Meet Chef Ellie Lavender!


My name is Ellie Lavender. I’m a vegan Mediterranean personal chef, culinary instructor and artisan chocolatier.

My journey as a self-taught vegan Mediterranean chef started at age 7 with my decision to become a vegetarian. Having asked my mom to prepare vegetarian foods, her reply was: “It’s time for you to learn how to cook so that you can make any kind of food you want”. I started cooking and found absolute joy in experimenting with the bounty of fresh fruits, vegetables and herbs (lavender always being my favorite) from our organic garden. This early encounter with the joy of cooking led me to create Lavender Cuisine, because cooking truly is my greatest passion!

I offer the following culinary services throughout Santa Cruz County and the South Bay:

Personal chef Services featuring organic, seasonal, local and sustainable Vegetarian-Vegan Mediterranean gourmet cuisine prepared in your kitchen and tailored to your personal taste. 
Vegan/Vegetarian Mediterranean Catering for all occasions (up to 50 people).

Private In-Home Cooking Classes: If you would like to host a Vegan/Vegetarian Mediterranean Cooking (4-course meal: appetizer, entrĂ©e, 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, or a group of friends, through a fun day of cooking right in your very own kitchen. The class (4 hours) fee is $150.00 p/p and tailored to your own desire! Plus, you’ll be rewarded in two ways: your attendance will be free and I'll throw in a lovely bottle of wine.

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.

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. Leave it to me to custom design a menu to accommodate your goals and budget. Then, I’ll run an experiential class your team will fondly remember for years to come! 
I look forward to bringing you the joy of Vegan/Vegetarian Mediterranean cuisine

Contact me today to arrange for a 30-minute complimentary phone consultation to take the first step.
