Our favorite morsel from the food blogs.

More like ClogHer: Bay Area Bites' Stephanie Im was all starstruck at Saturday's BlogHer Food '09. Im's excitement to be in the same ballroom with the bloggers that inspired her is, well, inspiring: Then she focuses on this year's Chocolate Adventure Contest, a co-promo by TuttiFoodie and Scharffen Berger. The challenge? Use one or more of 16 ingredients, paired with chocolate, to devise a winning recipe. Here's the nasty bit: At the conference, contest judge Elizabeth Falkner packed 11 of them into a big chocolate box: "homemade pandan-flavored marshmallow, peanut butter, cumin, and corn nuts, among other things," observes Im. Then, attendees donned latex gloves -- a single one, MJ-style -- and literally dug in, pulling out filthy-looking handfuls of brown, goodie-studded goo to gnaw off a cocktail napkin. See Im's photos and ponder the grossness. Besides being so, so wrong, it suggests yet another food rule of thumb, something to stand alongside Never order sushi on a Monday. Ready?

  • 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.'"
