Hubert Keller at Burger Bar. - FLICKR/BITTERMELON

To be in the presence of witty chef and restaurateur Hubert Keller is to be instantly charmed. This is probably why the French expatriate can operate an elegant and timeless French restaurant (Fleur De Lys) at the same time as he can hawk stunt burgers and logo-imprinted panties atop a Union Square department store (Burger Bar). His cooking series Hubert Keller: Secrets of a Chef contains such convincingly attractive demonstrations that viewers can believe they can actually reproduce his dishes.

In support of his memoir slash cookbook Souvenirs: Stories and Recipes From My Life, Keller appears for a free talk and signing tomorrow (Nov. 29) from 6-7 p.m. at Omnivore Books on Food. Accompanying him will be free wine courtesy of Smith-Madrone Winery and, most likely, his wife. So don't get any ideas, you flirt.

  • 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.'"
