"Give a man a pickle and feed him for one day," says Happy Girl Kitchen, "teach him how to pickle and feed him and his friends for the rest of his life!"

HGK is based in the Santa Cruz Mountains and offers home canning workshops both there and in Oakland all year. The $125 fee includes a five-hour hands-on session, an organic meal made of fresh, local produce, and jars of everything made during class.

The 2010 schedule includes workshops on fermentation, cheese and kefir, pickles, spring berry jams and jellies, and tomatoes in both locations. SFoodie's extensive research of the Happy Girl Kitchen product line has yielded nothing but pleasant experiences, so it'd be nice to know some of those edible secrets to happiness.

  • 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.'"
