Our favorite morsel from the blogs.

Foodbuzz is pitting blogger against blogger in Project Food Blog, a series of 10 challenges designed to test contestants' skills: cooking, photography, writing. There are 1,889 blog-testants for the challenge that started Monday and lasts 12 weeks. You can sign up for Foodbuzz, and vote for your favorites, though, like So You Think You Can Dance or something, ultimate scoring is in the hands of three judges: Food & Wine's Dana Cowin (the icy, elfin editor who turns up on Top Chef), Nancy Silverton, and Chez Pim's Pim Techamuanvivit. The winner gets, like, $10,000 and a year-long Foodbuzz platform.

We're handicapping two S.F. bloggers as heavily weighted contenders (both have blogged for SFoodie): Jun Belen, and Stephanie Im. Read Belen's first entry ― a memoir of squirrels and pork adobo ― at Jun-Blog. Then get a taste of Im's irrepressible personality at Lick My Spoon.

Read. And vote ― but hurry: First-round voting ends tomorrow at 6 p.m.

  • 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.'"
