Meet Nikki

I am a chef, tv host, cookbook author, blogger, recipe developer, professional voice over artist and terrace gardener living with my family in NYC. I cook in a way I call "Meat on the Side" which focuses on veggies, making them unique and the star of the plate.

My Cookbook

Meat on the Side contains over 100 Meat On The Side meals, which means that these recipes will not have more than 4oz of meat and the vegetable will always be the star of the plate. Meat on the Side is all about vegetable-focused dishes that bend and twist veggies in unique ways to create meals that will make even the pickiest of eaters love their veggies.
