I’m Nicole and this is my personal cookbook.
I am a 25-year-old student currently living in Manchester who has an uncontrollable love for cooking, baking and eating anything delicious!
Originally from Kent in London, I have one older sister who is basically my twin and best friend and a husky named Ciara. I’m currently living away from home and find life in Manchester fun but I do miss home a lot and often spend my weekends hopping on the train for two nights of home comforts.
Baking has been in my family for generations (somewhere along the line I believe Mary Berry is a distant relative), my parents ran a highly successful restaurant, my grandmother was the pastry chef at Buckingham Palace and my grandfather was a baker in London.
You could say it is in the genes but I am also studying at Tante Marie, a culinary academy in Surrey where I really build on my skills and developed my passion into a career.
I’ve grown up cooking but blogging is a whole new world to me but I really wanted to fuse together the old with the new and have a place to showcase my work to monitor my progression but also to help others out there who want to develop their skills in the kitchen.
Nicole Cookbook will feature everything and anything; from my top recipes which I will update as regularly as I can to cooking tips and tricks, my favourite restaurants with some lifestyle and personal stuff thrown in there as well.
With each recipe I create I will try my hardest to post on here so there will be loads of stuff for you all to enjoy and have a go yourself.
I am currently on my gap year from Tante Marie and conducting a work placement in Manchester, so life is really busy right now and I don’t seem to have a minute in the day when I’m not creating, thinking about or eating food (it’s hard…trust me).
My dream is to one day own my own restaurant where there is a vibrant atmosphere, incredible food and in my hometown of Kent.
Join me on this journey as I try to become the best chef I can be, finish my degree and head into the big bad world of work.
