NIKKI DINKI was the epitome of a picky eater as a young girl, but as an adult she was on a mission to expand her palate. She set out to learn how to cook, and discovered her true passion in life was for cooking and creating delicious and healthy meals. Determined to share her talent for making vegetables the star of the plate, Nikki launched her website and online cooking show entitled, “Nikki Dinki Cooking,” where she showcases her semi-vegetarian lifestyle.
In 2013, Nikki’s unique approach to food led her to Food Network where she became the breakout star and fan favorite of "Food Network Star"Season 9. She was the co-host of "Junk Food Flip"on Cooking Channel, in which she re-makes comfort food with her healthy spin along with co-host Bobby Deen.Her first cookbook, Meat On The Side, was released in June 2016.
