Chef Carlos Gaytan has some developments to share from his pastry team at Tzuco. 

Tzuco will now sell a selection of artisan baked goods and pastries to-go, via the Panango website. Panango, Gaytan’s bakery outpost that formerly occupied the dining room space at Tzuco, is being relocated and will re-open its storefront in 2021. In the meantime, Tzuco’s recently expanded pastry team (trained under pastry chef Jesus Escalera) is presenting a variety of sweet and salty pastries that can be pre-ordered for carryout at Tzuco.

New to-go pastry offerings feature a variety of Pan Dulce (traditional Mexican sweet bread preparations) and Empanadas courtesy of Tzuco’s head baker Karen Trejo.
