After dozens of awards and over three decades creating gourmet recipes in restaurants and for cookbooks, Nancy’s passion for desserts and particularly gelato fueled her to launch her first product line, Nancy’s Fancy —an artisanal collection of gelatos and sorbettos. Nancy’s Fancy recipes are inspired by well-loved desserts, with a focus on perfecting classic flavors and enhancing them with touches that add a distinctive new note.

About The Food

This traditional Italian gelato comes in many “Fancy” flavors like Butterscotch Budino, Zabaglione, Coconut Stracciatella, and Spiced Stumptown Coffee. All varieties are churned in Southern California and made with only the freshest, locally sourced natural ingredients, using pasteurized, hormone-free milk. There are no added preservatives, artificial flavors, colors, or high fructose corn syrup in the Nancy’s Fancy line, and there are even dairy free and vegan options!

Meet The Chef

As a two-time James Beard Award-winning chef, Nancy Silverton is in very rare company. In 2014 she won the James Beard Award for Outstanding Chef (their most prestigious award) and in 1990 for the Best Pastry Chef of the Year. Chef Nancy Silverton discovered her passion for cooking working in a vegetarian kitchen in her college dormitory in Sonoma, California, then more formally pursued her culinary education at Le Cordon Bleu in London and the Lenotre Culinary Institute in France. After a legendary baking career in which she re-defined dessert as the head pastry chef at the iconic Spago in southern California, and brought artisanal bread to California as the founder of La Brea bakery, Nancy has turned her focus to Italian gelato. She continues creating, innovating and inspiring by bringing unparalleled gelato and sorbetto into our homes with Nancy’s Fancy.
