Mother and daughter team Monica and Lee founded Tan Rosie Foods in 2010 creating tantalising Caribbean food inspired by family recipes from Grenada and Carriacou from Birmingham, UK.
Monica has always been a passionate foodie. She has always been inspired by her family recipes, cookery shows and cooking at family BBQ’s. So when she retired from midwifery, she knew she wanted to continue with her passion for food as a hobby. Monica is a seasoned cook with a strong Caribbean heritage. She started cooking from an early age in her home country of Carriacou. Since moving to England in the 1960’s she has always tried to mix Caribbean cooking with different cuisines. “I love combining Caribbean flavours with my favourite foods. I try to bring a taste of ‘back home’ to everything I cook!”
Karie-Ann Lee was very inspired by her mothers cooking whilst growing up and has always loved experimenting in the kitchen. She left her previous career as a sportswear apparel/graphic designer, working for many famous international sports brands, and teamed up with her mother Monica to create Tan Rosie utilising her design and branding skills, whilst learning traditional recipes from her mother. Lee designed and created the Tan Rosie branding and since working with her mother, she too now creates unique Caribbean recipes and food products inspired by her mother’s teachings.
The name ‘Tan’ is an affectionate name for ‘Aunt’ in the Caribbean – Aunty, Tanty, Tan! ‘Rosie’ is Monica’s grandmother who inspired her to cook, she was known as ‘Tan Rosie’ throughout the family and beyond.
