Laura Lavadour

I found my passion for cooking at the ripe age of 8 years old when I decided to whip up a dinner of Chicken Cordon Bleu for my family. My love for culinary arts has remained a constant in my life ever since. I spent the majority of my 20s and 30s working in restaurants, with both front and back of the house positions, leaving the industry briefly to experiment with techy jobs and to start a family. Now I live with my husband, daughter and son in a small house in Seattle, with a big garden, and am about to welcome my third child. We cook good things every day, with joy and passion. It is who I am and all I know how to do. Every day is another recipe.
