About
The history of rum starts in the Caribbean around the 17th century. Cooking with Rum talks about the history and influence of rum on the Caribbean, its culture and its cuisine. Various rums will be present for tasting and flavoring the foods. Since we are on Antigua, we will start with the island award winning 5-year old English Harbor rum and then move on to three other superb brands from countries such as Barbados, Guatemala, Cuba, Jamaica and Martinique. The food will introduce our guests to how various rums can be used to flavor foods whether you are using a classic dark rum or a filtered white. Take this class not just to explore new flavours, but to enjoy the experience of cooking with new friends in a West Indian home with great view of the Caribbean Sea!

Thank you Ingrid and Michael! What Ingrid left out of her response, was that she didn't just come back for the class, she and Michael also stayed at our BnB too! Thank you for both! Anyhow, we hope we get to see you for a third time someday down the line. In the mean time, happy cooking! All the best, Nicole and Adam

Wonderful !
Feb 2020
Great experience with fun, down to earth folks! Adam and Nicole (and Zoey and Petal) were just all around fun and friendly. We enjoyed cooking, learning, and laughing with our hosts, and with our fellow "chefs" from Iowa. My wife Melissa and I were celebrating our 14 year wedding anniversary, and thoroughly enjoyed spending our special time with them. As soon as we walked in the door, we felt welcomed.

The food was great, too! We certainly will repeat these receipes at home. It was nice to be able to take home recipe information. The only disappointment was that we forgot to purchase some of her secret recipe "made with love" hot sauce on the way out---as it too was excellent!

Overall, what can I say that hasn't been said in the almost 600 reviews---great food, great fun, great experience, and super nice folks!

Thanks Nicole and team for a wonderful day in Antigua! See you for sure next time we visit!

When was Cooking Ever so Relaxing?!
Feb 2020
From the beginning, reserving this outing, Nicole's husband Adam was extremely helpful with gathering information about getting a taxi to and from their home, which is up on a hill with a gorgeous view of the landscape and water. We were six in the class, and one had already taken Nicole's classes twice before, which is high recommendation in itself. After welcome juices, and with Nicole's very easygoing leadership, we measured, mixed, poured, and fried. Then while things were taken in and out of the oven, pureed, and prepared for presentation, Adam treated us to a tasting of six Caribbean rums. Our lunch was sumptuous and delicious. We ate on the huge veranda, got to know one another a little better, and enjoyed the views. We left with full bellies and print-outs of all the recipes. Both Nicole and Adam are wonderful hosts and teachers, very down to earth. High marks for every aspect of this class.

Nicole and Adam were GREAT. Again!
Feb 2020
We signed up for an excursion to Nicole's Table on our cruise ship stop in Antigua. We had been to Nicole and Adam's previously and knew we were in for a great time. Food was stupendous, their home was gorgeous, the atmosphere was so fun! If you're thinking of trying it out, don't think twice about it. Totally worth it!

*If you book on your own and need to acquire your own taxi, go to the taxi stand and ask for Francine or "Blondie." She was so friendly and helpful. She delivered us on time for the class and came back to pick us up and got us back to our ship in plenty of time. Her fare was $8/pp per way. Very fare for the distance she drove.

Hey Howard and Teressa! Thank you for stopping by again. I hope we get to see you in another two years, or perhaps sooner! Going to the taxi stand is good advice since you are much more likely to get a real taxi as opposed to anyone else. As we've said before, please contact us if you have any questions about cooking in general, or our recipes in particular. We love hearing from you and our guests through the year. All the best until we see you again! Nicole and Adam

5 adults and A TODDLER did a cooking class!
Feb 2020
We enjoyed every second of our class with Nicole. Her whole family was so warm and engaging, and we shared A LOT of laughs. We also learned a ton about cooking and RUM. We enjoyed the company of the other participants as well. And the setting of the house could not be more perfect! While the baby slept for much of the class (no reflection on Nicole and Adams' presentations!) she was welcomed without reservation. It was, for us, a perfect day in Antigua, and we highly recommend it!

Hello Nancy! Thank you visiting us with your family and for the review and recommendation. Both are very much appreciated! Your little one reminded us so much of our oldest. We took her everywhere and she just settled in like an old soul. You can bring her by anytime. Please give the recipes a try at home. If you get stuck, just reach us via our NicolesTable.com website or on Facebook under the same name. Wishing you the best until we see you again... Nicole and Adam #activitiesantigua #antiguatours

Awesome experience. Best hands on cooking class1
Dec 2019
My husband and I , with 2 friends, took this class on our Christmas Cruise with Regent. They offered excursion. It was awesome. Our class with Nicole was Cooking with Rum and we also had a Rum tasting with Adam. The whole experience was great. It’s a hands on cooking class. We enjoyed so much we are taking another class on our Feb 20 Caribbean to Amazon Cruise on the Viking Sea that is Coordinating Curries class - if we can get a few more folks to sign up. It’s not on Vikings Excursion list but you can sign up online. Check out their website nicolestable.com. You won’t be discouraged.

Wonderful Experience on Antigua
Jan 2020
We had the most wonderful day at Nicole's Table. She was welcoming and brought everyone in, whether they were experienced or beginners. She shared her knowledge, her home, and the best meal we had on the island. We immediately went home and made the jerk chicken for our friends. It was one of the top excursions we've ever had. I can't say enough positive things about Nicole's Table in Antigua! Thank you, Nicole.

We love hearing that first time guests will become repeats. The day I am writing this response is just such a day. We have 7 guests of a total of 14 who are all repeats. The start of the class was nothing but fun playing catch and talking about the previous cooking class. Looking forward to seeing you again! Nicole and Adam

True Caribbean Hospitality - DELICIOUS CUISINE
Jan 2020
I live and work in Antigua and took my team to Nicole's Table as a team building retreat. I HIGHLY recommend this activity, we met a group of Canadians visiting the island, we all got to know each other, learned about the versatility of using rum as an ingredient in cooking. We were able to let loose and really enjoy the experience while preparing a lovely meal and sitting down family style to share our gastronomic creation. The rum punch was awesome, the meal was delicious - all in all a lovely afternoon, definitely not the cliché touristy experience, and a great way to get to know people, learn about the real Caribbean and make new friends. Highly recommend.

Thank you for the great review and recommendation Marita! We like one part of your review in particular. You say that our cooking tour is a "great way to get to know people, learn about the real Caribbean and make new friends." This is a big part of why we do what we do. Food brings people together. People show up as strangers and always leave with new friends. And, along the way, they get to learn about how we live here in the Caribbean. This makes our work worthwhile and enjoyable to us. Anyhow, thank you for the review and hope to see again! Nicole and Adam
