There's Gluten-Free Glory in Ma-adi's Munga

The business of San Francisco's Ma-adi Foods is built off of one main product called munga (moon-gah) flour, which it sells in one-pound bags on its Web site. The high-protein, fiber-rich, and gluten-free blend of brown rice and nuts (they use peanuts or almonds) is a recipe adapted from the Saramacan tribe of Suriname, who live in the South American rainforest.

We tried Ma-adi's peanut munga cookies ($1.19 at Other Avenues, 3930 Judah at 45th Ave.) and loved the ginger snap-esque texture and subtle flavors of peanut and cinnamon. Ma-adi has the basic recipe on their site; they were so good out of the bag that they must be fairly phenomenal straight out of your oven.

  • 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.'"
