The best way to enjoy Malaysian food is with your hands. Messy hands are a compliment to the chef; the messier, the better, says chef Azalina Eusope. And so we did get our hands messy and had a lot of fun while making Malaysian food with Eusope at a cooking class she conducted last night at La Cocina. Eusope, a tiny lady with a big personality, is the chef and owner of Malaysian Lacy Crepes by Azalina at the Saturday Alemany farmers' market, and Friday nights at Off the Grid at Fort Mason Center.

We cooked shrimp in a colorful and flavorful chile-tamarind sauce (sambal tumis); sliced, diced, and stir-fried vegetables (sayur campur); cooked rice and lentils in a delicious hodgepodge of spices (nasi kunvit kacang); and steamed banana cakes wrapped in banana leaves (lepat pisang).

  • 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.'"
