Bryce Caron Out at Blackbird

Award-winning pastry chef Bryce Caron via

Here's the bombshell of the week:

An Ultimate Insider tells 312DD that pastry chef Bryce Caron is no longer at Blackbird. This comes as a surprise because Caron was recently named Best Pastry Chef in the Midwest by Food & Wine editors.

UPDATE: Whoa. Eater got an interview with Caron, who said he was told by Blackbird's owners he "just wasn't a fit." Ouch.

Sounds like politics in the kitchen. Very unfortunate. I'm sure he will move on to greener pastures.
