Kauffman's Five: This Week in Bloggery

My favorite five bites from SFoodie and beyond:

Fritz Maytag.
1. I appreciated Brian Yaeger's thoughtful questioning ― motivated by a mixture of respect and betrayal ― of what might come of Fritz Maytag's sale of Anchor Brewing to the producers of Skyy Vodka.

2. Considering that the last Underground Farmers Market drew more than a thousand people, the new bike-in event it's organizing in tandem with the Disposable Film Festival sounds like it could create the kind of parking morass you only see in Amsterdam. The event, of course, is already on my calendar.

3. The sisig from William Pilz' new Hapa SF Filipino street-food truck, made with real cheek and ear meat, sounds spectacular. If you can't wait for the truck to make its S.F. debut, Brisbane is not so far a drive.

4. If you hadn't heard about the sugar-cookie war currently being waged between Food52 (recipe crowdsourcing Web site) and Cook's Illustrated (OCD professional testers), the great Jane Black of the Washington Post maps out the battlefield. If you were looking for a weekend activity that might yield six dozen cookies, grab a spatula and wade in to the melee.

5. Bite o' the week: A tie between the salted chocolate brownie ― a chocolate chocolate-chip cookie, really ― from Boulette's Larder and a toasted onion bagel from Roland's/Terra, which I spread with butter and a creamy Italian sheep's milk "feta" that Rainbow had on display.
