    Amazing Jerk chicken
    Nicole is a wonderful hostess. The view was amazing at such a wonderful location. Everyone had a great time. Even if you’re not into cooking, this class was so much fun. The food was very very delicious. So much fun and good eats! Highly recommend!

    Great food, even better company
    First time doing a cooking class on vacation, and I really enjoyed the concept. We cooked, laughed, ate and sipped on rum all afternoon. Learned a lot about the island and culture. Met fellow travelers from around the world. I'd highly recommend the activity to anyone.
    Thank you for the review, and learning how much fun it is to hang out with a bunch of foodies for an afternoon. Please try the recipes at home and contact us via our NicolesTable.com website if you have any questions. Foodies unite! Nicole and Adam

    Cooking with Rum Cooking Class
    I thoroughly enjoyed the class and the authentic cooking experience in Nicole's home. Working together with others was delightful and the meal was great! The Rum Tasting with Adam was unique and excellent. I look forward to returning for another class with Nicole.
    Hello Geraldine! Thank you for the review. Our Caribbean cooking classes are always good fun especially since we keep to 12 or less people which makes them a lot more interactive. We look forward to seeing you again! As the years pass, we get more and more repeat visitors which gives a whole different feel to the classes... more like old friends getting together to cook. Until next time! Nicole and Adam

    Wonderful Day with Chef Nicole
    My husband and I had a lovely day with Chef Nicole and Adam. We helped cook delicious food (with rum!) and then had a rum tasting with Adam. Beautiful day and such lovely people. This was actually my second visit, and I will be certain to go again the next time I'm in Antigua! I highly recommend.
    Hey Vivian! It was great seeing you again and we're happy to know that you and your husband had a great time. These days the Rum cooking class is popular. We had 3 for your week alone. Anyhow, thank you for coming and taking the time to give us a review. As always, feel free to reach out via NicolesTable.com or email if you have questions. All the best! Nicole and Adam

    Cooking with Nicole
    We had a lovely day preparing and eating our "From the Sea" lunch in a beautiful island setting. Nicole and her staff expertly guided our group of 6 as we prepared our lunch in her home. This was the best culinary experience we've had on our travels.
    Wow! The best? Thank you, Robin. That is a wonderful review. Please reach out via NicolesTable.com or email if you have questions about the recipes when you get home. Also, if you want more recipes, just go to the recipes section on our website and have fun. All the best until we see you again, Nicole and Adam

    Fun and delicious!
    This was our second visit to Nicole's beautiful home. My husband and I had so enjoyed our visit while on a cruise in 2022, that we arranged for a return visit during a stay in Antigua to cook another delicious meal. We had a wonderful time meeting the other guests, and preparing and enjoying a meal together. It is such a fine way to learn about the culture of the island!
    Thank you for taking the time to write this review. We love getting to see our guests year after year. We now have guests who have attended our classes 5 years or more in a row (ignoring COVID, of course). Anyhow, thank you for coming again AND the review! Nicole and Adam

    A Great Options For Foodies Visting Antigua
    On a recent visit to Antigua while on a cruise, my wife and I came across this option while looking for something fun and different to do while in port. We love cooking and enjoying and learning about local flavors so this seemed to be a great fit. We're glad we did. It was a busy day in port with 6 ships in that day, so to get to go somewhere away from the crowds with only 8 other guests turned out to be a wonderful added bonus,. The classes are taught at Nicole and Adams beautiful home high on a hill overlooking the port and Caribbean Sea below. We spent several hours meeting new friends, enjoying Nicole's special rum punch and learning about the local flavors and how to prepare them. Nicole and Adam were very warm and welcoming and everyone was involved with the prep and cooking process of all of the wonderful, fresh foods we prepared. At the end we all sat down and enjoyed a family-style feast on their patio enjoying the stunning views and wonderful food. This was the best excursion we experienced the entire week on our trip and look forward to returning to Antigua to stay a little longer and attend another class at Nicole's Table. If you are staying on the island or just in for a day and looking for something fun and different, we highly recommend visiting and enjoying a class.
    Wow! Thank you Roger. It gives us a boost to find out that we were your favorite excursion for your trip. We treat all of visitors they same way we do when we have friends visiting. Cooking together is a big part of life in the Caribbean. We're glad you got to experience that life for a brief moment. That said, we hope we do see you two again and encourage you to try the recipes at home. Don't worry, if you have a question, just reach out to us via our NicolesTable.com website. Thank you and all the best until we meet again, Nicole and Adam

    Delicious food, amazing lady
    What a lovely lady and an amazing day. The easiness of the recipes and the tastiness of the food made this a very special say (21st April). If you get the opportunity, I recommend you go along for a session. The amazing views are just an added bonus.
    Thank you for taking the time to give us a review Jackie. We're glad the day went well for you right down to the view.

We had a great time and learned a lot. Chef Nicole was a charming hostess who made sure everyone had a good time helping her prepare a Caribbean feast. The venue was very special, with beautiful grounds and a spectacular view.

From the beginning, reserving this outing, Nicole's husband was extremely helpful with gathering information about getting a taxi to and from their home, which is up on a hill with a gorgeous view of the landscape and water. We were six in the class, and one had already taken Nicole's classes twice before, which is high recommendation in itself. With Nicole's very easygoing leadership, we measured, mixed, poured, and fried. Then while things were taken in and out of the oven, pureed, and prepared for presentation, Adam treated us to a tasting of six Caribbean rums. Our lunch was sumptuous and delicious. We ate on the huge veranda, got to know one another a little better, and enjoyed the views. Both Nicole and Adam are wonderful hosts and teachers, very easygoing. High marks for every aspect of this class.

Chef Nicole and her husband ,Adam, welcomed us into their home and treated us like members of their family. Our group of 18 worked as a team preparing the various pats of a large meal. We made jerk chicken, beans and rice, coconut chips, fried plantain, and coconut cream tarts. When preparation was finished, group members visited freely with each other, perhaps aided by the wonderful rum punch. Soon we were all sitting around large tables enjoying the fruits of our labor. The entire experience was so goo we would consider doing it again when we are in Antigua!

We absolutely loved everything about the cooking class with Nicole. It was a wonderful mix of hands on cooking, relaxing, and meeting new people. Her home is a beautiful setting for a cooking class! We participated in the "All About Jerk" class and the meal was amazing. I am a vegetarian and they were very accommodating with jerk tofu instead of chicken for me. We were so full that we couldn't eat dinner that evening! Thank you all SO, SO much for hosting us. Nicole, you have wonderful recipes. Adam, thank you for your quick email responses. Last but not least, we LOVE Petal!

Hey! Thanks for the review and thanks for giving Petal some recognition. She helps a lot by taking things off of me that would make the class less enjoyable if I had to do the work while running the class. Petal is fantastic. Give the recipes a try at home and contact us if you have any questions. You can get us here, on Facebook under "NicolesTable.com" or via our website with the same name.

Nicole & Adam created a relaxing and educational experience in their home learning to cook Caribbean food. Their warm hospitality and stunning views made the experience even more special. I’d highly recommend this for anyone visiting Antigua who wants to experience something authentic and pick up some skills along the way.
Thanks Nicole and Adam. I’ll be sure to check out another class next time!

I highly recommend visiting Nicole's Table if you're going to be in Antigua. It's a nice way to spend some time in a tranquil location with great views, to learn, and to enjoy cooking and eating good food.

Nicole and Adam really make you feel at home when you walk into their home. When I arrived at Nicole's Table, Nicole greeted me with a big warm welcome. I felt like I was a nephew that she hadn't seen in a long time, and from that greeting alone, I knew it was going to be a great afternoon with great vibes and great food. I arrived a little early, and while Nicole was taking care of a few things, I sat with Adam on their vibesy veranda and had a nice chat about all things life.

I enjoyed the very hands-on cooking component of this experience. It feels like you're learning from and cooking with a family member that holds the family's best recipes and wants to pass the throne to you. Nicole does a great job at instilling confidence in you along the way and making sure you take enough pride in the finished product that you'll decide to make the meal again when you get back home. We made a great meal and got to enjoy it while relaxing, being in conversation, and overlooking some great Caribbean views. It's an experience you really have to feel and remember in your heart.

Nicole and her family are so fun to be with, and the food we made was absolutely delicious. We got to enjoy all of this on Nicole’s spectacular porch overlooking the island and bay. We loved every minute of this and would recommend that anyone visiting Antigua take this opportunity for a fun and unique experience on the island. Thank you, Nicole!

I had been to Antigua before but I had never tried a cooking class. A group of six from our cruise spent several hours at Nicoles home preparing a multi course meal. Her home is a beautiful place situated with a view of some of the island and the sea. Nicole directed all our chopping and blending and provided her own recipe rum and punch to round out the visit. There was more to the recipes than expected but she provided detailed handouts to take home with us. After cooking we sat back and enjoyed the food, conversation, rum, and view.

My 19 year old son and I had a week's holiday in Antigua and decided to do a Caribbean cookery course as part of that. Having read a favourable review of Nicole's Table in the Sunday Times, we went ahead and booked and we were so glad we did - we loved every minute of it!
Nicole welcomed us to her beautiful home in the hills and she was warm, friendly and very knowledgeable. Our group of 6 helped with food prep whilst sipping a delicious rum punch and we then sat outside on the porch (with stunning views) to enjoy it together. It was a wonderful day and one of the highlights of our week. Highly recommend!

Hello Usha! Thank you for your review. It was wonderful having you and your son attend our Cooking with Rum class. Both of you were hands-on through the session, which is always the most fun way to do our cooking classes. Would love to see you again and wish you all the best trying out the recipes at home.
