Nikki spent a year in Ballymaloe, she did the 12 week certificate course and stayed working in the Crawford Art Gallery in Cork City (owned by the Allen's) and afterwards in the main house in Ballymaloe as pastry chef.  Nikki then returned to Dublin, and worked in a number of restaurants and catering companies.

Nikki got distracted from the food world and worked in the family pharmacy business for a number of years. She exited the Pharmacy in 2011 and pursued her true passion - food.  In a nutshell, Nikki's utter passion is teaching how to cook delicious food, using locally sourced Irish produce, with the maximum of  taste in a cost effective and simple manner.
