Edwards Dessert Kitchen is the ultimate dessert destination in Minneapolis’ North Loop. Decadent desserts are made in house daily and range from rich chocolate hazelnut Rocher Mousse to refreshing key lime cheesecake and seasonal tasting flights.
As an accompaniment to the dessert menu, Edwards Dessert Kitchen features artisan coffee from St. Paul-based True Stone Coffee Roasters, a carefully crafted cocktail menu developed in partnership with Tattersall Distillery, and a curated selection of wine and beer.
Chef Jasmine Weiser loves to push culinary boundaries, especially in desserts. While earning her degree in Patisserie & Baking at Le Cordon Bleu, she began her professional career practicing traditional French pastry technique at Minneapolis’ Patisserie 46. She then went on to become Pastry Chef of Mercy Bar & Dining Room where she led dessert menu development and honed her signature, artistic style — bringing together complementary colors, textures, and ingredients to create desserts that are unique, beautiful and delicious.
At Edwards Dessert Kitchen, Jasmine takes special delight in wowing her guests with leading-edge ingredient combinations found in her Huckleberry & Violet plated dessert or her Mango Cilantro Sorbet, which draws inspiration from typically savory global cuisine.
“I want to inspire people when they look in our pastry case to ask themselves, ‘How did they do that?’” Jasmine says. “I also love to mentor young cooks and watch them grow and see what they create.”
Edwards Dessert Kitchen’s founding chef is Chef Christina Kaelberer.
A Minnesota native, Chef Christina worked alongside some of the greatest chefs in the country, including Jean George at Spice Market in New York and Michael Chiarello at Bottega in California; Christina was the executive pastry chef at New York’s famed Rainbow Room and has competed on “Iron Chef America.” Most recently, Christina won the award for Outstanding Baker/Pastry Chef at the Twin Cities 2019 Charlie Awards.
Today Chef Christina, whose signature desserts the Mango Coconut Crème Pie Puff and Salted Butter Chocolate Chunk Cookies are consistent menu must-haves, continues to share her culinary expertise as a menu consultant and mentor.
