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, Changing Hands Bookstore, GenuWine, Hyatt Scottsdale, Mountain Shadows Resort, Tempe Center for the Arts, Roosevelt Row Terminal 4 of Sky Harbor, Dos Cabezas Winery and Callaghan Vineyards (Sonoita) to name a few. In addition, you may find our desserts on the menu at dining establishments including Garage-East, Anthem Golf Course & Country Club, Arizona Country Club, Nook Arcadia, Nook Downtown, AZ88 and Uncle Sal's.
We also boast a pretty sweet little retail space shared with ODV Wines. Stop in for a selection of desserts, confections, local ( and not so local) products including Fossil Creek Creamery Fudge & Goats Milk Lotion, Desert Provisions, Carolina's Chocolate, Iconic Cocktail Mixers, Kreeky Tree Farm Jam, K + M Olive Oil Chocolate, Cutino's Hot Sauce, AZ Bitters Lab Bitters, 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. Interested? Ask Tracy.
