Kauffman's Five: This Week in Bloggery

Posted By on Fri, Apr 30, 2010 at 5:18 PM

My favorite five bites from SFoodie and beyond:

Fritz Maytag.
  • Fritz Maytag.
1. I appreciated Brian Yaeger's thoughtful questioning ― motivated by a mixture of respect and betrayal ― of what might come of Fritz Maytag's sale of Anchor Brewing to the producers of Skyy Vodka.

2. Considering that the last Underground Farmers Market drew more than a thousand people, the new bike-in event it's organizing in tandem with the Disposable Film Festival sounds like it could create the kind of parking morass you only see in Amsterdam. The event, of course, is already on my calendar.

3. The sisig from William Pilz' new Hapa

SF Filipino street-food truck, made with real cheek and ear meat, sounds spectacular. If you can't wait for the truck to make its S.F. debut, Brisbane is not

so far a drive.

4. If you hadn't heard about the sugar-cookie war currently being waged

between Food52 (recipe crowdsourcing Web site) and Cook's Illustrated

(OCD professional testers), the great Jane

Black of the Washington Post maps out the battlefield. If you were

looking for a weekend activity that might yield six dozen cookies, grab a

spatula and wade in to the melee.

5. Bite o' the week: A tie

between the salted chocolate brownie ― a chocolate chocolate-chip

cookie, really ― from Boulette's

Larder and a toasted onion bagel from Roland's/Terra, which I

spread with butter and a creamy Italian sheep's milk "feta" that Rainbow

had on display.

  • 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.'"
