Jewish cooking expert and New York Times contributor Joan Nathan is rightly called "the queen of Jewish cooking" -- she has authored 10 books on the subject and has a PBS series. For her newest project, Nathan decided to investigate what Jewish cooking means... in France. The resulting book, Quiches, Kugels and Couscous: My Search for Jewish Cooking in France, has a trove of 200 recipes.

Next Tuesday, Nathan will hold court at a Hayes Street Grill luncheon, which is sponsored by the JCC. She will talk about her journeys into kitchens in Paris, Alsace, and the Loire

Valley, where she explored the ways that Sephardic Jewish immigrants, mainly from North

Africa, have introduced new flavors into French cuisine.

Luncheon with Joan Nathan

When: Tues., Dec. 7, 12 p.m.

Where: Hayes Street Grill, 320 Hayes St. (at Franklin).

Cost: $50 (JCC members)-$65. For tickets, call 292-1233 or visit the JCC website.

  • 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.'"
