Sushi making seems like such a veiled art, deceptively simple magic. Every year, Mikiko Ando, executive sushi chef of Delica Sushi Bar, pulls back that secret curtain and hosts a series of three hands-on sushi masterclasses that explore various forms of rolls, nigiri, and sashimi and offer knife skills for cutting sashimi and other ingredients. There are five more sessions this year, beginning with a roll course at Delica on April 15 and continuing through June. The three-hour instructionals are $100.

Urban Kitchen SF flies the Slow Food flag through a practical palette of classes that focus on singular subjects. Sure, you might be able to filet a small fish after getting through with Delica's classes, but can you take down a whole beast? Urban Kitchen meat man Dave the Butcher is collaborating with CUESA on April 18 to show cooks how to break down an entire goat. The two-hour course begins at 5:30 p.m. in CUESA's outdoor teaching kitchen in the front of the Ferry Building. Participants will leave with their edible carvings, recipe ideas, and a shiny boning knife that they will pledge to only use for goat meat (or non-human flesh). Tickets are $93.

After you've mastered that animal, the poor mushrooms won't have a chance to hide from you, especially after you've absorbed some hunting and gathering tips at forageSF's next wild mushroom cooking class on April 21. Patrick Hamilton, a self-described "mycochef," should help you distinguish between which ones are ready to be cooked into something delicious and which will make you sick and trip out (but not in a good way). Never go hungry in the shroomy jungle again with the advice offered here for $50.

  • 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.'"
