About Moi

Currently: writer, editor, cook, (former wedding cake) (and often vegan/gluten-free) baker, runner, and resident of Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

Formerly: of 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.
