Chronicle Foodies Celebrate Herbs, Master Gardeners

Posted By on Wed, Aug 22, 2007 at 12:17 PM


Battling weak soil, weeds, wind, birds and a "cluster of black syrupy stuff," which turned out to be black aphids, the Chronicle foodies celebrated their rooftop garden's fourth birthday with a herb-inspired lunch, proving once and for all that even newspaper writers can grow stuff.

Well, not exactly. The garden had to be rescued from the brink of annihilation six months ago by a well-wishing group of "master gardeners," which, just for the record, aren't "righteous" or "egocentric." Is that kind of like "master baiters"? Seriously, I had no idea master baiters existed either. Thank you Google.

There's also a nice group of six recipes inspired by their herbalicious garden booty. (I'll take the Garlic-Chile Rib Roast In A Thyme Nest, thank you) Along with an herb glossary. Any strawberry cough up there by chance?

  • 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.'"
