Breaking: There Is Something Chef Chris Cosentino Won't Eat

Posted By on Fri, Dec 14, 2007 at 9:00 AM


Balut is a Philippine delicacy, a dish clearly not for the faint of heart, Southeast Asians excluded. It's a fertilized duck or chicken egg containing an embryo ... boiled alive! (Bwah ha ha ha). Cosentino, well-known for his fanatical love of offal and organ meats, has finally met his match it seems. His tiny, pink, embryonic match:

"As hard as I tried I couldn’t get it down, and I can eat almost anything thrown my way ... The crunch of the bones and the tickle of the feathers are hard to get used to.I know this is a common dish in many countries but for me it was way over the line."

  • 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.'"
