  • Regular (left) and brown sugar (right) chocolate chip cookies from Della Fattoria.

Petaluma bakery Della Fattoria has the chocolate chip cookie for people who don't care about chocolate chip cookies. The secret to winning over nonbelievers is a round and wafer-thin shape and the judicious use of brown sugar in the batter.

The chocolate chips are about half as big as those in a typical cookie, but there are also more of them than you might normally see. The crispness puts the cookie close to florentine or even brittle territory, and one is not going to be enough. Fortunately, they're sold in bags of 10 for easy gluttony.

Find Della Fattoria's stand every Saturday at the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market.

  • 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.'"
