On Friday, April 17, from 11 a.m. until they are sold out, you can get a preview of the raw space -- and the taste -- of the next chef John Besh venture, Willa Jean Bakery, and buy baked goods for a good cause. Some of your favorite bloggers are in on this deal, too.

The women pastry chefs behind Willa Jean are having a bake sale with some baking buddies, including Joy the Baker.

Here's the backstory. Besh is partnering with Kelly Fields, the Besh Restaurant Group executive pastry chef, and Lisa White, pastry chef of Domenica and Pizza Domenica, in a new bakery named for Fields' grandmother. Willa Jean Bakery will be located on an exterior corner of The Paramount at South Market District, 611 O'Keefe Ave.
