Rougui Dia, born in Paris to Senegalese parents, learned the flavors and savors of Senegalese cuisine in her mother’s kitchen. She is now head chef at Le 144, a fine-dining restaurant located in the 7th arrondissement. The owner of the restaurant, Armen Petrossian, is the son and nephew of the founders of the prestigious caviar boutique Petrossian. We write about their passion for preparing great epicurean fare in this month's Le Bon Goût.
