Nicolette Foster leaving Baked in Kansas City for Parisi Artisan Coffee

Nicolette Foster has given her notice at Baked in Kansas City, the nine-month-old bakery and restaurant at 706 Westport Road (reviewed here). The talented young pastry chef starts a new job — executive pastry chef for Parisi Artisan Coffee — on September 15.

“I learned a lot at Baked in Kansas City,” Foster says. “It was an amazing opportunity to be part of a new venture from the ground up. But after 14 months, I was ready to move on to the next level of my career. I have great respect for the Paris brothers and what they have done with the Parisi Cafés.”

Foster takes over Parisi’s bakery operation, which produces a line of freshly baked croissants, scones, cinnamon rolls and bagels for the two Parisi Cafés in the metro, inside Union Station and in Leawood.

“It’s an awesome company,” Foster says. “I can’t wait to start.”
