LOS ANGELES– Nancy Silverton, the two-time James Beard Award-winning Chef, will be moving operations for her latest food venture, Nancy’s Fancy Gelato and Sorbetto Artigianale, this summer. Nancy’s Fancy’s new kitchen will be located in a 6,000 square-foot facility in the Arts District of Downtown Los Angeles that previously housed Mast Brothers Chocolatiers.
“I am very excited about this move — the Arts District is an ideal home for Nancy’s Fancy,” Silverton says. “The area is undergoing a renaissance, and we are looking forward to being a part of it.” With all manufacturing and hand-packing done in-house, Silverton believes “… having the gelato kitchen nearby will make oversight easier, which is important to me. I think keeping everything local and in my hometown is essential to producing the highest quality product.” The company kitchen was previously located in the northern San Fernando Valley.
The founder of the famously acclaimed, La Brea Bakery says that the new facility will make some changes possible. “Having a new, much larger facility designed specifically for the product will give us the opportunity to do some things I’ve been wanting to do, such as expand the flavor line and possibly add toppings and sauces. The thriving neighborhood also makes our new location ideal for a scoop shop.”
Nancy’s Fancy was founded in 2015. Since then it has grown throughout the southern California region and is making its way across the country. The artisan gelato and sorbetto line can be found at Southern California Whole Foods locations and Bristol Farms and Gelson’s markets throughout California. Luxury food retailer, Dean & DeLuca, features Nancy’s Fancy at its brick and mortar locations, as well as by catalog and internet. www.nancysfancy.com
