Hello I am Erika Naomi – the creator of This Is Coco – the coconut queendom.

Originally from Amsterdam, I’ve spent the past 15 years living in different corners of the world in Latin America, Europe, the Middle East and Southeast Asia. Each one of these places has influenced my relationship with food and introduced me to a new culinary world.

Food is a very important part of my life – there are few things that I enjoy more than preparing, eating and connecting with others over a great dish!

Over the years I’ve become more conscious of the impact that food has on me.
This made me focus on using ingredients that not only taste great, but provide the fuel that my body needs to be at its best.

Food is our medicine and how we feel, function and look, depends largely on what we take in.

The recipes on This Is Coco are an eclectic mix of my own kitchen adventures, inspirations from travels, people in my life and random experiments.
