Nathan’s Oven – A Gastronomic Delight

Rich Belgian Chocolate Brownies, Italian Pizzas, Xacuti, Cafreal and much more at Nathan’s Oven in Sangolda, North Goa. It’s the ‘new kid on the block’. Are you hungry?

A family venture between Elaine and Jerusha Nathan, the mother-daughter duo, who always dreamed of making a mark in the food industry. With a degree in Home Science at Nirmala Niketan, Mumbai, Elaine has always been passionate about cooking. Jerusha too, holds a degree in Culinary Arts from the prestigious ITM-IHM, Oshiwara, Mumbai. Jerusha’s forte, however, is Italian fare – Pasta, Pizzas etc. Fulfilling this longtime dream of theirs, Nathan’s Oven was conceived.

While interviewing Jerusha and her dad, Joshua Nathan, who were present at the venue, Joshua, the pillar behind this venture, gave all credit to Brisco Lobo and Hazel of AJ Supermarket. In the words of Joshua, “I would like to say a big thank you to Brisco Lobo and Hazel, without whose support this venture would not have been possible”.  They have not only allowed Jerusha and Elaine to fulfill their dreams but also encouraged budding Goan entrepreneurs to generate employment in the State. Thank you, Brisco Lobo and Hazel for your unstinted support!
