We only allow ourselves occasional and furtive peeks at the hefty new Thomas Keller bestseller Ad Hoc at Home because it is the very definition of food porn.

The book is being marketed as Keller's most accessible. This is corroborated by reading the family-style recipes inspired by his Yountville comfort food eatery -- a number of them seem do-able and not that much of a production (and that's coming from someone who isn't particularly fond of recipes in general).

Pick up a copy this Sunday, Dec. 6 at Omnivore Books (3885A Cesar Chavez at Church) and Keller himself will sign it for you, beginning at 3:30 p.m.

  • 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.'"
