Nina St Tropez

Nina St Tropez

Bringing to life another side of St Tropez and the legendary Côte d’Azur, Nina shows us a place where cooking has brought people together for generations and creates recipes inspired by locals, places and stories from her childhood here. She explores the real St Tropez and the surrounding area through its secret, scenic walks, eccentric bric-a-brac markets, vineyards and bustling communities of artists and fishermen.

Oozing with charm and filled with classic French recipes for gourmet breakfasts, picnics, lunchtime snacks and dinner parties to impress, NINA ST TROPEZ represents family cooking from across the south of France – with that added splash of St Tropez elegance and glamour that’s intrigued people for decades.

Nina Parker has a passion for food. After university, she joined the team at L’Anima, London as a commis chef and fell in love with their style of cooking that uses fresh Italian ingredients with a rustic touch. She has spent time in some fantastic kitchens: from The Dorchester for Alain Ducasse, Tom Aikens, The Ledbury, to the unrivalled Senequier Bakery in St Tropez. Whilst working as chef for Bocca di Lupo’s Gelupo in Soho, they won TIME OUT’s best gelateria’.

In 2012 she launched her own catering company NINA, dedicated to bringing a taste of her childhood to the heart of London and beyond.

FOOD AND TRAVEL
Book of the Week You're thinking Bardot, sun, short shorts, Picasso and pastis. The UK-based chef Nina Parker, on the other hand, is thinking... food: home-made ratatouille, bouillabaisse, croissants and ice cream, all of which appear in this, her first cookbook. Parker spends every summer in St Trop, thinking up delicious recipes and living an annoyingly enviable life - catching fish, buying fresh veg in the market, swimming in the Med and luggins plates of meringue through the streets.

Many a summer spent holidaying on the Cote d'Azur provided the inspiration for chef and caterer Nina Parker's debut recipe book. This gorgeous black magic cake combines a rich chocolate sponge, blueberry compote and vanilla-soaked figs. Yum!
