Welcome to Olympian Kitchen, created by Olympic silver medallist, Nicola Fairbrother.

Olympian Kitchen is a newsletter run by me, Nicola Fairbrother. I’m an Olympian, a chef and I’m fascinated about how what we eat can make us fitter and healthier.

My mission is to help you take care of your body and eat nutritious, delicious food. By improving what we put in, we improve what we get out.

Look forward to recipes with a Mediterranean, Spanish touch. Recipes that you can read quickly, and don’t take too much time to make.

Each edition, I’ll also walk through a simple culinary skill. By understanding the whys and how’s you gain confidence cooking.

So, would you like to eat healthier?
