Hi, I’m Lauren.
As a home cook, I pretty much shop and cook daily on the Upper West Side of Manhattan, where the variety of foods take me near and far. The kitchen is my most favorite room in the house. Cooking is a lost art because of our busy lives, and spending time in the kitchen connects me with my family and what they’re eating. Lauren’s Plate is about the home-cooked family meal where flavor and healthy easy cooking come together with recipes, food ideas and all things related to the plate.
This idea of flavorful food at home grew out of eating at multi-starred restaurants, pastry school, cooking classes in France and Italy and growing up in a family that owned a candy store in Brooklyn, where egg creams ruled the day.
Lauren’s Plate is for you to feel confident in the kitchen and have fun. Follow me to the flame!
