Black Jet Baking Co.'s Pop-Up Pie Shop

Posted By on Mon, Nov 15, 2010 at 5:06 PM

Today, 7x7's Jessica Battilana posted a useful directory of foodie-approved Thanksgiving pies, including Mission Beach's huckleberry, Mission Pie's walnut, and Tartine's cranberry frangipane (and for those who fear the crust, a couple sources for bake-your-own dough). This weekend, SFoodie snapped a pic of another pie maker's poster.

Black Jet Baking Co.'s Gillian Shaw learned her crust craft baking pies at Liberty Cafe. Now she sells cookies and pop tarts ― handheld pies with feathery butter crusts ― at Ritual, Matching Half, Farm:Table, and a few other local cafes. For Thanksgiving, she's selling five varieties of pies (all $20), flavors listed above, as well as smaller pies in a jar ($5) and her pop tarts in Thanksgiving flavors ($3). Shaw uses a half-butter, half-shortening crust (SFoodie approves), and she happily makes her pecan pie with corn syrup.

Shaw's a regular instructor at the Workshop,

and so on the day before the holiday, she'll be taking over the DIY

shop in NOPA and turning it into a pop-up shop where customers can pick

up the pies they've pre-ordered (you're going to pre-order, right?) or

possibly score a dessert on the spot. All orders should be in

by next Monday, Nov. 22. For the extra-straggly stragglers, Black Jet Baking will be selling dinner rolls and pies in a jar at

Ritual Coffee on Thanksgiving Day ― contact Shaw for prices and pickup

  • 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.'"
