Review by John Delia

We all eat food in some form or another. And we trust that it comes to us in a safe and wholesome way to feed our bodies. In fact, a good percentage of us are choosy of what we eat, how it is cooked, and how it’s served. But, when a business needs meat quick and plenty of it, or wants to keep prices down, they may be buying it from factory farms. Enter the documentary Eating Animals, an investigative look at raising chickens, cattle and hogs for human consumption. Read more…

Review by John Delia

Hazel, we’re having Deli tonight. After seeing the documentary Deli Man I felt like I could run out and get one of the most sought after sandwiches in America, the Jewish Pastrami on rye with mustard. Umm why ‘sought after?’ Because where there were once thousands of delicatessens in New York City alone, we are down to only 150 left in the United States. And, there’s not one real New York style deli within 50 miles of where I live. Read more…
