A smorgasbord of food-related films is on offer to awaken taste buds dulled by winter stodge at the sixth annual Food on Film Festival in Kingussie. Happily, when you leave the cinema, your mouth watering, there is a marketplace of delicious food on offer in the Festival’s own Food Hall, showcasing dozens of gourmet food suppliers. About to launch its sixth season, Food on Film has grown year on year in its offering of foodie films and film-worthy food, as well as the numbers attending. Aggie McKenzie, of “How Clean Is Your House?” will be celebrity chef in the Food Hall giving demon demonstrations of delicious dishes. The 2013 Festival promises a banquet of delicious surprises, including the Special Preview of “Papadopoulos & Son” set in a Greek fish and chip shop. The premiere will include film-themed food served to guests in their cinema seats, with a side dish of Greek dancing by Creative Dance Development Workers from Inverness’s Eden Court Theatre. It’s going to be a feast for the eyes, ears and taste buds. “Kalí óreksi” is the Greek for “bon appetit” and it’s bound to be a call resounding around Kingussie in February.
