About Nichole

Welcome to my table...please sit where you feel most comfortable. I am so glad you made it here. I love spending time in our spacious kitchen (in fact, the living room is rarely used in our home), and if you don't already, I'd love to show you a way to love it, too.

Through seeking pleasure connected to nourishment, I have found my love for & in the kitchen - ever a sensory mix of sensuality and alchemy - and most days you can find me concocting there. The kitchen is such a perfect place to nurture our bodies, lives, and our communities, and sometimes we just need an infusion of creativity to make time spent cooking and baking more satisfying.

I am also very passionate about legacy and connecting people over food. I heard something mentioned on one of the many NPR shows I listen to along the lines of not being able to hate someone you've had dinner with, and I really resonated with that idea. So, through Long Table Workshops, I aim to connect multicultural people over food. You are so welcome to be a part of that mission.

I hope you'll stay a while...take in the site, check out the blog...and find the seduction in food that pulls you into your kitchen and helps to nourish you and those you love. Food is a language of Love - and it is a language I adore.

It is not enough to know the past of the people you interpret. You must know your own past.
