Craftsman and Wolves' Sell-Out Muffin: What's The Deal With The Rebel Within?

It took me three trips to Craftsman and Wolves before I could get my hands on The Rebel Within. This buzzed-about Asiago cheese and green onion muffin with pieces of Easton sausage and a sous vide egg hiding in the middle has been selling out by mid morning. I kept making my way to this sleek and chic hipster hot spot just a minute too late.

But good news for me and anyone else tracking down this $7 muffin of all muffins is that pastry chef and owner William Werner has increased production so that you can get one any time of day.

I've stuck to the savory options at Craftsman and have fallen in love with the gougère. Absolutely airy and even lighter next to the weighed-down muffin, it offers subtle hints of chile and cheese in this gooey, eggy pastry. I wasn't as wowed, however, by the financier with zucchini, olive oil and pistachios. I was downright disappointed by the too crunchy, too bready chocolate chip cookie. My expectations for this chocolate chip cookie were high, however, as I, never one to purchase something that I think I can do better with a tried and true Toll House recipe at home, had my mind blown by the chocolate chip cookie at Outerlands. Absolutely unreal. But anyhow, I digress.

  • 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.'"
