‘Top Chef: Just Desserts’ Chris Hanmer to Open Pastry Shop in Sioux Falls
SIOUX FALLS – A pastry chef who gained national fame as a winner of the Bravo network’s “Top Chef: Just Desserts” TV show plans to open a shop in South Dakota’s largest city.
Chris Hanmer won the second season of the TV competition. His wife, Caryn, is from Sioux Falls. Hanmer tells the Argus Leader that they wanted to bring big-city sweets to the relatively small downtown this spring.
The shop will be called CH Patisserie, named for the initials Hanmer and his wife share with their 20-month-old daughter, Carys. The business will be on South Phillips Avenue.
Hanmer confirmed the store plans in an email to The Associated Press. The shop will sell desserts such as French macaroons, bonbons and cookies. It will also offer pastry classes.
