About Us

A few words about us

Let us introduce ourselves

Pastries have been our passion for years, but they were relegated to being a hobby. Our founder, Stephan Beauchesne, a French-Canadian, has been making cream puffs, gougeres and eclairs semi-professionally since he took a baking course at L’Academie de Cuisine in Bethesda in 2002. Besides making pastries for various events, he also had a booth at the Kensington farmers markets in 2008-2009. Always looking to improve, he took advanced pastry courses in La Rochelle, France in June 2019. The focus was on the latest eclair and cream puffs techniques, as wells  developing new pastries.

Co-founder Greta Ober, also a Canadian, has experience in marketing and event planning. She focuses on brand and business development, as well as being the official taster.

Nathaniel Beauchesne is our purchasing and kitchen operation manager, when he’s not studying at University of Ottawa.

Kety makes all our pastries and sweets, including eclairs, cream puffs and macarons. She is also responsible for making our Montreal-style bagels.

Franklin is our food truck manager and oversees both of our food truck operations.

Food truck staff Cristina, Marlo, Chloe, Starr and Donovan are the ones operating the trucks at the more than 12-14 events we attend every week.

Luis is responsible for our storefront and assists in pastry making as needed.

Mira is our new baker, and is responsible for making our croissant and puff pastry products, as well as sweet and savory product development.

Steve Goldfine is our Director of sales, and is responsible for our food truck scheduling.

Lupe ensures the kitchen is always well-maintained and clean.

What we do

Small pastry bites to go

We focus on two main products: Pate a choux, the versatile dough used to make puffs and eclair, as well as macaron, the French cookie sandwich that’s taking the world by storm.

Sweet and savory bites: Macarons, cream puffs, eclairs, gougeres (aka cheese puffs), sausage rolls

We craft our pastries with high quality ingredients and using shelf stable fillings that do not require refrigeration.

We also operate an authentic Montreal poutine and smoked meat business. Check our Pop-up Poutine Website for more information.

Our Food Trailer

We now have new food trailer! We can sell Poutine alongside our pastries. Visit our new Web site just for the truck!
