Meet our Chefs
I have always been passionate about baking – quality ingredients, creative flavor pairings, new ideas and putting some of my heart into it.
Inspired by my late brother Nik, a rock musician, to turn my passion into a profession, I embarked on this new adventure – and I could not be happier. Four years later my business partner and me opened our first bakery in the USA.
With special thanks to my younger brother Andrey – for his love and support – and dedication to tasting my baking!
Inspired by Nik Baydin – and in loving memory of him.
As a child I was surrounded by excellent cooks, but the passion for pastry came many years later.
I majored in chemistry, then had a brief romance with quilting, but it still wasn’t anything I would love to pursue professionally.
For a while I was making cakes and sweets for birthdays in my family, until one day I got a call to make sweets for a wedding. The word quickly started spreading among the guests, and the orders started coming in.
Before I knew it, I had no time or desire to do anything else – I was too busy working to think about it, but one day I realized that it seemed like that’s how I finally found my calling.
