My name is Ellie Lavender and I’m a vegan Mediterranean personal chef, culinary instructor and artisan chocolatier. My journey to the creation of Lavender Design + Cuisine began in 2011. That was when decided to leave high tech sales after a 20-year career and pursue my lifelong dream. Since then, it has been an amazing and rewarding experience. I'm immeasurably grateful to be able to do what I love thanks to my wonderful clients and students. They are the center of my work and a great inspiration.
I offer the following culinary services throughout Santa Cruz County and the South Bay:
v Personal Chef Services featuring the preparation of organic, seasonal, local and sustainable Vegan/Vegetarian Mediterranean gourmet cuisine. I will create delicious meals tailored to your personal taste right in your kitchen.
v Vegan/Vegetarian Mediterranean Catering for all occasions (up to 50 people).
v Private In-Home Cooking Classes: If you would like to host a Vegan/Vegetarian Mediterranean Cooking (4-course meal: appetizer, entrée, salad and dessert, plus wine) and Wine Pairing Class in your home (minimum 5 people, maximum 10), I'll come to your home to guide you and your group, through a fun day of cooking right in your very own kitchen. The 4-hour class fee is $150.00 p/p and includes a bottle of wine! As the host, you’ll be rewarded in two ways: your attendance will be free and I'll throw in a lovely bottle of wine.
v Chocolate Making Event for birthday parties for children 10 years and up (minimum 5 children, maximum 10). In this very hands-on event at your venue, children will make chocolate arts, which are organic, vegan and sugar free. They’ll get to try their chocolate arts and even gift wrap some of their lovely handmade creations in exquisite packaging provided by me. Parties start at just $175.00 for 5 children (each additional child is $35), which includes everything necessary to have a super fun time that is ideal for photo and video memories.
v Culinary Team Building-Corporate Cooking Classes: Hands-on interactive culinary team building classes are a fun and effective way to create employee bonding experiences. The classes encourage teamwork, enhance communication, and foster camaraderie all in a delightful and delicious environment. I will custom design a menu to accommodate your goals and budget.
Plus, all registered students in my culinary classes will receive a one-time 10% discount offer on cooking, baking items and all items available in the Toque Blanche store located in downtown Santa Cruz and on their website. The discount code will be provided in each class.
I look forward to bringing you the joy of Vegan/Vegetarian Mediterranean cuisine! Please contact me to arrange for a 30-minute phone consultation to take the first step.
