The rundown: Sure, you had falafel in Paris junior year in college, at that little Jewish place in the Marais that seemed so utterly cool, and you had your first inkling that French food is far more complex and diverse than the beret-baguette caricature you grew up believing. For Quiches, Kugels, and Couscous: My Search for Jewish Food in France, cookbook author Joan Nathan researched Jewish traditions in France like a scholar of family history, starting with Julius Caesar's conquest of Gaul. Show up and tell her thanks.

  • 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.'"
