The Table

Rougui Dia, the pastry queen

Her humility and natural modesty stop her from boasting about it, but Rougui Dia, born in Paris to Senegalese parents, is today a celebrity of French cuisine. In 2016, just before she opened a brand-new restaurant on the Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré in the 8th arrondissement of Paris, Rougui Dia spoke with MOYI.

You can find her now at Le French Bakery & Café, in Denver.
