Our white chocolate coco cookie, the Coco Lena, is just as sweet as D. Lena Richard. Mrs. Richard (1892-1950) is the first African American woman to host her own cooking show. She is the author of a cookbook, owned restaurants, opened a culinary school for young black men and women, and started a frozen food business that shipped full-cooked frozen meals across the country.
