Chef Monique “Mosa” Armand

Chef Armand has always had a love for food and that passion came to life at the young age of 13. She began by recreating recipes that she saw Family members cook and uniquely made them her own. Since that time she has been cooking for Family, Friends, and has been catering for the last 4 years offering Meal Preps, Intimate Invent Catering, Kitchen Parties and Private Chef Services. She first started off by offering meal prep and catering services in December 2012 and began building her fan base and uniquely placing herself in the untapped niche market. The first time she publicly sold her food was at the Downtown Pop Up Shop held at Art Space during the 2015 Christmas Holidays. There she continued to build her brand and create a bigger customer base. The doors to the Cafe opened March 1, 2016 and have attracted many customers from Downtown as well as the surrounding Shreveport/Bossier area. Chef Armand also participated in the LA Food Prize “Battle of the Golden Fork”, where she was one of five finalists chosen by her fan base to compete in a “Chopped” style event. Now she plans to continue to do what she love best and that’s cooking and satisfying her customers and clients!

Sassi Cafe offers healthy but delicious lunch time favorites. It’s comparable to fast food but healthier!

Sassi focuses on healthy renditions of traditional favorites to uniquely created cuisines.

Chef Armand believes healthy eating is not about strict nutrition philosophies, staying unrealistically thin, or depriving yourself of the foods you love. Rather, it's about feeling great, having more energy, stabilizing your mood, and keeping yourself as healthy as possible- all of which can be achieved by applying some nutrition basics and using them in a way that works for you.

Sassi the New Healthy!!
