Curried Favors 

Wednesday, Oct 7 2009
Curry is hard to pin down, like mole and salsa and drinks mixed by a college student. It exists in so many forms, in so many countries, that many of us never move beyond red, green, or yellow out of sheer uncertainty. Ranjan Dey does his part to change that, not only as chef and owner of New Delhi Restaurant, which for 20 years has served dishes based on royal Indian menus from centuries past, but also as a frequent lecturer. At Curries of the World: History and Tasting, presented by the Golden Gate Restaurant Association, Dey offers up stories on curry as well as its history and worldwide cultural impact. Then the tableware comes out, with more than 15 curries from India, China, Thailand, Trinidad, and Fiji.

  • 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.'"
