Nicole Emson was born in Texas and was during her childhood called “StikkiNikki” on account of her long, skinny legs. After fleeing her redneck childhood town she traveled the world, working mainly as a pastry chef. Her professional experience includes various pastry chef gigs in luxury hotels and resorts in the Caribbean and the US, private chef on the French Riviera, an entrepreneur running her own business making wedding cakes, a handmade pasta maker in Italy, and an unpaid gelato maker in Italy. She came to Sweden in 2007.
Nikki has always been very particular with what she eats herself and her family, and what she cooks for others. According to her, too many worry too much about profit levels, and glitzy design, and not enough about personal service, product quality and being friendly. Her dream is to have a fun business that can support a decent lifestyle for her family, that is fun to work with and that she can be proud of. Not a moneymachine that consumes her lifestyle.
