Food for Thought

Based on cooking styles from around the world, we’ll take a look at the store-cupboard-staples necessary to provide a nutritious delicious veggie meal at any time. It’s not about spending loads of money on staples you might not need, but rather, keeping a stock of what you like and love. Getting to know your taste buds and learning to be versatile are key elements to cooking with love and style. Packed with tips and tricks and good-for-you-ingredients, joining Nikki for the day or the afternoon will lift your spirits and raise your standards, giving you the confidence to take your veggie cooking to the next level.

Veggie Masterclass ~ 90€ per person

Includes all tuition, tips and tricks, ingredients, lunch and a signed and dedicated copy of one of Nikki’s popular recipe books.

Starting at around 10am, we’ll get cracking straightaway by cooking up a constellation to share at lunchtime, enjoying the spoils of our hard work with a refreshing glass of wine. In the afternoon, we’ll carry on cooking and chatting (and clearing up!), so that by the end of the day you’ll have something to take home, finish off, and proudly share with your friends and family.

Please bring tins and tupperware for your take-away home experience!


Do - it - Yourself Dinner ~ 65€ per person

Includes all tuition, tips and tricks, ingredients and dinner.

Starting at around 3.30pm, we’ll organise what’s on the menu then discuss what needs to be done and in what order. Under my direction and instruction, we’ll spend the time cooking, chatting and clearing up! so that by around 8pm we’ll have our 3-course dinner ready and prepped, the kitchen cleared, the table made, and something scrumptious to sit down to and share with others. Cheers!
