Attraction details
Recommended length of visit: More than 3 hours
Owner description: Nicole's Table offers Caribbean cookery classes that twist local flavors with outside influences. It includes such titles as Cooking with Rum, Coordinating Curries, From the Sea, and All About Jerk although we do offer customized classes upon request. Classes are small, hands-on or laid back... your choice. They last 3-4 hours and are offered in our local eco-friendly Caribbean home which is full of Caribbean stories, local foods and flavours. Come visit our home in Antigua to learn how to cook with a Caribbean flair. Eat, drink, have fun and meet new friends while you enjoy a breathless view of the Caribbean Sea.

My partner Matt surprised me with a cooking class at Nicole's Table. We pulled up and was welcomed into Nicole & Adam's beautiful home, we then cooked the most amazing Jerk Chicken, Coconut Rice, coconut chips and Plantain Chips (which are to die for) and loads more with Nicole and Connie. I cannot recommend doing this class enough, a really enjoyable experience!! Next time we are in Antigua I think we will be trying the cooking with rum class
Thank you Nicole & Adam for inviting us into your home. And Thank you Nicole and Connie for teaching me the impossible of how to cook, I cannot wait to start cooking at home X

Thank Minstrels7

A big fat "You're welcome!" Matt and Leah! It was wonderful having you visit and cook up a great lunch for all of us. You two were good students and fit in well with a laid back West Indian style rather quickly. Would love to some day visit your pub in England... perhaps some day. And, Matt, we hope your Mom liked the recipes!

All the best,

Nicole, Adam and Connie

We were there for the Jerk cooking class. We did hands on food prep and followed really relatively simple recipes. Items were fresh and received good cooking tips. We enjoyed a lovely meal in their beutiful home on the top of a mountain that has ocean views on both sides. Highly recommend this experience!!

Booked the jerk class. It ended up being just the two of us. What a delight. Nicole makes you feel so welcome into her kitchen. We started immediately cooking the food for our lunch. Jerk chicken, beans and rice, plantains with a delightful dipping sauce and coconut custard tart! Excellent and we took the recipes home. It was a great local experience . Connie and Nicole just make you feel at home. If you prefer the non traditional tourist experience this is the place to go

If you're looking for something to do outside of the usual tourist spots on Antigua then look no further!
My wife and I completed the cooking with rum course with Nicole whilst on honeymoon and it was great. We learnt plenty of recipes that we are desperate to try again at home: highly addictive plantain and coconut chips, delicious sweet potato soup with a rum float, rice and peas and an incredible rum cake (with enough left to feed our taxi driver, who seemed to love it!), plus more.
It is a hands on cooking course, with lots of tasting (have a small breakfast beforehand, if anything). Nicole is very knowledgeable about all things Caribbean and cooking with rum comes with a rum tasting with Nicole's husband Adam, which feels like you have been invited around to raid his impressive collection whilst he talks a bit about the history rum and the different variations (recommended if you're a bourbon drinker, as he's keen to convert you). There's also plenty of rum punch available if you want it, so ideally don't drive...
We were the only two on the course that day, and it felt like we were cooking and eating with friends at their house, in a very impressive setting on Nicole and Adam's terrace high above the Caribbean.
Overall a great time to spend an early afternoon, highly recommended.

We had a wonderful experience at Nicole's Table. Nicole and her husband welcomed us warmly into their beautiful home and we helped prepare a delicious 3 course meal. Would highly recommend doing this when in Antigua for a cookery class with a difference. Nicole was patient and funny and explained the preparation process well. Connie was a wonderful help and cooked the most delicious plantain chips. We had great discussions and ate amazing food. What more could you ask for.
