Our favorite morsels from the food blogs.

Gratuitous cruelty alert: Unless you relish the sight of a sharp wooden implement piercing an animal's heart, and that same implement piercing a fellow animal's freakishly swollen liver, do NOT peek at the Beer & Nosh pic of foie gras and duck heart on a stick from last night's Mission Street Food dinner.

Gratuitous pain alert: Hot Food Porn serves up a slice of kitchen verité, the first in a promised series of in-the-trenches stories of life on the line (restaurant line, that is). Here's a blood-smeared taste: I have just cut off 1/3 of my middle fingernail and part of my flesh into a sea of 1 mm by 1 mm brunoise chopped red peppers with my Wusthof Classic Santoku (I knew I hated that bloody knife).

Gratuitious headache alert: In case you overdo it this weekend, Nate Courtland of LA Weekly's Squid Ink grinds out a hangover remedy classy enough to mask as brunch: Spanish tortilla with basil aioli. Reads like it'd go great with a beer.

  • 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.'"
