Looks like Secret Breakfast won't be a secret forever. Mission ice cream maker Humphry Slocombe has a contract with Chronicle Books for Humphry Slocombe Ice Cream Book, written by Slocombe's Jake Godby and Sean Vahey with the assistance of Inside Scoop editor Paolo Lucchesi.

Part tell-all, part cookbook, it'll combine 40 recipes for making Humphry at home, plus what Vahey calls "stories of our start, death threats, and the full behind-the-scenes of the good, bad, and ugly about Humphry Slocombe." Vahey and Frankie Frankeny will provide photography.

A specific publication date has not been set, but Vahey tells SFoodie the book should be out at the end of the year.

  • 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.'"
