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 to name a few. In addition, you may find our desserts on the menu at dining establishments including The Market by Jennifer's Catering, FnB (look for our ice cream), AZ88 and Uncle Sal's.
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, ESSO Coffee, StoneGrindz Chocolate, 1-Acre Farm Jams, Desert Provisions, Carolina's Chocolate, 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 and an every-other-month cheese club featuring cheeses not available in Arizona.
