Meet Cansu & Emir from the Okanagan Pasta Company


Everything started with Cansu's passion for eating pasta. Each trip we took to a different country or a city, finding the fresh pasta was her number one priority.

The year 2020 proved to us, once again how important life is. Without love and passion, it is tough to enjoy life itself. During the global lockdown, we had the chance to stop and listened to ourselves. Soon we rediscovered our love for cooking again, and pasta was the favorite of all.

Husband and wife team

Both of us have a Bachelors's degree in Culinary Arts and Management and a College degree in Pastry Arts. We both have over ten years of work experience in the Culinary Industry.

A small community kitchen in Kelowna, BC, paved the way for us to start building our passion slowly but surely. Old kitchen notebooks from our University years had many pasta recipes. However, they needed fine-tuning and adjusting to showcase 100% organic Canadian Durum flour and freshest BC farmed eggs together with the highest quality local produce.

First Artisan Pasta producer in Okanagan offering customers the very best of pasta for their family and personal consumption.

After a few trials and errors, the dough recipe was ready. We had to find the available produce from nearby farms and make sauces to accompany our noodles.

Although this wasn't enough, we had to create an experience to share with our community, so we came up with the Fresh Pasta kits idea and let some friends try it.

While working on our dry pasta line, we will be offering fresh pasta kits every Friday delivered fresh and free to your door.

Please join us on this journey and stay tuned for some delicious news. 

Lots of love, 
Cansu & Emir
