Last weekend we donned our aprons, rolled up our sleeves, and, for $50, joined an intimate class of foodies to learn how to make delicious homemade Indian food from Feeley and West Bengal native Jharna Mookherjee (aka Auntie Jharna).

We toasted spices and chiles and made our own garam masala, a blend of ground spices common in Indian and South Asian cuisine, which we used to make tasty chicken kofta with mint chutney, chicken curry, and saag paneer.

In all his classes, Feely charmingly mixes hands-on instructions with interesting stories from his rich experience as a culinary instructor in Goa, India. He also shares a lot of cool of cooking tips, from roasting whole coconuts to making homemade paneer, as well as tips on where he shops for spices and ingredients. He keeps his classes small and very relaxed, and delicious food is always guaranteed. Stay tuned to SFoodie for information on future classes.

  • 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.'"
