Head To Head (To Tail) With Chris Cosentino

Posted By on Wed, Mar 5, 2008 at 9:00 AM

Gut-loving, mohawked Bay Area Chef Chris Cosentino of Incanto and Offal Good fame is in the Big Apple this week for his "Head to Tail Dinner" -- held last night at the Astor Center -- in its first time ever outside of Incanto. Anyway, Mediabistro's book publishing biz blog Galleycat snuck in for a face-to-face with Cosentino as he yakked away and dropped some characteristically salty wisdom about various animal innards he was preparing for the dinner: "If you're willing to kill it you should shut the fuck up and eat it all."

As a special treat for the squeamish, here are a few of the delicacies you missed on the Head To Tail Menu:

  • Porchetta di testa with radish and pecorino (that's marinated pig's head for the uninitiated)

  • Crudo of venison liver, with juniper, beets and balsamic

  • Beef heart tartar puttanesca

    • Pin It

    • 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.'"
