion of ‘Eating Alabama’ Documentary Oct. 17

Posted by Sean Flynt on 2012-10-16

eatingalabamaSamford’s Student Dietetic Association and the Restoring Eden student organization will present a free public screening of the award-winning Eating Alabama documentary Wednesday, Oct. 17, 4-5:30 p.m. in the university’s Christenbery Planetarium.

Drew Robinson, Executive Chef of the Jim 'N Nick's restaurants will lead a discussion following the film. He will discuss local food, its importance, and his role in the Birmingham food industry.

Eating Alabama documents the story of a young couple who return to their home state in search of a simpler life. Here, they set out to eat the way their grandparents did--locally and seasonally. As they navigate the agricultural-industrial complex, they soon realize that nearly everything about the food system has changed since farmers once populated their family histories. A thoughtful and often funny essay on community, the South and sustainability, Eating Alabama is a story about why food matters.
