Dessert, Very Local Events

Postponed // Mar 28: Dessert for Dinner // 6 courses of desserts from Casey Renee

Pittsburgh pastry chef Casey Renee is preparing a 6 course menu of desserts for our next event.

Hey folks, we are postponing this event. We are currently in discussion to figure out details of what that will look like, where it will be, and when. If you’ve purchased a ticket and want a refund, please just contact us or request one on Eventbrite. If you want to wait a bit to hold your spot for the rescheduled event, that’s cool too! 

We’re taking the motto “eat dessert first” to a new level: this six-course pop-up dinner features notable Pittsburgh pastry chef Casey Renee’s sweet spin on a traditional multicourse meal. Sure, there might be a little bit of savory, or something to cleanse your palate, but this is your chance to eat dessert for dinner. We promise you are in for a treat.

Who is Casey Renee?

In 2019, the two-time James Beard semifinalist, Food Network contestant, and former pastry chef at the Ace Hotel opened her own business: Confections by Casey Renee. Now, her delicious cakes and cookies are available at Brick Shop at the TRYP Hotel in Lawrenceville, at 4121 Main in Bloomfield; and by special order. A storefront in Wilkinsburg is also coming soon. You can read more about her here.

This prix fixe dinner features six courses:

  • Appetizer: Popcorn, Cranberry Goat Cheese, Chocolate Potato Chips
  • Salad: Ambrosia, Sunflower Seed Brittle
  • Cheese: Ruby Chocolate, Passionfruit Cheesecake, Graham Cracker
  • Entree: Miso Sticky Buns, Buttermilk, Black Pepper
  • Intermezzo: Meyer Lemon
  • Coffee, Tea, Donuts: Matcha, Chai, Chocolate Espresso Petit Fours

We are currently recipe testing; menu subject to slight changes.

Please note: Due to the specific menu developed for this event, modifications are not available at this time. The menu is nut-free, but not prepared in a dedicated nut-free kitchen space.

Spots are limited. We will be seated family-style and have rented out the Black Radish Kitchen Event space in Point Breeze for this event.
