Free Pickling Class

Where: Macy's Union Square, 170 O'Farrell (at Stockton), 397-3333

When: Sat., Feb. 5, 2 p.m.

Cost: Free

The rundown: Salt your pork, pickle your peppers. It's not just meat that needs preservation in the long winter months, and the other half of Good Food Month's charcuterie week is dedicated to pickling. Karen Solomon, author of Jam It, Pickle It, Cure It, will co-teach a free workshop on Saturday that spans a range of pickling techniques, from the standard (vinegar) to the chic (miso). Co-host JoEllen DeNicola, a Good Food Awards finalist, will also show you how to make her storied arame and ginger sauerkraut salad. There will be lots of tasting, and the two picklers will stick around after class to sign books. Macy's says the signing won't last long, though, so bully your way to the front before Solomon and DeNicola are whisked off to their escape helicopters.

  • 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.'"
