Kauffman's Five: This Week in Food Bloggery

Posted By on Fri, Mar 5, 2010 at 5:37 PM

Five high points from the blog and beyond this week:

1. I've been intrigued by naturally fermented sodas since I discovered Fentimans ginger beer and burdock soda in a Seattle drinks case. Tamara Palmer spied a local brew from Eatwell Farms made with whey and rose geranium.

2. Andrew Smith is one of the most venerated culinary historians in the country. His new book, Eating History ― which he's reading from at Omnivore next Friday ― looks at 30 turning points in the evolution of American food.


3. Bite o' the week: The bibimbap

at Han Il Kwan ― not just for the 20 million side dishes, which

were great, but the extreme temperature of the stone bowl, which

produced the crispest crust on the rice that I've tasted in years.

4. Every Sunday, Ta-Wei Lin turns Doc's Clock into Three

Papayas Brunch, yet another improbable-sounding pop-up that Andrew

Simmons swears serves a beef shortrib curry with magical properties.

5. I'm going to take this one last opportunity to toot John Birdsall's

horn (oh, dear, that didn't sound right): SFoodie's editor and our great

contributors just earned this very blog a nomination for an IACP

Bert Greene award.

  • 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.'"
