  • Jacqueline Mallorca's faux-pork homage to food writer Joyce Goldstein.
Our favorite morsel from the blogs.

Consuming art: Second Lunch blogger (and Omnivore employee) Samantha Tackeff reported on the bookshop's April Fool's Edible Art Contest ― those vying for glory hauled in pastry simulacra of their favorite works of literature or art. Okay, so maybe it didn't yield the gobsmack fondant representation of Guernica we were imaging, or the Bengali sugar fretwork recalling henna tattoos a la The Namesake. But the entries weren't bad, ranging from the Food Network smackdown-ready Fabergé egg cake, to the eerily lifelike salami inspired by Joyce Goldstein's Salumi. The winner? We'll leave it to Tackeff to tell you (she posts the recipe, too). Here's a hint: Boo Radley would've totally crept out for a slice ― and staggered back into the bushes.

  • 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.'"
