Crème by Cat Cora
The Cat Cora collection is notable as it is the result of a close collaboration between two female food industry leaders — Cora and California Caviar owner Deborah Keane — who strive to make sustainable caviar an everyday indulgence.
About Cat Cora
Trained at the Culinary Institute of America and went on to cook at two 3-star Michelin restaurants in France, made television history in 2005, when she became the first female Iron Chef on Food Network’s Iron Chef America. Since then, she shattered the glass ceiling as one of the first females to dominate the historically male culinary industry. Cat has blazed her own trail through the culinary world, becoming the first female inducted into The Culinary Hall of Fame.
She has opened over 18 restaurants worldwide highlighting her platform on health, wellness, and sustainability. She has written three successful cookbooks and a memoir. If that wasn’t enough, Cat started Chefs for Humanity 14 years ago helping to raise funds and provide resources for important emergency, educational and hunger-related causes. In 2018, Cat started her Women’s Empowerment Culinary Internship to mentor, give back and Help women succeed in the culinary arts.
President Barack Obama awarded Cat the President’s Volunteer Service Award and the President’s Lifetime Achievement Award.
About California Caviar Company
Founded by Deborah Keane in 2007, California Caviar Company has been one of the pioneers in the sustainable caviar movement since its launch. The company mindfully raises its own fish near the California Delta, outside of Sacramento, California in addition to sourcing caviar and roe domestically and worldwide. Its products are distributed to notable restaurants and hotels and to gourmet food markets.
Deborah Keane, the first female caviar company owner in the US, is an industry veteran who’s been dubbed “The Caviar Queen,” a name she’s embraced with a sense of irony given the fact that sometimes the job is far from glamorous, such as when she dons waders and gets in the tanks with the 100-pound sturgeon at her farm.
