Meet Chef Nikki
Dominique Jones, affectionately known as “Chef Nikki” is an aspiring master baker and pastry chef. She began baking with her grandmother at the tender age of eight years old and fell in love. Baking has always been more of a therapeutic experience for her. She was bullied often, as a child so baking became an escape and sense of self-validation for her. She created Scratch My Batch so that she may eventually provide a place to teach young aspiring professionals technical skills of baking and also provide a safe place for those who may have experienced bullying as she did.
Chef Nikki has dedicated more of her time to teaching basic skills for baking and decorating. She chooses to partner with After School Matters programs where they offer a baking and pastry program. She herself grew up in a not so safe neighborhood so she knows what it feels like to have the feeling of wanting to escape and just be you. Nikki wants the youth she teaches to feel a sense of security when they join her. She wants them to know the classroom is a safe place for them to express their creativity without being judge. She hopes student’s leave more confident and know they are beautiful reflective.
