Top NYC pastry chefs, bakeries & restaurants to support Almondine Bakery fundraiser this weekend in DUMBO

13 Dec 2012, Posted by Niko in Almondine, Bosie Tea Parlor, Dominique Ansel Bakery

Dominique Ansel Bakery is just one of the many bakeries to donate pastry for the sale this weekend

Brooklyn’s Dumbo neighborhood was one of those particularly hard-hit by the storm. Among the many businesses ravaged in the historic tempest was Pastry Chef Hervé Poussot’s Almondine Bakery, a local favorite destination for authentic French pastries. Among its many kudos, it has been voted Best NYC Bakery, Best NYC Baguette, and Best NYC Croissant. Due to the loss and damage, Almondine is struggling to stay afloat.

Will Bosie Tea Parlour send over some caneles to sell at Almondine this weekend? We hope so!

Proving once again that the hospitality community looks out for its own, a group of over fifteen (15) top NYC pastry chefs, restaurants and bakeries have banded together to help Almondine Bakery in DUMBO to rebuild their space after Sandy.

Bouchon Bakery Pain Aux Trois chocolate

Participants include: Dominique Ansel, Payard, La Maison du Chocolat, Bouchon Bakery, Ceci Cela, Financier, Bosie Tea Parlor, Valrhona chocolate, and others, that will donate baked goods, pastries and chocolate to be sold directly out of Almondine’s 85 Water Street location. All proceeds will benefit the re-boot the bakery to get it back to business. (Donating chefs may not be on hand.)

Payard's main baking operations also felt the pain of Sandy but they will be sending some goodies over for the Almondine benefit

Almondine Bakery is located at 85 Water Street Brooklyn NY 11201 .  The Pop-up will run from 10AM-6PM on Saturday Dec 15 & Sunday Dec 16th.  Follow DessertBuzz on Twitter for updates on this event and all NYC dessert news.

Valrhona chocolate will also be supporting Almondine--hopefully, they'll bring a huge pile of chocolate!
