Osprey Tavern pastry chef Kristy Carlucci brought together six of the city's very best dessert maestros for a convention of confections dubbed Pastry in the Park. The chefs presented a seven-course dessert tasting (with beverage pairings) for the sugar-addicted souls gathered at the Baldwin Park boîte.

In addition to Carlucci, the event saw Urbain 40's Amanda McFall, the Ravenous Pig's Esther Rodriguez, Luma on Park's Brian Cernell, Canvas Restaurant's Amy Gilbert, 1921's Gloriann Rivera and K Restaurant's Michelle Hubert whipping up some superlatively sweet and creative insulin-testers. Here's a look:
