Kauffman's Five: This Week in Food Bloggery

Posted By on Fri, Apr 9, 2010 at 4:51 PM

Five things I learned from SFoodie and beyond this week:

Danny Bowien.
  • Danny Bowien.
1. That SFoodie editor John Birdsall has great taste in doughnuts, only matched by his generosity in splitting a cornmeal-cherry-rosemary doughnut from Dynamo with me. It was even better than the huckleberry-Meyer lemon doughnut that had me reeling a few months back.

2. That tomorrow is the U.S. premiere of Eatrip, a film about the culture of food in Japan, and that the premiere after-party promises to be equally fascinating, featuring salted cherry blossoms, pickled walnuts, and smoked bonito that the director is bringing over on the plane. Please, please, please let them make it through customs.

3. That the reason Mission Burger's chef, Danny Bowien, has such big

guns is that he

was forced to do push-ups on the line. More than a few cooks in town would benefit from such a workout.

4. That California's propensity for wasting massive amounts of food is finally

getting major press ― two good articles appeared in the SF

Chronicle and Bay

Area Bites just this week.

5. That Food & Wine magazine agrees with me: Commis's

James Syhabout is one of the most innovative talents in the Bay

Area. Congratulations to Syhabout on being named one of this year's 10

F&W best new chefs. Now go make a reservation

at his restaurant.

  • 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.'"
