With a cookbook called Deceptively Delicious, Jessica Seinfeld (wife of Jerry) helped to popularize a certain form of cooking where vegetables and other healthy ingredients are slipped into recipes for desserts and other kid-pleasing fare. Tartine Bakery has its own sort of answer to this culinary style by serving chocolate salted rye cookies.

We have to fess up and admit that we probably wouldn't have known there was anything but chocolate in this soft, crackly three-bite cookie if we weren't told in advance. It tastes like an indulgence, not something that's going to help us with our fiber content.

If you do know the rye is there you can probably pick out the flavor faintly chilling in the background, but it's certainly not a jarring taste. Mission accomplished.

  • 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.'"
