About Nigel T. Hinckson
Chef Nigel is the Executive Chef and President of Chef Nigel Inc.
Nigel’s passion for food and cooking is what lead him into the culinary field. He attended The Art Institute of New York (formally known as the New York Restaurant School) graduating at the top of his class with a degree in culinary art.
Chef Nigel started his culinary career at the Hilton Hotel where he worked in the banquet kitchen cooking for weddings and other banquet functions. It was at the Hilton, while working under award-winning chefs such as Chef Stefano Sena, Chef Sonny Soemarsono and Chef Neal Kariyakarawana, that he perfected his culinary techniques.
Learning and bettering his cooking skills for foods from a wide array of cultures (including, but certainly not limited to) Italian, Asian, Caribbean, Cajun and Latin, became his passion, and he is now implementing the results of his studying and experimentation, with amazing results. If you can name it, Chef Nigel can cook it. Chef Nigel also worked at the New York Palace Hotel and the Omni Resort (ChampionsGate, FL) under award winning Executive Chef Bernard Mueller. He has now brought back his talents and offers catering in New York City!
