Lauren Cummings began working in restaurants in the Washington, DC area at age 14. She was thrilled to meet Chef Rachael Ray during her senior year of high school, then to meet Chef Emeril Lagasse just after graduation. After earning her BA from The University of Maryland, College Park, Lauren moved to Lima, Peru, where she learned Spanish and worked as a bartender. Lauren returned to the USA to serve in social services; but soon realized her passion was still in the kitchen.
In 2017 she began working with several personal chefs and top caterers in the Washington, DC area while studying Culinary Arts and Management at The Art Institute of Washington. As a first year student, Lauren won the inaugural Art Institute Grand Chef Challenge, a Chopped-style competition.
