A match made in pastry heaven

A pop-up bakery that was devised during the height of the pandemic has transformed into a successful partnership. Last summer, award-winning restaurant Bellecour closed in Wayzata. Owner and Chef Gavin Kaysen still had Spoon and Stable in the North Loop neighborhood of Minneapolis. Cooks of Crocus Hill, a kitchen store that offers cooking classes, is across the street. It wasn’t long before the owners of Cooks and Kaysen discussed opening a pop-up bakery in their store. Within a few months it became a permanent location, and a year later, they’ve opened a second location inside the St. Paul Cooks of Crocus Hill location. The shop and its bakeries, featuring French pastries from James Beard-nominated pastry chef Diane Moua, are open seven days a week.
