Technique-driven popup bakery focused on global flavors
For most people, pastry-making and software engineering are polar opposites. Yet, for former engineer turned baker Richard Lee, there’s a commonality. “There’s a lot of optimization in baking — scientific theory,” Richard said. “I apply a lot of science to the way I test recipes.”
This distinct baking philosophy has allowed the Toronto transplant to create a unique pastry style at his pop-up, Kaya Bakery. Equal parts rigorous recipe testing to free-wheeling culinary experimentation, Richard has seamlessly structured science with an entrepreneurial yet artistic mindset, resulting in beautifully rustic handcrafted creations like the Raspberry Lychee Rose Croissant, a melding of French and Chinese flavors. Entirely self-taught, Richard runs Kaya Bakery with his fiancé, Stephanie, and together the two hope not only to create delicious pastries but also a community. “We love when people love our food,” Richard said. “And we really want to build a community around this fusing of cultures."

To help reduce plastic waste, Neon partners with Dispatch Goods (DG) and participating restaurants to offer reusable containers.
One week after your order, DG will contact you to pick up empty containers. We'll provide DG with your name, email, and phone number so they can schedule the pickup.
100% of this fee is sent back to partners to help them operate. Neon joins force because we care and does not profit from this effort.
