Sous vide, the method of cooking vacuum-sealed food in a temperature-controlled water bath, has long been the domain of top chefs and molecular gastronomists, but a trio of local tech-foodies is bringing the exclusive and believed-to-be expensive way of cooking to the everyday kitchen.

But over the course of the past six months, Hamilton has transformed the shop from one dealing exclusively in large-scale antiques into a store that more closely resembles her original idea for the space. The new March houses a comprehensive tabletop division with curated and collaborative collections including pots from Brooklyn Copper, ceramics from Brickett Davda, table linens from Boxwood Linen,s and cast iron cookware from Lodge.

    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.'"
