Kauffman's Five: This Week in Blogativity

Posted By on Fri, Mar 12, 2010 at 5:10 PM

A few of my favorite morsels from the blog and beyond this week:

1. Between @jasperslobrushe and @ruthbourdain, I have lost several irredeemable minutes this week to reading parody Twitter feeds.

2. The Brazilian-owned pizza parlor is a San Francisco trope that doesn't usually result in good pizza or good Brazilian food. We should all hope that Brazilian pizzaiolos are paying attention to Mary Ladd's discovery of morning salgados, or deep-fried pastries, at the Twin Peaks Pizza & Pasta.

3. Bite o' the Week: When I bit into the Prather Ranch burger at Serpentine this week, juices arced across the plate. It was obscene ― and obscenely delicious.

4. Some people fantasize about a Kardashian triple-decker. Others, a

spot on the board at 3M. Ever since talking

to Maverick chef Scott Youkilis about his upcoming ham (and oyster)

bar, Hog & Rocks, I've been daydreaming about a tasting platter of

Kentucky country ham, jamon serrano, and prosciutto.

​5. Tracking the influx of

little NOLA-style restaurants, John Birdsall stumbled upon a corn

maque choux at Tasty's Creole and Cajun good enough to eat all by

itself. Apparently, the chef trained under a "roux master," a title I

never knew existed.

Finally, a note to the food blogosphere: It's

time to stop ewwing about the guy who made breast-milk cheese, which

I'm not even going to link to. If you ignore him, he will go

away.

  • 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.'"
