Cheeses, Grubs, and Halloween Candies: This Week in Food Bloggery

Posted By on Fri, Oct 21, 2011 at 5:00 PM


Highlights from the blog this week:

1. Ben Narasin writes about the sheep's milk cheeses produced by Barinaga Ranch. The Marin-based cheesemaker lets her ewes graze outdoors all year, and only makes cheeses from the milk they produce in spring and summer. What they do all winter: Watch America's Next Top Model, like the rest of us.

2. Alanna Hale spent a few hours with Matthew Accarrino at SPQR, talking to the chef about his blend of Italian and American traditions and coaxing the recipe for his farro pasta with salumi, buttermilk, and poppy seeds out of him. Find part 1 of the interview here and part 2 here.

3. On SFoodie, Peter Jamison introduces this week's cover story, a profile of the insect-eaters behind Don Bugito and, which required him to sample larva and figure out how to describe the particular crunch of a cricket exoskeleton.

4. Now in charge of the "Cocktail of the Week" column, Lou Bustamante samples Bar Agricole's Moonraker at Bar Agricole. Yes, we want it, too.

5. Because you don't want to end up with a house full of Snickers Minis, and you don't want to be that embarrassing dad who gives out bags of organic peanuts, Laura Beck has rounded up a list of five high-quality, non-mortifying Halloween candies to hand out.

  • 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.'"
