A few years ago, when we were gathering the courage to broaden out from entertainment writing into the culinary world, we stumbled on Oakland author Dianne Jacob's Will Write for Food at just the right time. Jacob's combination of insightful interviews with top working professionals and her own valuable tips helped us make the leap to food.

Jacob, a local coach, teacher, and editor, has updated the book (originally published in 2005) to reflect the rapidly changing landscape of food writing as it has moved online. The original was subtitled The Complete Guide to Writing Cookbooks, Restaurant Reviews, Articles, Memoir, Fiction, and More. That's changed to The Complete Guide to Writing Cookbooks, Blogs, Reviews, Memoir, and More. She presents her latest update this weekend at Omnivore Books, conveniently located just a few blocks from Saturday's SF Street Food Festival action.

  • 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.'"
