Pastry Chef Lauren Crosby of Black Trumpet Bistro - Biography

Portsmouth, NH

August 2013

Soft spoken and shy, Lauren Crosby, the pastry chef at Black Trumpet Bistro, brings her extensive savory experience to the sweet kitchen. Crosby, who has been in the Portsmouth culinary community for many years, does not serve the usual fare such as ice cream. Instead, she spikes chevre with vanilla and whipped cream with flowers and rose water. Her heavy hand of salt and seasoning balances her dishes and lets the flavors pop instead of being overshadowed by sugary sweetness.
