Executive 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.
Forever engaged in the restaurant hospitality industry—where it has been, where it is at and where it is going. I truly enjoy the interaction that occurs while guests are enjoying themselves with friends and family over a well thought meal.
There’s nothing more satisfying than being able to serve my fellow human beings. At the dinner table, we are all one.
