Folks behind "Ideas in Food" holding dinner, class in SF

Ideas in Food.jpg

I was browsing on the always stimulating "Ideas in Food" website today and saw that they are going to be doing a dinner and an all-day class on meat in San Francisco. The couple, Aki Kamozawa and H. Alexander Talbot, always have bright, creative, fun and challenging ideas about food and cooking, often with modernist techniques.

This dinner on Feb. 22 at Alexander's Steakhouse seems to showcase that. Check out the menu -- pretty edgy. And I like the pun in the first course. The all-day class on Feb. 23 is $250 per person. If you're interested, I understand there are still a few spots open. If you want to be revered and feared by friends and foodies alike, this class might be your thing. The book is very informative, endlessly thoughtful and entertaining.

Nine courses, $230; wine pairings optional

heart-beet tartare: cured beef heart, beets, puffed tendon

bone marrow tots: uni thousand island, mendocino uni

36hr veal tongue: pepperoni broth, italian kimchi, korean rice cakes

Miyazaki bms 9 ribeye in three services: "dry aged", smoked, salad

boneless beef short rib: crispy dungeness crab rice, spring garlic

beef carpaccio: shaved triple cream cheese, pickles

tallow doughnuts: cinnamon, lime, lemon curd

Alexander's Steakhouse is at 448 Brannan Street, San Francisco. Phone: (415) 495-1111.
