Taste Interview: Build Your Own Earth Oven

Posted By on Sat, Aug 30, 2008 at 11:39 AM

At last night's preview of Slow Food Nation's Taste event, a scent of smoke wafted through the outdoor (and hallowed) Hall of Bread. The pair responsible: Oregon's Kiko Denzer and Hannah Field, authors of Build Your Own Earth Oven. The book details how one can create a working oven out of mud in under a day and enjoy a cooking ritual that's over 4000 years old. Field and Denzer, who are building a full-size oven during today's sold-out Taste sessions, took a moment to give us a quick look.

  • 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.'"
