Nici Wickes is a TV Chef, a published cookbook author and food writer and restaurant critic for Viva, NZ Herald. She is all about great food - she travels for it, writes about it and eats it but more than anything, she enjoys sharing her love of cooking with others. Her fervent mission is to get New Zealanders cooking more.
Nici is well known for presenting the hugely successful cooking TV food-travel show, World Kitchen which, after five series, now screens in over 80 countries worldwide. The show follows Nici on her travels around the world meeting chefs, growers, producers and restaurateurs in search of inspiration, to bring back to her kitchen at home in New Zealand. Her cooking style can be summed up as "cooking without the fuss or stress, focussing on the flavour and authenticity of each dish", showing audiences how to adapt recipes from far flung countries to their own kitchens at home. Her latest much-celebrated cookbook, COOK EAT ENJOY, is a collection of her favourite recipes from around the world.
