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 this past June. 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.

Chef Michael Porru Joined us in August to increase our production processes, and help us with some R&D by developing new products. He comes with an extensive background as a pastry chef.

Chef Doogie Whittaker joined in June tends to some of our farmers markets booths.

Kitchen Assistant Aurora Estrella is the newest member of our expanding team. She also helps out at farmers markets on the weekends.

Nathaniel Beauchesne is our kitchen helper when he’s not studying at University of Ottawa.

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: Cream puffs, eclairs, gougeres (aka cheese puffs), and macarons

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

Our Food Trailer

We now have new food trailer! We can sell Poutine alongside our pastries. Watch this space for further details and a new Web site just for the truck!
