My own favorite celebrity cookbook.
  • My own favorite celebrity cookbook.

Highlights from the blog this week:

1. Carina Ost dredged the internet and pulled up 10 sopping, putrid celebrity cookbooks. Now that food has become the new rock, expect the System of a Down cupcake guide sometime soon.

2. Luis Chong continues to monitor San Francisco's ramen scene. This week, he samples the tonkotsu ramen at the new Ramen Doraku in Parkside.

3. We finally wrapped up the SFoodie's 92 with a few of our favorite places: Mission Chinese Food, Il Cane Rosso, and Cafe Jacqueline. You can find the full list of our 92 favorite dishes (this year) at the end of dish number 1, BBQ pork buns from Cafe Bakery.

4. I've been depressed all week about the departure of SFoodie editor John Birdsall, whose last day is today. I've been a fan of John's since we were reviewing restaurants for competitor newspapers, me at the East Bay Express and he at the Contra Costa Times. What a pleasure it has been to work with him for the past 17 months -- he's whip-smart, dedicated, a phenomenal writer, and an insightful chronicler of the SF street food movement. Thankfully, he's assembled a group of contributors that I'm thrilled to share the blog with, and I'm looking forward to following his byline as he takes on new writing projects.

  • 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.'"
