San Francisco gets a Top Chef Pastry Shop!

And it’s about time! There is a major shortage of great pastry shops and bakeries in San Francisco, so you can imagine how thrilled I was to learn of Yigit Pura's plans to stay on the west coast and share his talents on the open market.

Top Chef: Just Desserts winner, Yigit Pura, has decided to open his own upscale pastry shop in San Francisco. The former executive pastry chef at San Francisco's Taste Catering Co., won $110,000 competing on the Bravo TV’s popular Top Chef spin-off, and is now using his winnings to partner up with Taste and launch this new venture.

I have to admit that the over-focus on Top Chef: Just Desserts’ drama was REALLY off-putting, so I ended up skipping most of the episodes. But I was so elated to see Pura win. He was always prepared, never lost his cool, and (most impressively) he was the only pastry chef that lacked conventional training.
Yigit Pura has yet to announce the location or name of his pastry shop, but we’ll keep you in the loop so you can be waiting by the doors on opening day!
