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

"Seattle's Best Candy Makers" ::  feb '13
"The moment we met Marisa Lown’s caramels, it was love at first bite. We savored the way they melted across our tongues (without sticking to our teeth!), and oohed and aahed at her seasonal flavors: chocolate and basil, grapefruit and black pepper, honey and lemon, and, of course, fleur de sel and vanilla bean."
