ABOUT WHISK

There is a certain emotional attachment to that first time we tried our favorite dessert.  The smells of browning butter and caramelizing sugar flowing from the oven. That first bite in to a chocolate indulgence that leaves a post it note attached to your memories under the tab “omg let’s please eat this again soon!” Whisk is a dedication to revisiting those moments. Every dessert in our kitchen is built from the butter up. That meaning no pre-made tarts or doughs or instant mix fillings come to our kitchen. Every cookie, pastry, gelato and plated dessert is made from scratch - right here in house.

But a dedication to scratch ingredients doesn’t assure any success. It is the quality of those ingredients that really drives it home. Our chocolates are imported from France & Belgium. They were all tasted (and re-tasted and re-tasted…) to assure that every morsel in our munchies is top notch. Fresh fruits and local ingredients bring big flavors that will leave an impression. With a scratch kitchen & unparalleled ingredients, there is only one thing left to bring this all together. That being a professional staff of chefs and bakers.
