ORIGINAL POST NOVEMBER 25, 2020: We’ve partnered with displaced members of the hospitality industry and some of the best pastry Chef’s around town for the launch of our Holiday Pop-up Patisserie based out of our head office at 5708 176 Street in Cloverdale, BC. Starting November 25th, the office lobby will be draped in holiday decor and prepped to serve up a wide selection of fresh handmade holiday pastries created by pastry legend Chef Eric Fernandez. The talented team at Countdown Events has turned a vision into reality, transforming the space into a holiday wonderland. Stop by the front of the store for a holiday photo and drop your letter to Santa in the mailbox provided.
The opportunity presented itself when the team at JRG was first introduced to Chef Eric Fernandez at a Chef + Learn training session with their culinary team. Formerly the executive pastry chef at the Fairmont Hotel Vancouver, Chef Eric, was relieved of his duties earlier in the year as a result of mass layoffs during the Covid-19 pandemic. In 2019, Chef Eric was named leader of the year, known for his extraordinary talent and passion. Chef Eric is serving up his handmade pastries, treats, and gingerbread houses available for purchase. We have also partnered with other businesses as an investment in our community to offer the space for the sale of local products including Wexford Candle Co., Holiday Mugs by Pier Prints, Nova + Grey and Vancouver Laser Cut Co.
Covid-19 protocols are in place for shop operation including, regular sanitization at all touch-points, social distancing, limited capacity, and contactless payment only. Masks are strongly encouraged while waiting for admittance and are required once inside the lobby.
The Popup Patisserie will be open during the following hours through to the end of December.
- Wednesday – Friday: 11:00 am – 7:00 pm
- Saturday – Sunday: 10:00 am – 6:00 pm
