  • The spherification kit helps you "create spheres of different sizes and shapes that explode in the mouth."

Modernist Cuisine At Home, Nathan Myhrvold's scaled-down version of his six-volume opus Modernist Cuisine, was supposed to be the molecular gastronomy manual for the home cook -- though according to an account from Grubstreet writer Matthew Latkiewicz, it wasn't exactly the easiest manual to follow.

Now brothers Albert and Ferran Adrià have gotten in the game, peddling a suite of "EasyKits" that allow you to recreate molecular masterpieces in your own kitchen. The four kits -- Cuisine, Patisserie, Cocktail, and Spherification -- contain molecular gastronomy ingredient standbys like xantham gum, agar, algin, and gluco, as well as recipe books and necessary tools like syringes and tweezers.

They're sold online for 70.15 euros ($92) and ship worldwide. Seems like a solid birthday present for the food-obsessive in your life -- and hey, if your friend just throws it in the back of his closet and forgets about it, at least it should provide some entertainment value 15 years from now, when we'll all wonder why we were so obsessed with things like "Campari air" and "spherified vinegar."

  • 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.'"
