Osteria Mozza Takeover at Shepherd: Nancy Silverton (Los Angeles)

Best known for revolutionising artisan breads and popularising sourdough in the US, Nancy is one of America’s most influential chefs. Her dedication to mixing flour, water and a little magic to create the perfect loaf was the result of hundreds of hours of trials, refinements and many sleepless nights. Nancy’s final product literally changed the bread game, as highlighted in a recent episode of the renowned Netflix series Chef's Table. Nancy is a chef, baker, and author and winner of the James Beard Foundation’s Outstanding Chef Award in 2014.

Nancy’s restaurant Osteria Mozza in Los Angeles is so well known many Angelenos can recite the menu by heart. And it’s from the heart that much of Nancy’s cooking comes from, so much so that it made Julia Child cry. Shepherd Elliott met Nancy while sitting at the Mozza Bar in LA last year and plucked up the courage to invite her to Wellington. We are thrilled that Nancy accepted and will be joining the team at Shepherd for a three-night collaboration. With thanks to the US Embassy.
