Pastry Chef Mame Sow draws her inspiration from seasonal ingredients, spices, colors and the juxtaposition of the sweet and the savory. Spending her first eleven years in Dakar, Senegal, she is a graduate of New York’s own Park West High School where she studied under C-CAP and ultimately garnered a scholarship to the International Culinary Center.

Mame’s talents have been cultivated at the Townhouse Restaurant Group (including Aquavit, Riingo, Merkato 55), David Burke at Bloomingdales, Hotel Rivington and ultimately at Spot Dessert bar where she served as pastry chef when it won Best Dessert Bar NYC 2010.

Chef Sow’s favorite ingredient to work with is chocolate and when she is not whipping up the most delicate, indulgent, dream-worthy desserts for the Cecil and Minton’s, she is studying cookbooks, writing her dessert blog or browsing through the aisles of Kalustyans a spice store in Manhattan .
