Thank-you for your interest in my Cooking Workshops & Events.

I have been sharing my passion and knowledge for cooking and eating well for over 14 year. My favourite ingredients are those already found in the pantry and easy to obtain and I am huge supporter of local producers and love eating with the seasons (either from our large vegetable garden, or produce from the local farmers’ markets). My food focus is on flavoursome recipes using ingredients that are packed with nutrients drawing on my knowledge as a trained chef and dip. of natural nutrition. I have also studied a certificate in adult education, which I find invaluable for sharing my experience in the best possible way.

I live in Nelson, New Zealand with my husband and two young children (5 & 7 years) on a 1/4 acre urban property where we grow vegetables, care for our 35 (and counting) fruiting trees and plants, and keep happy free-range chooks. When I am not cooking or spending time with my family, I work as a freelance food writer, stylist and photographing for magazines, publications and food companies. I am the author of 4 cookbooks including the popular Feeding Little Tummies (now out of print) with my fourth cookbook Homegrown Kitchen – Everyday Recipes For Eating Well released April 2017. You can find more of my recipes on my award-winning food blog Homegrown Kitchen.

    Hi Nicola, I would like to ask if there is an opportunity to purchase a gift voucher towards to a future workshop and whether there may be some workshops in the next year, held in Wellington.
    I would personally like to attend to a workshop but it will need to be accessible in term of communication as I am Deaf. I would need a NZ Sign Language Interpreter for a workshop. I will contact iSign booking organisation to see if they can fund an interpreter for this type of workshop prior booking.
    I look forward reading from you.
    Kind Regards

      Hi Theresa, thank-you for your message. I am not sure of my dates for Wellington at this time. Were you interested in a voucher for Wellington? I would be very happy for you to come along with an interpreter (no charge for them) when I next come your way. The best way is to join my events newsletter and when you see a class you would like to come to contact me so I can hold a place for you while you check with iSign. Would you like me to add you to my mailing list?
      You may also enjoy reading my new cookbook if you haven’t already 🙂
      Warmest, Nicola
