Craftsman and Wolves.


san francisco has a new food obsession. it has an unusual name, craftsman and wolves — when i first heard the words uttered i thought perhaps it was some kind of cool hardware store. silly me. craftsman and wolves is a contemporary patisserie in the mission district brought to us by artistan chef william werner — they make pastries, cakes, confections, confitures, and some mighty delicious savory fare, too. i’m over the moon for their rebel within (see above lower right — the amazing egg inside a muffin!). local bay area photographer eva kolenko shared this video she recently filmed and edited — following chef william around from scouting his fresh farmer’s market finds to the kitchen where all the magic happens. i think you’ll be inspired by her beautiful little film, and by william.

follow craftsman and wolves on instagram and twitter for tasty sneak peeks at their lastest concoctions.

    om yum yum. the pictures alone had me salivating…then i saw the video. Wish i were in SF to try some of those pastries and cakes.

  2. unbelievable amount of detail! One of his pastries and a Jacob’s Wonderbar coffee from Philz and that would be one of my definitions for “heaven”.

    I finally just had the “rebel within” for the first time last week. SO amazing. I sure wish that video showed how they get the gosh darn egg inside the gosh darn muffin. It is a mystery to me…
