Since completing the Scottsdale Community College's culinary program in 1999, Tracy Dempsey has brought her unique take on composed desserts to Valley restaurants ranging from Lon's at the Hermosa Inn, Restaurant Hapa, Gregory's World Bistro to Cowboy Ciao. Although the cuisine and style of the venues in which she's practiced her art have varied widely, by focusing on flavors and utilizing seasonal ingredients, successful dessert programs that combine both sweet and savory elements have been a consistent outcome.
Since leaving Cowboy Ciao in early June 2009, Tracy has been incorporating her dessert expertise into the "Tracy Dempsey Originals" line of packaged boutique confections that she sells at,Sphinx Date Palm & Pantry, GenuWine, Twisted Union Wine Co. and Callaghan Vineyards (Sonoita) to name a few. In addition, you may find our desserts on the menu at dining establishments including Garage-East, The Market by Jennifer's, AZ88.
We also boast a pretty sweet little retail space shared with ODV Wines. We offer a selection of desserts, confections, and other products including DerekSips Coffee, StoneGrindz Chocolate, Desert Provisions, Carolina's Chocolate, K + M Olive Oil Chocolate, AZ Bitters Lab Bitters, Tillen Farms Bada Bing Cherries & pickles for cocktails as well as the beloved Original Bacon Pecan Brittle. We host weekly CSA pick-ups for Sun Produce Co-op which works with local Arizona growers and farmers to bring the freshest, in-season produce to its members. We also offer an every-other-month wine club featuring off-the-beaten path wines.
