- PASTRY, REDESIGNED -
Handcrafted in Pasadena, California
meet the chef
From childhood sketch classes to Art History courses in college, Monique has been steeped in art her whole life. However, it wasn't until she started baking that she found her preferred medium
Since graduating as valedictorian of her pastry school in Paris, Monique has ceaselessly pursued excellence, working in renowned bakeries (Dominique Ansel Bakery), five star hotels (Le Bristol Paris) and multiple Michelin starred restaurants (Epicure, The French Laundry). These achievements culminated in her role as Executive Pastry Chef of gastronomic restaurant Écriture in Hong Kong, which received two Michelin stars in a record-breaking seven months after opening.
After noticing that the most innovative and refined pastries are often reserved for the world of fine dining, Monique has been on a quest ever since to bring that level of elegance to a more accessible setting.
Chez Momo, the intersection where art meets pastry, is therefore a direct product of that mission. We hope to disseminate beauty and cultivate love in the world via food, one kitchen at a time.
