Devour! Seattle
Author Kathleen Flinn and Chef John Sundstrom have partnered with Devour! The Food Film Fest, the world's largest food film festival, to bring a feast for the senses to Seattle.

Taking the culinary pop-up event to new heights, Devour! Seattle offers guests a taste of the Nova Scotia-based festival on June 4 with a food workshop featuring the province's famous seafood, Canadian-based food films and a dinner inspired by a feature documentary film.

The evening will kick off at 5 p.m. at Black Box Operations with a Taste of Nova Scotia Lobster demonstration and sampling, paired with Canada's award-winning Benjamin Bridge sparkling wines. Following the workshop, guests will be among the first to view Academy Award nominee Kim Nguyen's new documentary, The Empire of Scents along with two short films: Daylily Fritters, directed by Abe Giroux  Nova Scotia filmmaker and two-time James Beard Award nominee, and Pour Retourner directed by Scooter Corkle, Canadian filmmaker and winner of the Devour! Golden Tine Award for Best Short Drama in 2014.  

Following The Empire of Scents, Chef John Sundstrom and Chef Jason Lynch (Le Caveau, Nova Scotia) will host a dinner inspired by the film at Off the Record, the private event space that is part of Lark Restaurant. Starting at 8:30 p.m.  this will include three courses plus one in-theatre ameuse.

Tickets to the lobster demonstration cost $20.00, tickets to the film cost $12.00, and they can be purchased together as a combination package for $30.00. Tickets to dinner at Lark are $100.00 (including tax and gratuity; wine pairings extra). All three events can also be purchased together as a combination package for $125.00.

The pleasures of food, of the erotic, of family  form the very fabric of our emotional lives. And smell is an essential emotional trigger. There is more truth to call our sense of smell our sense of desire because it springs our passions. Smell moves us, subliminally and profoundly. It moves us to act and do things we are wholly unaware of. It enriches our lives, gives us with unspeakable joys. All along this feature-length documentary, central storylines take us into the world of smell. Many of them have the suspense, death-defying risk and insanity of a an ultimate quest. Others, are moments of pure poetry.

Filmed in five countries, this documentary takes us on an artistic journey through the lens of Kim Nguyen, nominee at the 2013 Oscars in the best foreign film category for War Witch. He integrates beauty, taste and poetry into the film, to the point where we can feel the inner sense of the Empire of Scents.

Lark is one of the Pacific Northwest's premier, artisan-focused restaurants.
Chef John Sundstrom's menu features locally-produced and organic cheese, charcuterie, vegetables, grains, fish, and meats, all prepared in season. We work with local artisans, farmers, and foragers to serve the best of each season.

Devour! The Food Film Fest is an international festival celebrating cinema, food and wine culture. The five-day festival takes place in the culinary epicentre of Nova Scotia  the town of Wolfville, Kings County. The festival is an experiential celebration of food on film, the culture of food and the dramatic impact it has on our day-to-day lives. The fifth edition of Devour! The Food Film Fest is slated for November 4-8, 2015.
