 h1. Dear Readers,

 Our favorite film right now, "King Corn," premieres this week in New York, with openings around the country in coming months. It's the story of two men just out of college who decide to move to Iowa to plant an acre of corn -- and in doing so, discover just how pervasive corn is in our food system and how that affects our diet. 

 Along with a sense of humor, the film has a sense of wonder at how we got to this place with our food. Plus, there's loads of important information -- some of it conveyed, unforgettably, with Playskool figures. 

 We're thrilled that "King Corn" co-producer Curt Ellis is blogging on Culinate over the next several weeks. Join us in following Curt as he and his cohorts take the film around the country, talking cinema and talking corn.

 And finally, we've admired Hungry Planet since its release in 2005. Photographer Peter Menzel, who co-authored the book with his wife, Faith D'Aluisio, is interviewed on Culinate this week. If you haven't seen his gorgeous and thoughtful book, you're in for a treat. Especially if you win one of the signed copies we're giving away in the coming week.
