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."

Triple Creme Basque Cheesecake
6". Satisfies 4 - 6 sweet cravings

Inspired by our travels to Spain, we've taken the classic Basque Cheesecake to a whole new level by blending three premium cheeses: Triple Cream Brie, Fresh Mascarpone, and Cream Cheese. The cake is the perfect combination of rich, cheesy goodness with fudgy creaminess. Perfect for an indulgent, slightly guilty weeknight treat. The top is beautifully caramelized (not burnt). The inside is barely set and melts in your mouth. It's delicious on its own or paired with tart Yuzu jam. If you really want to set the mood, you can sip a glass of white wine and snack on some charcuterie alongside it. 🧀🍷
