From Pastries to Paleo

If your name sounds like it belongs to a country singer, you’d better do something that generates applause.

Linelle Lee is earning standing ovations for her two passions: this pastry chef and paleo fan offers paleo and gluten-free options on her Facebook page, Dulce Creations. If you can’t wait for a full meal, try one of her featured pastries at Electric City Coffee.

Born and raised in Louisiana, this busy young mother is impressed with Great Falls’ River’s Edge Trail and the proximity to art and nature in her husband’s hometown. “Sometimes people who grew up here aren’t as impressed with what Great Falls has to offer, but Great Falls has been…well, great!”

Linelle arrived with a culinary education and plenty of experience: she trained at Le Cordon Bleu in Sydney, Australia, and in the Gallatin Valley, she was pastry chef for a restaurant that earned honors for the “Best Dessert in Bozeman.”
