Top Chef Desserts winner Yigit Pura is quickly approaching the due date of his Union Square patisserie, Tout Sweet.
Pura — along with his partners at Taste Catering, MeMe Pederson and Janet Griggs — is currently planning to open his sweet shop in late August. It’ll be open throughout the day, offering pastries, parfaits and breakfast sandwiches in the morning, and lunch fare later in the day (there’s talk of a Grilled B3 sandwich: Bread, Butter and Burrata).
But the main attraction will be the sweets, which will be packaged alongside other retail offerings. There will also be French macarons, petit gâteaux, verrines and cakes, among many others.
As if all that wasn’t enough, Pura is also writing a cookbook, “Sweet Alchemy,” due in September 2013.
