Highlights from the blog this week:

1. In his review of Bobby Deen's new television show, Not My Momma's Cooking, food TV reviewer Michael Leaverton keeps calling Paula Deen's cooking death-food. Not three days later, Paula Deen is finally going public with the fact that she has diabetes 2, having signed a contract to become the spokesperson for a pharmaceutical company.

2. Roving cocktail correspondent Lou Bustamante visits new Emeryville cocktail bar Honor and discovers the bar's Queen Anne's Revenge. SFoodie was going to make a quip about Montezuma's Revenge, then realized it sounded like a bad dad joke.

3. Not only does Tamara Palmer discover Apiece Desserts, a side project from Mifune Bistro pastry chef Yoko Fujii, she discovers that she enjoys cookies made with beets.

4. SFoodie announced this week that we will be tracking the countdown to the end of foie gras in California. Set your iPhone alarm to midnight on the morning of July 1, and keep checking the blog for our soon-to-grow list of places that serve foie gras. Just remember you set your alarm, and don't end up like this guy.

5. Commenter of the week: Andrew H., who not only defended SFoodie to a troll but, more importantly, schooled us as to the Japanese origins of the word "sando."

  • 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.'"
