Born and reared in San Francisco, California by immigrants from Liberia, West Africa, and Guyana, South America, I came of age in the 70’s and 80’s, a time of immense cultural and social change in San Francisco. From as far back as I can remember, I was surrounded by different cultures and have always looked for similarities and distinct differences. I am passionate about Africa and the African Diaspora – food, foundation, and fashion. My love for the continent informs everything I do, my cooking style, how I decorate my personal space, and how I dress. As a first-generation American of African and Caribbean descent, I grew up surrounded by the culinary traditions, visual representations, and cultural practices that informed who I would become. In a nutshell, C.C. Pean as a brand is a love letter to the continent recognizing the majesty of Africa and its influence on world cuisine, design, and fashion.
Corporations, organizations, individuals, and celebrities have all benefited from C.C. Péan’s suite of services. See how she can help you or your organization!
