About

 

Coco /ˈkōkō/ adj. : happy, light, tropical.   

Coco Fine Foods is an award-winning, modern, artisanal food company in South Florida. With a passion for local foods and tropical flavors, we are dedicated to sourcing fresh, sustainable produce wherever possible and selecting the finest quality of  ingredients for our products.

Our seasonal jams are handcrafted in Mauviel copper preserving pans utilizing French methods which yield a more versatile, fruit-driven product. We combine traditional, natural preserving techniques with elements of modern gastronomy through a playful and thought-provoking fusion of flavor, texture and aromas.

Our exotic spices used in our jams are fragrant, heirloom varieties sourced directly from new-age artisanal farmers and boutique spice estates around the world. 

We carefully select glass jars that are hand sealed and hand labeled with luxury estate papers so as to ensure an exceptional gift for host, to mark a special occasion or to simply enjoy and share at table.

Each element of Coco Fine Foods is considered and meticulous in detail, from the responsible sourcing of ingredients through to the thoughtful design and presentation of our products to our customers.                                                        

 

 

Founder of Coco Fine Foods

Catherine Nolan is a professional cook trained to Michelin level in French cuisine and pastry. 

Food has always played an important role in her life: born in Scotland and spending her childhood between Ireland, the US, and South America, she developed an early interest in cuisine, as the rituals of culinary tradition offered structure to a nomadic childhood.

Catherine’s culinary explorations continued as an adult living in Europe, as she savored and drew inspiration from the markets of Europe, North Africa, and the Middle East. Coco Fine Foods products encapsulate the diversity of sensory elements she has encountered through her travels.

Her many years as a practicing psychotherapist informs and underpins her culinary sensibility with a story telling narrative. She believes that everything emotional and living can be sublimated into food and communicated to others creatively through cooking.  A delicate dance between the cook in what they offer of themselves and the interpretation of its meaning by others.
