Trained as a classic French-pastry chef at the French Culinary Institute, Romina Rasmussen, the owner of the restaurant Les Madeleines, prepares everything at her patisserie and cafe from scratch right here in Salt Lake. Interestingly, she says her food need meet only two requirements: be pretty and delicious. Well, check and check. The classics take on new life at Les Madeleines, where a croissant might be spiked with Valrhona chocolate; an éclair with Meyer lemon, coffee, pistachio and cardamom; or a cupcake with green tea and jasmine. At lunch, try the sesame chicken wrap, prepared with chicken, sesame mayo, cilantro, scallions, sesame seeds wrapped in butter lettuce and a rice wrapper served with edamame and miso dressing
