Jenna Leurquin Patisserie in Scottsdale
Jenna Leurquin Patisserie was created to offer an authentic patisserie experience in Arizona. Her creations are inspired by the seasons, and current trends are represented through collections. With this original approach to pastry, we work on revolutionizing even the most firmly entrenched traditions.
As we first eat with our eyes, our objective is to create pastries that stand out and are visually innovative. Further, we focus on delivering the highest quality of pastries while utilizing the best ingredients. This commitment involves respecting each ingredient and baking in the tradition of high French and European pastry making.
Because we consider pastries the most indulgent food, we are on a quest to create pastries in which sugar is brushed aside to reveal the nobility of the composition. We strive to balance acidity, sweetness, and bitterness by honoring the nature of each ingredient. Thus, we value the importance of seasonal flavorful ingredients, respect the product in its most natural form, and abide by a detailed baking process.
While sweet childhood memories and traditional flavors are the inspiration, we innovate our pastries with the newest ingredients and a sense of simplicity and exclusivity.
After double‐majoring at Boise State University as a student athlete on the golf team, Jenna realized the United States was lacking in fresh wholesome foods. Being part of those who believe in the importance of quality ingredients and artisanal practices, Jenna followed her passion and traveled to Paris to become a chef. She completed her training at Le Cordon Bleu Paris in both cuisine and pastry before continuing under the tutelage of some of the best chefs in Belgium and Paris. Passionate about pastries that can combine indulgent flavors and decadent textures, Jenna stresses the importance of savoir faire without neglecting her most important role: bringing joy and a taste of European culture to our community. Jenna’s developing style was influenced by her travels and multicultural encounters, leading her to innovate the traditional pastries that she believes “bring back all of the best memories.”
