Theater company’s benefit features ‘miracle fruit’

“Miracle fruit” — Synsepalum dulcificum to the degree-holding class — is a strange berry which has little taste of its own but which works to nullify and transform spicy, sour or bitter tastes, making them sweet. The New York Times had an article about it in May, with users saying it makes Tabasco sauce taste like sugar and lemon sorbet mixed with Guinness like a chocolate shake. Thus “the fruit of the poor lemon” becomes possible to eat.

Mugwumpin, the San Francisco theater company planning a trip to Cairo to a theater festival, will hold a fundraiser for the trip featuring the strange fruit on Saturday, Sep. 6 in Oakland. For more info, email

A spattering of SF food blogs

I was hungry when I decided to surf around for new blogs to peruse. And I guess one should not surf on an empty stomach, as I discovered a mini-community of food bloggers in the process, which managed to make me even hungrier. Or maybe one should surf on an empty stomach, as I also managed to stumble upon a number of cool San Francisco food blogs. Not only were they full of beautiful photos of mouth-watering food, they were also chockful of restaurant reviews, interesting recipes, and colorful insights on the culinary scene in the Bay Area (I believe some of them are professional chefs). I only managed to find 6 of them, but I’m sure there are more. Here they are for your perusal:

Just be forewarned that you may get hungry while visiting the above blogs.
