Nancy’s Organic Kitchen
My culinary passion is genetic. I inherited the love of cooking from my mother and brother. Both were amazing entrepreneurs who developed the first northern Italian restaurant called Pasta Etc. Everyday I would visit their Sunset Blvd location and be treated to the most delicious, homemade pastas smothered in the best imported tomato sauces.. made fresh daily. It was their inspiration that led me to discover how I could create fabulous recipes using organically grown food…thus Nancy’s Organic Kitchen is meant to inspire you with simple ideas and recipes that you can adapt or create too.
