Unapologetic Bad Ass Baked Goods: Black Jet Baking Company

Posted: Updated:

"We like the fact that we're not gimmicky, and we're not precious, and we're not anything more than giving you the best baked goods that you're going to be satisfied with..."

Meet Gillian Sara Shaw the owner and baking machine behind Black Jet Baking Company, a self-proclaimed "bad ass" baked goods company in San Francisco, California.

Gillian was destined to be a baker. She grew up on the East Coast, baking in the kitchen with her mom and sister, developing her own special recipes before she was even 10 years old. She loves it. She's good at it. And she's determined to take her baked goods national.

Gillian specializes in modern takes on nostalgic items, reinventing recipes using high-quality ingredients for things you loved growing up: devils dogs, pop tarts, pies and bundt cakes. She has a beautiful story to tell. I hope you like it!

To taste and order her bad-ass baked goods, visit her online store here. You can also find her products at a number of cafes and shops in San Francisco, including the Ferry Building. Her Pop Breakfast Sampler and hand-pies are particular favorites of mine.

The Next Big Small Brand Contest Tasting Event is March 27th at BAM in Brooklyn. This is the 1st of 6 finalist videos I'm making for the contest. Come out and support small food artisans!
