NYT Cookbook Ultimate Potluck Draws SF Chefs and Mixologists

Posted By on Mon, Oct 18, 2010 at 9:30 AM

Former New York Times editor and current columnist Amanda Hesser will celebrate the release of The Essential New York Times Cookbook in San Francisco in just the right way, by hosting an "ultimate potluck cocktail brunch" thrown by SF Food Wars.

While SFFW is known for its lively culinary battles, this event is strictly about sharing cocktails, hors d'oeuvres, and sweet bites adapted from the book by Mourad Lahlou (Aziza), Louis Maldonado (Aziza), Melissa Chou (Aziza), Elisabeth Prueitt (Tartine Bakery), Chris Kronner (Bar Tartine), Jennifer Puccio (Marlowe), Jacques Bezuidenhout (Fifth Floor/Kimpton), Morgan Young (Fifth Floor), Jake Godby (Humphry Slocombe), Sean Vahey (Humphry Slocombe), Christa Manalo (Beretta), Adam Timney (Starbelly), Richie Nakano (Hapa Ramen), Bridget Batson (Gitane), and Jennifer Musty (Batter Bakery). Omnivore Books will have a pop-up shop to sell copies of the book, and Hesser will gladly sign.

  • 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.'"
