Issue #23


Gabriele Riva surprises us from Tokyo with her sustainable and local pastry, with delicate manual finishes. Because manual is the new catalyst, this is demonstrated by other great contributors of this issue such as David Briand, Bobby Schaffer, Hans Ovando and Paco Torreblanca. A pastry that rediscovers the pleasure of sinking teeth into its freshly baked products, is the case of Francisco Migoya and Luciano Gatrcía, but also of Russ Thayer, of Ross Sneddon or Jean-Christophe Jeanson. A trip with 23 stops around the world which is excited by the awakening “pâtissier” in India, does not cease to reinvest in new dishes from the Netherlands and connects creativity and technical mastery in Las Vegas, Treviso, Kiev, and many more places.

Modern or classic, pastry is intimately linked to moments of happiness. That is why the desire to surprise but also to culminate the surprise with a pleasant taste experience, motivates the work of many other chefs in this issue.

So good was born as a platform that unites chefs from all over the world with a common passion, modern pastry. And today more than ever, 23 issues later, it is in the search for originality and the claim of a local product, when these connection points are better interwoven.

Wondering what it might be like to be 8 years old during this Pandemic...
Birthday parties were the highlight of our younger years for most of us. I can only imagine how it must feel to not be able to have that right now.😔
So here's to hoping that our custom cakes spark a little joy into that special day, for those who need it most right now. 🥳
We love you guys and we will most definitely get through this long journey ahead of us together. ❤

Approximately 400 families had their cakes postponed due to the covid-19 pandemic. We still wanted to be able to fulfill our mission to bring them smiles so we came up with a plan. In order to serve them safely, we asked a handful of commercial bakeries throughout the US to create custom care packages for our impacted families. These 6 bakers accepted this large scale call to action and it was a huge success! Please join us in giving these #SugarAngels a well-deserved thank you!

💜Thank you Sugar Angels!
