Host: Nicole Robinson Bio
Nicole’s food adventures started at a young age with Peanut butter and fluff sandwiches for her school lunches. Her love of food was born that year. However, her love of the more palatable food grew over the years working in pubs, family style restaurants and a Michelin Star European Restaurant.
Many Saturdays and Sundays were spent with friends and families discovering new restaurants or the little special hole in the walls that make the most fantastic food and inspire memorable dinner conversations.
Finally, Nicole decided to merge her experience in the Food Industry and joined the Nova Scotia Community College in 2003, as a faculty member in the Tourism Management Program where once again her close relationship with the Culinary Department has allowed for some amazing tasting experiences.
