Nikki’s vegetarian & vegan cuisine

Our home-cooked food is made with love from our own potager whenever possible and is a fusion of vegetarian & vegan world cuisine. Nikki has published 2 recipe books, available to buy signed & dedicated when you’re here or online from Amazon (“Under The Lime Tree.cook!” and “Under The Lime Tree.cook 2!”). There is an option to cook your own supper under Nikki’s guidance in a fun afternoon of tips & tricks & cooking know-how.
