On a Mission

Inexpensive street food as reimagined by guest chefs draws crowds and donations.

The warm apple pie's crust was flavored with pepper and star anise ($6), but even better was butter-fried cornbread served with a barely-jelled buttermilk panna cotta, minted honey, and fried sage leaves ($6). The Slocombe ice creams ($3.25) were themed: Baracky Road, with homemade chocolate-dipped marshmallows, and I Have a Dreamsicle.

Leibowitz and Myint have a dream, too, and foodie San Franciscans can join them on Thursdays (and maybe a second night soon). The idea that good food can also do some good seems not only delicious, but also timely.
