Nina is a senior at Green Hope High School, and plans on attending the University of Georgia in the Fall. She has been cooking and baking with both her mom and grandmother for as long as she can remember, especially around the holidays, but she really became passionate about food two years ago. That was when her mom went back to work, so the responsibility of making dinner fell on her! Although she originally thought of it as a chore, she soon fell in love with the sights, sounds and smells that come along with cooking. Not only does she love making food, she loves trying it too! Traveling and trying new types of foods from different places is one of her favorite things to do, especially when it's something she’s never tried before. Nina’s favorite thing about working at Flour Power is getting to introduce new ingredients and recipes to the kids, just like her mom did with her. Favorite Ingredient: Butterscotch. Favorite Food to Make: Fried Rice. Favorite Dessert: Lava Cakes. Favorite Kitchen Scent: Chocolate Chip Cookies baking. Favorite Food Network Chef: Guy Fieri.
