SFMOMA brings exhibitions to Stanford and the streets of Los Altos By Rebecca Wallace

Putting the shows

ago, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art has closed for renovations and is taking its art on the road. While hammers bang away on the museum’s expansion project through early 2016, SFMOMA is sending traveling exhibitions, outdoor art and new commissioned works around the Bay Area. This month, two of those endeavors come to the Midpeninsula. Starting Thursday, Nov. 13, Stanford’s Cantor Arts Center is hosting “Flesh and Metal: Body and Machine in Early 20th-Century Art,” an exhibition of about 70 works from SFMOMA’s collection. The paintings, photos, sculptures, drawings, prints and illustrated books are examples of how artists in

on the road Europe and the Americas

looked at issues of mechanization and humanity between the 1910s and the early ‘50s. Art also hits the streets in downtown Los Altos, where “Project Los Altos: SFMOMA in Silicon Valley” brings works by nine contemporary artists to 10 indoor and outdoor spots beginning this Saturday. Much of the art was created as site-specific responses to the character of the downtown; other pieces were already in existence. The unusual endeavor explores Los Altos’ evolution over the decades from an orchardfilled village to a boutique-filled downtown that is very much immersed in tech culture. Video is a major element of the project, including the “Winchester” video trilogy by the late artist Jeremy Blake, which examines the odd history of the Winchester Mystery House with the aid of vintage ads and photos. The piece is on view at 242 State St. Los Angeles artist Mike Mills also uses video in his threepart work “A Mind ForContinued on next page

NEW SCOOP MICROCREAMERY MAKES SMALL-BATCH ICE CREAM WITH LIQUID NITROGEN

N F O O D F E AT U R E

Y

et another ice cream shop in Palo Alto? It’s a crowded field, but it would be wrong to dismiss Scoop Microcreamery, a small-batch, momand-pop ice cream shop that opened on University Avenue in late September. Scoop is owned by Dave and Cindy Somasunderam, New Jersey transplants who clearly love making ice cream. Cindy, who has been making ice cream at home for years, makes two flavors of her own vanilla extract (classic and bourbon vanilla). The pair use homegrown herbs to make their sorbets. And she refers to herself and her husband as “Mr. and Mrs. Scoop.” But Scoop is not conventional. With two giant tanks of liquid nitrogen on hand, the folks at Scoop make all their ice cream throughout the day, freezing it on-site in small batches at minus-321 degrees Fahrenheit. This method of making ice cream is gaining popularity in the Bay Area because it creates a product that is said to be denser, creamier and more flavorful than traditionally churned ice cream. The couple got the idea from an episode of “Shark Tank,” an ABC television show that searches for unique businesses. One episode featured Sub Zero Ice Cream and Yogurt, a Utah-based franchise that uses nitrogen to make made-to-order frozen treats. “My husband said, ‘We gotta do something like this,’” Cindy said. “But we didn’t want to do one serving at a time, because we don’t want people to have to wait for it. We also want people to be able to taste it. We wanted to do it not just for the novelty of having it made to order, but to make really good ice cream.” Their daughter, a scientist, got them some liquid nitrogen to play around with. “Cindy whipped up some of her ice cream recipes and we froze it with the nitrogen,” Dave said. “It was amazing, and at that point we knew we wanted to combine the best ingredients with the best ice cream technology.” The two shuttered their frozen-yogurt shop in New Jersey and moved to the Bay Area a few years ago, making the final move to Palo Alto this summer. They’ve taken over a space in downtown Palo Alto that used to house Haagen Dazs, adding personal touches along with two giant metal tanks of nitrogen behind the counter. Cindy said that they blend all their ingredients — starting with Strauss Family Creamery organic cream, eggs and sugar — in advance, so the ingredients are Continued on next page

ready to be frozen. Ingredients are poured into a bowl that resembles a KitchenAid mixer that’s hooked up via a hose to the nitrogen tanks. As the nitrogen does its job, what looks like dry-ice vapor envelops the area surrounding the bowl. It takes approximately five minutes to

make a batch of ice cream. “It’s nice because it’s freezing it so fast, it doesn’t have time for the ice crystals to form,” she said. “Conventional methods of churning are a little slower. With nitrogen, there’s no air pumped into it so it’s creamy and dense. It really is a beautiful, velvety texture.” Dave said they make numer-

ous “tiny” batches of each flavor throughout the day. Nothing is carried over from one day to the next in order to preserve freshness — one of Scoop’s main commitments. “We try to do everything the best quality possible,” Cindy said. “We’re not a big space but we’re trying to do as much from scratch as we can.”

wasn’t in the mood for mango.” So she left with a single scoop of Biscoff cookies n’ cream (made with Biscoff cookies and Biscoff spread). “It’s very light and not sweet at all,” she said. “It’s very subtle in flavor but not as creamy as regular ice cream.” Real didn’t opt for any toppings, but Scoop offers quite a few: Cindy’s homemade brown sugar caramel sauce; hot fudge; a drizzle of honey, maple syrup or olive oil; whipped cream; Nutella or a chocolate shell. There are also almonds, carob coconut clusters, toasted coconut, peanuts, roasted cashews, “cornflakes n’ milk crunch” (from Mrs. Scoop’s secret recipe) and chocolate toffee almonds.

NMOVIEREVIEWS

12 YEARS A SLAVE ---1/2

It can be hard to see the tree for the forest when it comes to films about culturally loaded topics, none more so than American slavery. It’s useful to keep in mind that “12 Years a Slave” is the story of a man: another tale of physical and emotional survival that, unlike “All is Lost” and “Gravity,” derives from a true story. The man is Solomon Northup, who endured the titular torture before penning his autobiography of the same name (as told to white lawyer David Wilson). Director Steve McQueen’s cinematic adaptation, scripted by John Ridley, begins in 1841, where free New York resident Northup (Chiwetel Ejiofor), a husband and father, entertains an offer to play the violin on tour with a circus. The offer turns out to be a ruse, and Northup is kidnapped, transported by a domestic slave ship to New Orleans, and sold into slavery. As such, and above all, “12 Years a Slave” explores one man’s terrifying realization of the fragility of his existence and, accordingly, his sense of self. Rated R for violence/cruelty, some nudity and brief sexuality. Two hours, 13 minutes. — P.C.

ABOUT TIME --

The congenial voiceover at the beginning of writer-director Richard Curtis’ comedy promises an entertaining glimpse at a “fairly odd family, too skinny, too orange.” But their thin frames and gingercolored hair aren’t particularly memorable, nor is the narrator’s fairly ordinary life that unfurls in a leisurely manner. As in Curtis’ “Four Weddings and a Funeral” and “Notting Hill,” the characters are familiar British types with Bill Nighy (“The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel”) playing the laid-back family patriarch and Domnhall Gleeson (“Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows”) assuming the role of his affable son. Only this time, the males of the family can time-travel upon reaching the age of 21. Rated R for language and some sexual content. Two hours, four minutes. — S.T.

LAST VEGAS ---

At first glance, “Last Vegas” seems a bit like “The Hangover” for the 60-andover crowd (minus the raunch). But the class-act cast and a solid script from screenwriter Dan Fogelman (“Crazy, Stupid, Love.”) keep the film fresh, funny and thoroughly entertaining. The story follows four childhood friends as they reunite in Las Vegas for the wedding of one of their own. Billy (Michael Douglas) is a wealthy charmer set to marry a woman more than 30 years his junior. Sam (Kevin Kline, in top form) is a Florida retiree struggling to rediscover the passion in his 40-year marriage. Air Force vet Archie (Morgan Freeman) has grown weary of his son’s cautious care. And tough guy Paddy (Robert De Niro) has rarely left the apartment — or the comfort of his bathrobe — since the death of his wife. A Vegas bachelor party is exactly what this quartet needs. Rated PG-13 for sexual content and language. One hour, 30 minutes. — T.H.

If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property.
