The Full Story

Nicole Bidun

I started this blog to share my favorite recipes and teach people more about cooking. I found that so many student-athletes and people with packed schedules haven't learned some cooking basics, or don't have time to put together fueling meals. Let's change that!


My Cooking Experience

In 2017 I competed on and won Top Chef Junior, and before then I won Chopped Junior in 2015. I grew up with a strong food culture from my family and living in NYC, and it has always been an integral part of my life. Cooking for me can be a special occasion, but now it's definitely a daily practice.  


I am a goalkeeper and I usually train 6 times a week. Balancing schoolwork and a rigid soccer schedule has taught me to manage my time and simplify my recipes
