My name is Lauren Rose and I am passionate
about all things food and wine.
I spend my days working as a private chef, sommelier, and cheesemonger in Northern California. I specialize in seasonal, Mediterranean faire with my own millennial twist. Having worked in the wine industry for the last five years as an Italian wine importer, sommelier, and educator, I have learned that wine is subjective. I believe every meal should be celebrated and wine should be approachable. I create dishes and wine pairings my way, which isn't always by the book.
“A truly amazing chef!”
"It was a warm evening in Sacramento, and we were greeted with an Aperol spritz. Appetizers consisted of community pita bread, hummus, baba ghanoush, and a Lebanese empanada. Dinner was served family style: Juicy, delicious lamb and beef kefta, lentil and rice, and roasted veggies. My stomach, heart, and spirit were happy and full by the end of the night."
“I've never tasted food so good!”
"Where do I begin? The beautiful venue overlooking AT&T Ballpark in San Francisco? The fun people I met from Ireland, Costa Rica, and Australia? The warm, inviting hostess? Or the to-die-for food she served? I can't decide which dish was my favorite: The Lebanese food or the stuffed onions. All I know is I have never tasted food so good! I cannot wait for the next event!"
"Lauren's food was incredible. Each dish was as complex and flavorful as the last. I truly felt as though I was transported to the Middle East. Lauren is an incredible chef and hostess, and I cannot wait for her next event!"
