A while back, I wrote a piece on pop-ups and their increasing prevalence and importance in the food world. While existing ones focus on savory items, pastry pop-ups, like Le-Dix Sept, are a recent and welcome addition to the industry.
Le Dix-Sept is a husband-and-wife team who lived and studied in France before coming to San Francisco. Their pastries are decidedly French with an emphasis on local ingredients. To learn (and eat!) more of their story, I gathered the troops and organized a pastry tasting at Firehouse 8, a renovated fire station that now serves as a pop-up gathering and market; we don’t tear buildings here, we re-use them.
Every item we tasted was small and mighty, highlighting the high-quality products. I’m a firm believer that good ingredients make a huge difference, and Le Dix-Sept certainly proves that. Their menu changes seasonally, so there is always something to look forward to!
Check out the photos below for some delicious eats. Le-Dix Sept is at the Noe Valley farmer’s market every weekend as well as at Firehouse 8 once a month. I’ll be planning another tasting with them in December, so if you like what you see and would like to participate, let me know!
