This Week's Top Food Events: Magic Curry Kart, Cowgirl Creamery and Pisco Tasting

Manioc Maniac
Slow Food San Francisco will be screening “Mr. Bene Goes To Italy” on Saturday, April 4 at the Delancey Street Theatre. The film, a favorite of Slow Food founder Carlo Petrini, follows the journey of Benedito Batista da Silva, an authority on manioc flour production in the Brazilian Pará State (leave it to Slow Food to find something obscure!). The screening is followed by a reception; tickets are $15 and can be purchased here.

What An East Coaster Needs To Know About SF Food

My brother was visiting from Boston last weekend and so I did what I often do—took him to a good cross-section of places the likes of which he doesn't have access to back East. Historically that roster of restaurants has included La Taqueria (because, I don't care what they say, Anna's Taqueria can't hold a candle), Chez Panisse and something in the Ferry Building, often Hog Island Oyster Co. It's always fun to watch someone experience a place you love for the first time, especially if, like my brother, they're good eaters. This time around I brought him to Beretta and as we poured over the cocktail list the divide between Boston and San Francisco widened.

SF's Top Chocolatier Gets Comfortable

A box from Recchiuti Confections landed on my desk this morning. You know when it's Recchiuti—who I'd deem one of the best chocolatiers in the country—it's going to be something exciting, something refined, something special. But before I even opened the box, I did a little envisioning: Please don't be truffles! Please don't be some fancy chocolate Easter egg!

Ali Hewson of Edun's Fillmore Pop Up Shop: "Buy Less But Buy Well"

Last week’s opening night for Edun’s Pop-Up Shop at Clary Sage Organics in Pacific Heights was a huge success - the store was filled to the brim with Bay Area fashion aficionados sipping on wine and sampling eco-conscious skin care products while taking turns trying on Edun’s new Spring Line.

Tommy Guerrero Jams at Mollusk Surf Shop to Promote Surf Flick, The Present

It's rare that San Franciscans make the trek to the Outer Sunset on a Friday evening.  But last Friday night, legendary skateboarder and artist Tommy Guerrero drew out the crowds to Mollusk Surf Shop for a concert to promote Thomas Campbell's latest surf flick, The Present.  The film premiered earlier this month and features some of the best surfers in the world, including Dane Reynolds, Joel Tudor, Ry Craike and Rob Machado.

 

Shopping for Small Feet

Footwear is, perhaps, the only realm of women’s fashion where those seeking the smallest sizes perpetually come up short-handed. In any other category, the woman seeking the smaller size will – in most stores, at least – have more options than her larger counterparts. But when it comes to shoes, the tiniest toes face the toughest challenge. And according to Suzette Standring of The Huffington Post, the problem is only getting worse.

The Dirtiest Word in the Restaurant Industry

The other day I was talking to a restaurant owner. He was complaining about the no-show—the person that ditches a reservation without bothering to cancel. I’d like to think that this is just a matter of ignorance, more than downright rude behavior. Diners just assume the restaurant will give your table away to someone else—no big deal, right?

Not exactly.

Here’s are what a couple industry insiders have to say:

Bhi Bhiman at Hotel Utah: God is a Warriors Fan and Satan Loves the Lakers

Bhi Bhiman strummed out a perfectly executed set to a packed crowd at the quaint Hotel Utah. His set included a couple previews from his forthcoming album, quite a few from The Cookbook, and our favorite, a track about how “God is a Warriors fan and Satan loves the Lakers.” There's some hometown pride for you.

Despite the fuzzy sound quality, Bhiman rose above it to deliver a solid set, keeping fans entranced by his voice for an entire hour. Overall, it was a great opening to a great evening and with strong vocals and lyrical originality, we predict Bhi Bhiman will soon be toppling over venues this size. He's definitely someone to keep your eyes on.
