In case you missed it this morning, Grub Street just did a national slideshow of new desserts (see the San Francisco section here). And we aren’t the only ones noticing that desserts are having a moment: Food & Wine is doing their first ever Best New Pastry Chefs special issue this year; Bravo continues to find viewers for Top Chef: Just Desserts; and Tasting Table just did this, albeit more brief roundup of new pastry stars. Now, since our fellow editors forced us to limit our picks for S.F. to a mere ten, here are fourteen more very worthy candidates that should have made the cut, were the rest of the country more accepting of how awesome we are.
