Daniel Skurnick, a pastry chef who used to work at Le Coucou, is now running a small bakery based out of an apartment in Crown Heights. He specializes in classical French baked goods that look like the kinds of things you’d point at from behind a glass counter in Paris. Think tarte tropézienne, a brioche pastry filled with crème légère and topped with almond crumbles, raspberry mille feuille, and more. You can place a pre-order by sending a DM to the bakery’s Instagram, and expect to pay with either Venmo or Paypal when you pick it up this weekend.
