It was a teenage summer in Italy that awakened Nancy to the delight and power of food. As a journalist some twenty years later she attended cooking schools in Sicily, Tuscany and Lombardy, learning to cook from top Italian chefs. On returning to the States and adopting a macrobiotic diet and approach to food and eating, Nancy’s life was transformed by the birth of her two daughters. Now a certified macrobiotic counselor, she crafts innovative, integrative food awareness education and cooking programs for children and adults. The kitchen is her happy place, and teaching is her happy state.
