Masters in Nutrition, Executive Chef & Owner of Private Chef & Catering Company
Hi, I'm Lauren! I am the chef & owner of agoodegg | private chef & catering in Denver. My husband and I started agoodegg last year, after moving to Denver from NYC. In New York, I ran a successful catering company and received my Masters in Nutrition and Integrative Health. I have an extensive background in cooking many different types of cuisines and specialize in accommodating dietary restrictions/preferences such as; gluten free, vegan, dairy free, paleo & keto, nut free. I currently work as a freelance private chef in Denver and Aspen, produce and execute full service catered events, and recently started doing cooking classes and nutritional consults.
For me, cooking is...
Both of my parents are chefs and without knowing it, my passion for food has been growing since I was just a little egg.
I learned to cook at...
home, first. I continue to learn everyday though, it's an ever evolving trade.
A role model in the kitchen is...
Either my Dad (cheesy but true), or my mentor Felipe Donnelly, chef & owner of Colonia Verde in Brooklyn.
A cooking secret...
Just go with it. Don't take yourself too seriously, ego will get in the way of your creativity every. time.
As a Private Chef, I can offer you:
Simply tell me what you're craving! I would love to create the perfect menu for your special occasion in Denver.
I can do weddings, birthdays and corporate events in Denver. You name it!
Because "sharing is caring". I would be happy to teach you all sorts of techniques and recipes in Denver.

Chef Lauren's reviews
Our experience with Chef Lauren was outstanding!! All our guests couldn't stop raving about the five course meal she put together. Truly, every single dish seemed outshine the one before. She was very easy to work with, friendly and dependable. Can't recommend her enough!! We will be booking again with our new friend, Chef Lauren!

Lauren was incredibly punctual, flexible, communicative, and professional. During the entire process she was easy to get a hold of and was completely understanding when we shifted the time of dinner. She was thoughtful in her preparations and went out of her way to appropriately mingle with the party. The food was excellent. Would recommend.
