Patience a key ingredient for summer pie

I have a confession: I’m a mediocre pie maker. Despite being a pastry chef and having the honor of making Julia Child’s 90th-birthday cake, my pies are only so-so.
But pie is my favorite dessert, so I went searching for the best pie in the San Francisco area with the intention of getting the recipe and stepping up my game.
I’ve eaten a lot of pie in the past two months (tough job, right?) and have found only one baker who makes pies that satisfy my three criteria: ripe summer fruit, flaky bottom crust and chunky streusel topping.
This last requirement is because I like having a crunchy, cookielike crumble topping – so it’s like having two desserts in one.
