United States Chef
Jane Evans Bonacci Profile
The Heritage Cook ... sharing traditions one recipe at a time.
My grandmother started my lifelong passion, my mother guided my early learning, and living in the San Francisco Bay Area helped it blossom into a near obsession. Every restaurant I go to, every meal I eat, every friend who invites me to their house influences my cooking. Lately I've been experimenting with N. African seasonings and love them!
