Hey, I'm Nikki!


I'm a Greek-American cultural-culinary seminar director, journalist and pro chef working in Crete, Greece for 22 years. My work focuses on our interrelationship with food, culture, nature, and health. In 1997, I formed Crete's Culinary Sanctuaries Educational Network “School Without Walls,” to help support residents working hard to protect and share their heritage – archaeologists, ecologists, organic farmers, heirloom seed savers, chefs, beekeepers, musicians, and many others. We organize accredited academic study tours and private educational programs for professionals. Over 3,000 students, teachers, researchers and journalists have attended our programs. CCS is an award-winning program, featured in National Geographic and many other media outlets and organizations.
