About Me

Delicious and healthy farm-to-table cuisine is one of my great passions in life! I ran a very successful chef business in San Francisco for many years while growing my career as an abstract painter. I recently transitioned back to Southern California after touring around the world, sampling cuisine and picking up new cooking techniques from diverse cultures !
I love meeting new people and creating revelry and magic for people to connect over in the comfort of their own homes .
Make your next celebratory occasion worldly, artful and unforgettable by hiring my chef services — you won’t regret it !
(I have been in this industry for 15 years … )

“ My family and I had a wonderful experience with Chef Nikki for my birthday dinner. She took the time to understand my food restrictions and gave me delicious options to choose for dinner. She was communicative, professional and extremely thorough.
Plus she left my kitchen immaculate afterwards! Easy going, and relaxing experience with her 👍🏼😃 “

“ I have had the privilege of attending several dinner parties where Chef Nikki was hired to prepare the feast. From appetizers to entrees and deserts you are in for a treat. She is a stickler for the freshest organic and nutrient dense ingredients and has skills for many cuisines. She has a big heart and aims to please her clients and their guests. These events have all been joyful and memorable culinary experiences . “

“ We engaged Chef Nikki with Gaia Cuisine to manage food for our 30th Wedding Anniversary celebration. We wanted to be sure everything went well, and that we could relax about details and enjoy our special day. Chef Nikki exceeded our expectations! She is organized, professional and has a superb understanding of preparing and serving healthy gourmet quality food . We highly recommend Chef Nikki and Gaia Cuisine . “

She was so easy to work with and created such a thoughtful menu for our group. I would definitely recommend and use again hopefully in the near future! “

“ Nikki is creative, professional, and all about meeting the individual needs of her customers. For our family, she created box lunches for a birthday picnic in a peach orchard, she cooked weekly family dinners during a very pressured time in our lives, and later she created heart-healthy meals that helped my vegetarian husband lose w after his heart attack . She’s a gem !!! “
