Kauffman's Five: This Week in Food Bloggery
2. That tomorrow is the U.S. premiere of Eatrip, a film about the culture of food in Japan, and that the premiere after-party promises to be equally fascinating, featuring salted cherry blossoms, pickled walnuts, and smoked bonito that the director is bringing over on the plane. Please, please, please let them make it through customs.
4. That California's propensity for wasting massive amounts of food is finally getting major press ― two good articles appeared in the SF Chronicle and Bay Area Bites just this week.
5. That Food & Wine magazine agrees with me: Commis's James Syhabout is one of the most innovative talents in the Bay Area. Congratulations to Syhabout on being named one of this year's 10 F&W best new chefs. Now go make a reservation at his restaurant.
