What you eat is what you are – A list of must-see documentaries & films on food

Screen shot 2012-09-26 at 13.24.55

On the list of family films that make us really laugh, those by Louis de Funes rank highly. Very French and very 70′s, favourites include Rabbi Jacob, Oscar or La Folie des Grandeurs.There is one I particularly like, called l’Aile ou la cuisse (The Wing and the Thigh), a criticism of processed food (industrie agro-alimentaire), a hilarious parody yet very visionary, and a good introduction to food issues for younger generations.

Les Landes, South West of France

IMG_37951-768x1024

I have spent all my summers in Les Landes as a child. My parents fall in love with the place and bought a house there soon after I was born. Les Landes is located in South West of France; it is a long strip  that goes from South of Bordeaux to North of Biarritz. It was planted with pine trees under Napoleon, to fix the moving sand ground.

Flamenco shoes go ballerinas

 

Like many other kids her age, little Isis Van Leeuwen wants to wear her Spanish flamenco shoes all day. Like many mothers, Hiskia doesn’t want her daughter to be a clone of Suri Cruise. Off the heels! …she started Gestipt,  a collection of stylish shoes that will fit under a dress and still survive the playground. The little Spanish shoe factory  that produces the Gestipt ballerinas has a lot of competition from Asia and  Hiskia really likes that – on a small level – she can help them keep the tradition of shoemaking in Spain alive. I is sure many mothers will like the idea : style, comfort, and support to a small “local” production unit. Not to mention the very young flamenco addicts who will be be able to wear their spotty shoes all day long. Also available in plain red. Gestipt.com.

“I think the Toddler Generation is about to freak out over these T-shirts and maybe even more so over the awesome customized boxes they arrive in!

Shirts That Go has tapped into the pleasure zone of a toddler’s brain by introducing t-shirts (and their unique boxes) with fire trucks, ice cream trucks, trains, bulldozers, motorcycles, pirate ships, helicopters, fighter jets, planes and much more!”

Via planet awesome kids. Thanks Julia!
