New, 1 comment

CASTING CALLS - The FOX TV people have announced the open casting call for the third season of MasterChef is coming up in San Francisco on December 10th. Remember you can't be a professional to try-out, but if you throw a mean dinner party, you're fair game. All you need to do is complete the 11 page application, bring in a picture of yourself, a photo of your plated dish and then a sample of your dish on a plate. Here is the link to find out more, and watch Gordon Ramsay's inspirational video. [EaterWire]

POP-UPS- Ok so today is officially pop-up day over at Eater HQ. On theme, ?Dontaye Ball's Good Foods Catering is going to take over Wing Wings in the Lower Haight tonight to serve soul food. You know, pork belly and beef meatloaf, catfish and such. This particular pop-up may resurface next year. [SFoodie]

FERRAN ADRIA WIRE - The Bay Citizen has more on the places Adria ate whilst in town. Apparently he sampled every single flavor at Humphry Slocombe, and said that "Barcelona, Sydney, and San Francisco are the only places he would want to live." [Bay Citizen]

ANNE BURRELL WIRE - Attention Anne Burrell fans! She of the tweaked blond locks will do a demo at the Williams-Sonoma in the Stanford Shopping Center on Oct. 14, and another on the following day at Santana Row. Whether you like it or not, the space at these things is bound to book up quickly. More info here. [Merc]

WEEK IN REVIEWS - In Sam Sifton's last review for the New York Times, he declares Thomas Keller's Per Se to be the Best Restaurant in New York. After comparing it to other New York dining giants — Le Bernardin, Eleven Madison Park, Daniel and Del Posto — he writes, "No restaurant in New York City does a better job than Per Se of making personal and revelatory the process of spending hundreds and hundreds of dollars on food and drink."
