Handmade pasta can be amazing. Or frightful, depending on whose hands are doing the making.

Pristine ingredients can make it extra-amazing in the right hands. That's the lesson promised for Soul Food Farm's second farm kitchen workshop, this one focused on pasta made from scratch with eggs ― naturally ― from the Vacaville cult pastured-poultry farm. The instructor: Chez Panisse-trained Samin Nosrat, who, since the closing of Berkeley's Eccolo (she was sous chef), has had her hands in plenty of pristine projects. Nosrat will demo tagliatelle and hand-torn stracetti, ravioli, tortellini, lasagna, and farfalle, a list that makes our hands ache just reading it. "The group will lunch on their pasta feast in the farm's olive grove," the event description goes, "and everyone will take home some pasta as well as a recipe guide."

If only everyone could take home Nosrat's talent and a flat of eggs. Details after the jump.

  • 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.'"
