OCD for OCD Sweets, and Whaling on Whalers

Posted By on Fri, Feb 18, 2011 at 1:51 PM


SFoodie's roundup of tips, news, and rants from the week in animal-free eats.

• Tofutti is set to release a vegan ricotta. This is huge news and I pray it is delicious. The second that it hits the market, I'll make approximately one million lasagnas.

  • Put us in a room with OCD Sweets caramels, and we're all like this.

• The Feb. 26 East Bay Vegan Bakesale is coming! They need bakers and volunteers, so help out because nothing is quite as delicious as baking for a good cause. Well, maybe eating for a good cause. That's actually probably more delicious.

• The meat industry is pissed about Meatless Monday. You know, because something BESIDES meat is being promoted ONE DAY A WEEK. For real, these people are unbelievable.

• Japanese "whale research" ships (read: murdering whales for no scientific purpose whatsoever) have called it quits for the rest of the winter because Sea Shepherd chased them out of the waters. Woohoo! What the Japanese whaling ships are doing violates the international moratorium on whaling and so their asses should be called the fuck out.

• SFoodie's own Tamara Palmer found the most amaaaazing-looking caramels ever and they're VEGAN. Currently only for sale at Other Avenues in S.F., but hopefully that will expand ASAP. I'll be eating these with a ferocity that makes Augustus Gloop look like the child that he is. Or was. Or never was. Whatever.

• The latest Good Housekeeping vegan cookbook is here! Yes! Now we can make chipped steak and serve it in Jell-O molds and it'll be VEGAN. God, I really need a traveling salesman husband who brings home clients to impress. I'd so Donna Reed that shit, you have no idea.

  • 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.'"
