About this pro

I learned how to cook through trial and error at my Mother's side, and then cemented my fundamentals by studying food too! I have a decade of working in restaurants but love cooking with friends and family in my home kitchen.

It is impossible for one person to know everything about cooking so I love focussing on one area at a time, learning and making mistakes and figuring out the best (and easiest, and most foolproof!) Ways to make food using the skills I have from experience, and a little bit of gumption to not worry about being bad at it at first. Then, I can pass it on to you!

My classes are pressure free and there is no expectations on what you "should" know. Let's learn some things together, make mistakes and get messy together, and make something delicious together!

  • Kathy Cowell

    The attention to detail and the focused love of food, it really does inspire one to learn how to cook and be as passionate as Nicola

  • Tina Young

    Coming from a person who lacks a lot of confidence in the kitchen, cooking with Sage Against the Tagine was easy to understand, so much fun and the food was absolutely delicious. Thank you for showing me how to shine in the kitchen! I think I might brave some of the cake courses next.

    What an experience! For someone who only barely knows the difference between salt and pepper, this was the key that unlocked the door to magnificent cooking! So thankful!!

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

There are two ways you can go:

1. Pick a lesson, nice and easy and I decide what you need to know to be a pro at Cake decorating or pasta making (for example)

2. We work together to build a speciallised leson focussing on deshes and skills you particularly want to learn

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I went to culinary and business school and have worked in restaurants for the last 15 years. After the 9-5 grind no longer "brought me joy", I went off on my own, doing recipe development for brands, and helping food photographers take beautiful photos. 

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

A 1.5 hour lesson is about  $150, without equipment and ingredients. It does depend on a few factors for instance, the number in your group! I will provide you detailed shopping list and links to order any equipment you dont have online.

If we happen to be in close proximity or are doing an inperson lesson, I can provide ingredients for an additional fee.
