selected press features for Marisa Lown, Executive Pastry Chef

Gertrude's | Phoenix, Arizona | Dec. 2012 - Dec. 2013

"The brown butter apple tart is exceptional, with a sage-accented crust and a dollop of honey lavender caramel and creme fraiche."
- Howard Seftel, restaurant critic for The Arizona Republic

"Forks audibly screeched against plates as my companions savored the last bites of dense, pan-seared bread moistened with tart prickly pear jam."
- Wynter Holden, Phoenix Magazine

"Just plan ahead for pastry chef Marisa Lown's sweets, such as … I Love You Like Chocolate, a warm flourless dark chocolate cake with semisweet chocolate semifreddo and malted milk chocolate truffle (completely worth the calorie count)."
- Bite, the Magazine

"Chef Marisa('s) … marcona almond "S'more" macaron, salted caramel and egg nog. No joke, I woke up at 4am after this dinner thinking about how perfect the macaron was. It was light, with the right little bit of crackle when I bit into it and the (smoked) chocolate and marshmallow had me looking for a campfire."
- Restaurant Live Arizona

"Stout caramel whipped cream: delicious. I could have eaten a tub of just that. The apples were perfectly cooked, and the five-spice and brown butter came through beautifully."
- Rachel Miller, Chow Bella

"I finished my Gertrude's culinary journey with Pastry Chef Marisa's addicting "Milk & Cookies." It consisted of Mesquite-smoked dark chocolate ganache, Darjeeling tea infused sweet milk ice cube, and a chocolate chip biscuit. It was perfection. Someone should tell Santa he should raise his expectations."
- Q The Chef
