Nina’s work combines a passion for the intersections between food, culture, wellness and ecology. She has a decade of experience working in the culinary industry; her cooking background includes studying the regional cuisine of her family’s home country of Morocco, apprenticing both abroad and in leading US restaurants, five years of work as a private chef in her home state of California, and five years of hands-on experience as an active culinary gardener with a focus on restoration. Throughout her career she has worked with school garden nonprofits in both New York and Los Angeles, was a co-initiator of the Ziza Urban Farm project in Los Angeles, and is currently cultivating her own garden in the North Bay Area to grow and advocate for culturally important, nourishing, sustainable foods.
