Even though the opening of pastry chef William Werner’s ~TELL TALE PRESERVE COMPANY~ on Maiden Lane won’t be happening until the spring, you’ll be able swing by Big Daddy Antiques in Potrero Hill for some of Werner’s sweet treats at his “Trunk Show.” Tell Tale will use the antiques and vintage furniture sold at the store to display their goods and provide seating and tables (pretty clever, I gotta say). The Trunk Show will offer drip coffee, pastries, preserves, and confections, and you’ll also be able to pick up the Tell Tale Society bags ($35), a mixed bag of their creations that would make one hell of a holiday gift. The December 2010 bag features: turrón of white chocolate, new crop walnut, and yuzu; vanilla- and Douglas fir-infused confiture au lait; roasted pumpkin, guanaja chocolate marshmallow; pain d’épices-laced caramels; quince, caramelized honey petit gâteau; and hazelnut, frankincense, and muscovado toffee.
Swing by for the open house this Thursday December 9th from 4pm-8pm for complimentary tastes and hot cider; regular hours will be Mon-Sat 9am-5pm through Christmas. 1550 17th St. at Wisconsin, 415-621-6800.
