Hey there, I’m Gemma. My sisters and I know the importance of eating healthy and feeding your family fresh home-cooked meals. Our recipes are family favorites and recipes we created and tested ourselves. We are here to share our passion for cooking as the flavors of the Caribbean inspire us. Let’s get cookin’!

Meet the team

We believe that everyone can bring the taste of the Caribbean right into the comfort of their home. We enjoy sharing our family and Caribbean-inspired recipes. As we embrace and appreciate our Haitian Caribbean heritage, our passion for delicious foods, wholesome ingredients, and innovative recipe ideas has brought us thus far to share with you our favorite meals.

A little more about us!

The sisters’ upbringing in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, had an inculcation influence on their cooking. Their beloved mother was from the north side (Cap-Haitien) of the island, and their beloved father was from the south (Jacmel). Both parents met in Port-au-Prince, Haiti (the Capital), and settled to raise their family. At an early age, the sisters were introduced to north and south cooking, which sparked a culinary interest that would result in a perfect marriage of myriad bold and unique Caribbean flavors. Such exposure enticed their interest in cooking which would later drive them onto the road of Gourmet Foods.

To honor their parents and their love of cooking, the sisters combined both parents’ names, and that’s how the name Noubess was created. NouBess is their parents’ love story and legacy that will continue to imprint in their minds. Check out our Noubess Shop!
