Meatpaper -- It's What's For Dinner!

Posted By on Wed, Dec 19, 2007 at 1:17 PM

I’m not going to do much more than link to today’s NY Times article about Meatpaper [http://www.nytimes.com/2007/12/19/dining/19meat.html?_r=1&ref=todayspaper&oref=slogin], because it sounds so much like my cup of chai that I’m going to dash out and see if I can find both the just-out second issue AND the first on a newsstand before I resort to sending Meatpaper [http://www.meatpaper.com/] $9.95 for the first issue.

I’m not going to do much more than link to today’s NY Times article about Meatpaper [http://www.nytimes.com/2007/12/19/dining/19meat.html?_r=1&ref=todayspaper&oref=slogin], because it sounds so much like my cup of chai that I’m going to dash out and see if I can find both the just-out second issue AND the first on a newsstand before I resort to sending Meatpaper [http://www.meatpaper.com/] $9.95 for the first issue. How chic that the two adorable girls who publish the magazine were once “committed vegetarians” (“We find over and over again that bacon is the conversion meat”); how puzzling that Meatpaper comes out of San Francisco, and I haven’t yet seen a copy. But on with the fleischgeist!

Oh, I can’t help myself. I’ll just add that, when reading about Chris Cosentino (late of Next Iron Chef, still cooking his heart out – and kidneys, liver, and testicles, though of others -- at Incanto) and his article in the second issue of Meatpaper about his favorite offal (yes, heart), “Captain Beef Heart,” I immediately thought of M.F. K. Fisher’s day-long travail in (over)cooking a unfamiliar beef heart, which resulted in delicious gravy and inedible meat. When her father asked what it was, she asked him in return what he thought it was, and he replied “Dinosaur.”

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
