  • Learn some new techniques at SFCS's new state-of-the-art teaching kitchen.

Last fall saw the opening of the San Francisco Cooking School, a new culinary education center in the Civic Center that offers professional degrees as well as classes for amateurs taught by some of the best chefs in the city. Today the school released the new lineup of winter "hands-on" classes for those not pursuing a culinary degree, and they sound like a pretty awesome way to make good on any cooking-related New Year's resolutions.

New classes include Modern Art Desserts taught by Blue Bottle pastry chefs Caitlin Freeman and Leah Rosenburg; Pickles and Preserves taught by Bar Tartine chef Cortney Burns; hog butchery taught by 4505 Meats' Ryan Farr; a Roman foods course taught by Locanda chef Anthony Strong; and a tasting workshop led by food writer and teacher Samin Nosrat.

The school also offers classes in basic knife skills, pastry-fundamentals, advanced techniques like sauce-making, recipe tasting and development, and many more. Check out the whole lineup on the San Francisco Cooking School website.

S.F. Cooking School will be holding a free-to-the-public open house on Saturday, January 19 from 12-3 p.m., where you can take a peek at the digs, hear about the roster of 75 classes, and enter a drawing to win a cooking class certificate valued at $160.

  • 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.'"
