Here are Bill Corbett's fantastic pretzel croissants

San Francisco, CA: We’re checking in from the Killed By Dessert bake sale to benefit Share Our Strength at the San Francisco Cooking School. (Tomorrow is the sold-out dinner event.)  The event was a grand slam with a line down the block for the first 2 hours. The down side was that they were sold out of Shawn Gawle‘s canele by the time I got there. Read on for a full gallery of desserts and portraits of the pastry chefs who created them.
