Opening Today: A Place at the Table

Tom Colicchio didn't live-tweet this week's Top Chef finale, but he had a decent excuse: the JBF Award winner was attending the premiere of A Place at the Table, a new documentary about hunger in America, co-directed by his wife, Lori Silverbush, and Kristi Jacobson. The film, which was shown at Sundance, follows three individuals who struggle with food insecurity, and includes commentary from Colicchio, actor Jeff Bridges, author Raj Patel, nutrition policy expert Marion Nestle, and others. A Place at the Table opens today, so have a look at the list of theaters that are showing this important work. Watch the official trailer below:

Video: Peter Chang Returns to the James Beard House

Nearly three years after he was profiled in The New Yorker (subscription required), the famously itinerant Peter Chang seems to have gingerly set down roots. He splits his dinner shifts among three different Chinese restaurants in central Virginia, and though it's said that his exact location on any given night remains anybody's guess, we managed to pin him down for a celebration of the Year of the Snake at the James Beard House. You can watch a short video of Chang working in the kitchen below. A film from his 2012 event can be seen here.

Watch the clip below, or be sure to look up if you find yourself at the junction of Broadway and Seventh Avenue this holiday season.
