Number 65: Brioche Bread Pudding from Tartine Bakery What happened to the junkets and egg custards, the flummeries and semolina puddings of earlier generations? Vanished beneath vast landfills of synthetic factory pudding cups. And though it's no simple revival of those bucolic desserts, Tartine owner Elisabeth Prueitt's homely brioche pudding has all the concentrated milkiness, the squidgy texture, and delicately sweet-sulfur egginess of its old fashioned antecedents. With an enormous spoonful of fruit compote on top (pears are pictured above), it shades Northern Cali: fall-leaf colors and a distilled fruitiness that precisely set off the pudding's milky opalescence. Tartine Bakery 600 Guerrero (at 18th St.), 487-2600

  • 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.'"
