Jon Steinman is host of the Deconstructing Dinner television series that will be screening at the Civic Theatre on September 16 at 7 p.m.

Deconstructing Dinner’s official launch at Nelson Civic Theatre

Jon Steinman is inviting the community to the official theatrical premiere of the four remaining episodes yet to screen in Nelson.

Since 2006, Deconstructing Dinner has been one of North America’s most consistent sources of media examining the state of our food systems and the future of food, with all of it coming from right here in Nelson.

The internationally-syndicated radio show and podcast is now a documentary-multimedia series produced by ichannel in partnership with the Canadian Media Fund, Deconstructing Dinner’s Jon Steinman and James Beard and award-winning filmmaker Declan O’Driscoll. Music for the series is by the Kootenay’s very own Emmy-nominated musician, Adham Shaikh.

On the same evening of the national television launch on ichannel, Jon Steinman is inviting the community on Monday, September 16 to the official theatrical premiere of the four remaining episodes yet to screen in Nelson.

Each episode of the series focuses on one food — Eggs, Garlic, Tomatoes, Honey, Wheat and Pork — the latter  two episodes have already screened in Nelson at the annual Deconstructing Dinner Film Festival. Episodes employ the wisdom of six highly-respected chefs who have all cultivated unique relationships with the people, places and animals producing their ingredients.

The remaining four episodes also feature a number of Kootenay locals including Stefan Himmer, Eva Schindler, JoAnn Lowell, Patryk Baryla (Postman Pat), Christoph Martens and the Hills Garlic Festival. A number of webisodes will also be shared at the event.

For those unable to make it out to the launch, commencing September 16 at 5 p.m. and extending through October, an episode will be released each week on ichannel and the series web site. Check with your local cable or satellite TV provider on how to order the channel.

Each episode will be accompanied by eight supporting webisodes appearing exclusively on the web site. The site will also become home to all-new podcasts, the 193-episode archive of the Deconstructing Dinner radio show, a blog, recipe folder and other interactive features.

Early arrival is recommended to secure a seat at the Civic Theatre. The event begins at 7 p.m. Tickets are $15.
