Barley Swine Adds A Pastry Chef, Kyle McKinney

Barley Swine has added pastry chef Kyle McKinney to their team and, as would follow, is expanding their pastry menu (they previously had no pastry chef and a choice of two desserts). McKinney has previously worked at the Hilton, the Mansion at Judges Hill and the Four Seasons.

He also apparently used to work as a sushi chef at Maiko Sushi Lounge and Mizu: Prime Steak & Sushi, and thus is into exploring sushi/pastry combos. Interesting? No word on whether we'll see any of those at Barley Swine; McKinney's contributions to the menu thus far include a Olive-oil Financier with thyme infused apples, brown butter ice cream, almond nougatine and his take on a Crunch Bar, which is served with a caramel cremeux and honey-almond nougat.
