Pastry Chef

A Massachusetts native, Ryan Pike developed a passion for the culinary arts at a very young age. Many memories from his childhood involve baking cakes, cookies and confections with his family and watching influential chefs on television, including the renowned Julia Child and legendary Jacques Pepin. By the time he was 14, Ryan took his culinary skills to a professional kitchen, working as a line cook at a local restaurant. His high school offered a culinary arts program, ultimately convincing him to pursue pastry as a career.

Ryan attended culinary school at Newbury College and worked part-time at White’s Bakery in Brockton, Massachusetts. After graduating with a Culinary Management degree in 2003, he earned himself a full-time position at the bakery, where he honed his pastry skills for another two years. In 2005, Ryan was hired as Assistant Pastry Chef at Boston’s acclaimed restaurant, Top of the Hub. Working directly under Pastry Chef Tommy Choi, he gained an understanding of fine dining, pastry production and service. He trained and supervised the culinary team and baked VIP cakes and created showpieces for private events.

Ryan was eager to take the next step in his career and took interest in the hotel industry, joining the Langham Hotel’s pastry team in 2008 as an assistant pastry cook. He contributed his creativity and innovative ideas to the sophisticated dessert menus while learning the intricacies of refined pastry, leading him to Assistant Pastry Chef and eventually Executive Pastry Chef of the luxury hotel in 2013. Ryan oversaw the entire program orchestrating all banquet, à la carte and in-room dining pastry needs, contributed to the hotel’s award-winning brunch and Chocolate Bar and learned how to successfully run his own pastry team.

A long-time admirer of Chef Daniel Boulud, Ryan joined Bar Boulud Boston and Mandarin Oriental, Boston, as Executive Pastry Chef in July 2019. He looks forward to growing with his pastry team and creating seasonal desserts for both the restaurant and hotel events using local ingredients while keeping emphasis on the French-bistro theme of Bar Boulud. Every day, Ryan reminds himself and his team of his approach to success – “to make everything to the best of your ability at the highest level of professionalism.”
