Top Chef Loses a Fan, San Francisco Sweets Gain THC

What's missing from this season's Top Chef? A little San Francisco magic, maybe.
  • What's missing from this season's Top Chef? A little San Francisco magic, maybe.

Highlights from the blog this week:

1. Carina Ost, our Top Chef chronicler, may be a devoted fan of the cooking show, but her patience with the series is wearing out. Quickfire, Bravo! Time to re-season this show. Maybe with a little extra Yigit Pura?

2. Alex Hochman posts a Q&A with Jamie Feuerman, owner of KidChow, which delivers healthful, organic meals to kids for a reasonable $5 to $7 per lunch. Hochman asks her what works, what doesn't, and whether her lunches are only for the wealthy. This, I hasten to add, doesn't go over so well. Hochman's kids may want to inspect their lunches a little extra closely for the next few days.

3. SFoodie contributors seem unusually educated about the pot-laced edibles for sale around town. Sean Timberlake weighs in on a few of his favorites.

4. This week, SFoodie editor John Birdsall and I switched up our lineup

― he's taken over Buzz Machine, spicing it up in the process, and I

launched a new column, Talking Points,

in which I pass on random tasting notes that don't fit into a column as

well as links to news stories that are catching the attention of food media types

around the country.

5. Birdsall also interviewed Amy Sherman

this week. Sherman is transforming BlackboardEats, which launched as a

simple restaurant-discount site, into something much more interesting.

  • 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.'"
