A Dash of Coco LLC.
Kareen “Chef Coco” Linton, was born on the island Barbados and was raised in Brooklyn, New York from the age of nine. Kareen was introduced to great food at a very early age in Barbados, by her Aunt Day and Grandmother Catherine. She was also surrounded by fashion design, by Phylis and art by artist Slyvan Kinch, who are both the children of Aunt Day. They all have been huge inspirations and ignited her passion for the arts. That passion was further developed when she moved to Brooklyn with her family. New York became the perfect backdrop for displaying all of her creativity. He mother, Una Linton, who was a chef, further imparted a deeper passion for creating great food. Since the passing of her mother last year, Kareen feels the torch has been passed on to her.
