Belinda Leong honed her skills as a pastry chef over eight years at Restaurant Gary Danko in San Francisco. She moved to Europe, where she staged at Pierre Hermé in Paris, Bubo in Barcelona, In de Wulf in Belgium, and the two Michelin-starred Noma in Copenhagen. Returning to the Bay Area, she became the pastry chef at Manresa in Los Gatos.
While at Manresa, Belinda decided to introduce her pastries to the public through pop-ups and partnerships with select coffee shops. San Francisco Magazine named her 2012’s Best Pastry Chef of the Year. The success of her pop-ups encouraged Belinda to focus solely on b. Patisserie, which opened to critical acclaim in 2013. She was a James Beard Foundation Award finalist for Best Pastry Chef in 2014 and for Outstanding Baker in 2015.
