Killed by Dessert was founded by six renowned Pastry Chefs - Lincoln Carson, Bill Corbett, Brooks Headley, Michael Laiskonis, Francisco Migoya and Christina Tosi.
"We seek to create an intimate atmosphere, to encourage
interaction, and to remove the typical barriers between those who cook and those who eat. Most of all, we simply like the idea of getting together, doing the thing that we like doing most. All proceeds generated from Killed by Dessert go to Share Our Strength's No Kid Hungry Campaign."
After events in NYC and Austin, Killed by Dessert made it's way to San Francisco in May. It kicked off with a bake sale that was open to the public. Held at the new San Francisco Cooking School on Van Ness, foodies and industry-folk alike were anxiously lined-up before the doors opened to get their sugar fix.
I stopped by on the way to work with one of my co-workers. The event was well organized and offered countless goodies from not only the founding Pastry Chefs, but also some well-known local ones. The photo above is the loot we walked away with - don't worry, we shared!
