About Moi

I’m Nicole Spiridakis, a writer, editor, cook, (erstwhile wedding cake) (and often vegan/gluten-free) baker, and runner. I currently split my time between Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, and Northern California with my husband and little daughter Sierra.

I previously lived in Casablanca, Morocco, and San Francisco, Calif., where I did much of the same.

I’ve written about food — as well as life in a tiny apartment and the occasional travel piece — for various publications; clips are available on my writing site at nicolespiridakis.com. My first cookbook, Flourless. Recipes for Naturally Gluten-Free Desserts, was published by Chronicle Books in August 2014.

You can reach me at cucinanicolinaATgmailDOTcom, become a fan of cucinanicolina on Facebook, see my photos on Instagram, or follow me on twitter at twitter.com/cucinanicolina. More of my writing work is available on my journalism website.

Each Wednesday I post snapshots of my daily life in and out of the kitchen for Wordless Wednesday. For several years I documented my weekly Sunday dinners, and shared a sweet treat each week in a series titled The Tuesday Treat. (Click the links to see more in each category.)
