Pâté typically turns an herbivore's tummy, but San Francisco's Kiki's Raw has turned the concept of the product on its ear with vegan and gluten-free takes on what's traditionally a meat product.

It's not exactly faux gras, but with just seven ingredients including sprouted sunflower seeds, tahini, and spices, the Tuscan Sunflower Pâté mimics that creamy texture in a cruelty-free way. It can potentially give hummus quite the run for the money as a pita bread's new best friend.

The brainchild of a former yoga and wellness professional, the company launched in February with vegan pâté (there's also an almond and sundried tomato variety), "cheez" sauces, and flax wraps. The next phase of product development for Kiki's Raw is to take on crackers and energy bars.

  • 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.'"
