Our favorite morsel from the blogs.

Gather 'round the good stuff!: Following her Slow Food takes on the Big Mac and the McNugget, Allison of Berkeley food blog Local Lemons takes on Pizza Hut ― the factory chain's stuffed-crust pepperoni pizza, to be precise. Allison's remakes of fast food are a bit like conceptual art pieces, an embarrassment of technique and ingredient quality lavished on simulacra of some of the least substantial food in the American canon, and little respected among foodies (not that they'd admit, anyway). For the pizza, Allison makes her own mozzarella, from Straus Creamery organic cream-top milk, and Happy Boy Farms tomatoes for the pizza sauce. Read the recipe here. The sheer depth of it is a sort of fascinating glimpse into the abyss that separates fast food and "serious" food.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
