Hello, I'm Nina! I have a passion for cooking, and spend a lot of my free time hosting dinner parties for friends and trying out new dishes. In recent years, my love for cooking has developed into a dream of opening my own restaurant in a few years' time, together with my partner who is also a chef.

But until then, I'm very excited that I'm now able to serve my food to you through Housebites, and really happy that I can now share my passion for good, freshly prepared food with more fellow foodies.

My favourite dishes are mostly influenced by French, Spanish and Italian cuisines, but also by my German heritage and my partner's Serbian roots. I think it makes for an interesting mix - and I hope you will enjoy my menu!

The driver left the food at the wrong address - though our name and address was clearly written on a label on the package - and had to go back for it (after making another delivery) and then bring it to us. It arrived 20 mins after the time slot (and several phone calls from the cook.) We re-heated the food. - Frances, N6

Another great meal, with the inclusion of a free taster...Nina's new rabbit rillettes. Best rabbit I've ever tasted! Delicious! - Douglas, N22

Real food, no added 'flavourings' like the sugar that you find in standard takeaways. Everything was good and we particularly enjoyed the beetroot and broad bean salad, duck confit (though not sure we found the lentil beetroot salad - did we get it confused with the other?) and the lemon tart - though in fact everything found favour. Our only thought was that as it gets colder it would be good to have insulated delivery boxes like you get for pizzas, to make sure everything stays hot. - Kate, N19

Very tasty confit of duck and lentil/beetroot salad. Potatoes delicious but would have been better to have had more of them, as not really enough. Puddings both very yummy. Service very good. - Sian, N4

Sorry Nina. Food was a little on the cool side once it arrived. Also the pork belly was a bit chewy and overcooked, so it didn't get finished. Also there was too small a portion of potatoes compared with the duck, so by the end of the meal, I was just eating duck. The positives were the crab cakes, the mash and the cabbage which were all yummy. - Peter, N19

Tasty and good portions. - Marcelo, N19

All the food was lovely and so flavourful The crab cakes were beautifully spiced and it had a lovely chilli sauce The duck was very rich but off set by a really light and delicate lentil salad I would definetly order from this chef again! - Cordelia, N10

The tagine was superb; excellent quality meat and delicious flavours. The desserts are little works of art! Very nice meal indeed. - Louise, N4

We ordered from Nina on Saturday night and it's worth mentioning how easy the ordering and payment process was. Our order also arrived extremely promptly without any of the usual take-away 20 minute promise turning into 60 ... So, our food. The crab cakes were delicious, plenty of chunky crab meat and perfect seasoning and the sweet chilli sauce accompanied the flavouring really well. The lamb tagine was incredible, the lamb was so tender it fell apart and the sauce was really distinctive, you could taste every flavour. The accompanying cous-cous really complimented the tagine, adding a mellow, fruity flavour but with a zesty after-taste - yum! Nina also included a complimentary brownie in our order, a lovely touch and it was the perfect end to our meal. Overall, this was a delicious, filling meal. Nina is a really talented chef and we will definitely be ordering from her again! - Kari, N8

My superfood salad was absolutely delicious and fresh; the flavors were great and I the pomegranate seeds, raisins, and almonds were tasty. I loved the blackberry bakewell and the heavy creme to put on it was delicious. The squash and blue cheese tart was yummy and not too salty. - Lauren, N8

Another fabulous meal, thank you guys. On previous feedback I had requested more vegetable sides or salad sides so I was really pleased to see a side order of vegetables on offer. Nina the lamb tagine and the couscous were delicious, as were the crab cakes, as were the duck dumplings. My kids loved the pulled pork in a bun, the bun was lovely and wholesome and I loved that it came with a good portion of healthy pickles, shredded cabbage and beetroot. This doesn't really feel like takeaway food, it's a much healthier option than regular takeouts with the big bonus that everything is delicious. I wish I could order every night! - Tina, N10

Outstanding! I turned up slightly early so had the added bonus of seeing everything being finished off and packaged up by the lovely Nina. It's hard to single anything out as it was all delicious but the rabbit rillettes were a definite hit and the confit of duck and pork were both tasty and perfectly cooked. All the accompaniments were excellent, especially the lentils and beetroot, something I had never tried together before. Generous portions too and we loved the little cookies. Will definitely order again. Thank you! - Julie, N16
