Flicks & Dips 

Wednesday, Feb 26 2014

The films featured at Hummus, Falafel, and Brisket — Oh My! have some bumper sticker-worthy titles. There is Make Hummus Not War, Falafel! Give Peas a Chance, and, lacking such a catchy name but still worth watching, Meathooked! The afternoon triple feature is presented by the San Francisco Jewish Film Festival, and the films are, unsurprisingly, all about food. Hummus follows filmmaker Trevor Graham through the hummus bars of Tel Aviv, Beirut, Jerusalem, and New York. Falafel! shows how the classic chickpea and fava bean concoction can be "a gateway to understanding age-old conflicts and finding peaceful coexistence." The prize for most interesting goes to Meathooked! It follows the rise, fall, and eventual rise again of the personal butcher. There will also be food for sale between screenings, so don't be afraid to show up hungry.

  • San Francisco Street Food Festival 2014
    The San Francisco Street Food Festival was another success this year. Dozens of vendors with original, unheard-of creations, such as deep fried mac and cheese on a stick, black pea paste pancakes, and Korean quesadillas. Then there was the comfort foods we've grown accustomed to, like creme bruleé, shrimp rolls, and pound cake. Photographs by Mabel Jimenez.
