About Chef Laura

Laura Rodriguez currently works full time as personal chef to a prominent country music artist and his family/staff in Nashville, Tennessee.


Laura learned to cook when she lived in Italy. She has traveled to dozens of countries exploring their native cuisines and mastered replicating her favorites at home. She started as a dish washer in a cooking school and went on to work in restaurants in Chicago before her entrepreneurial spirit drove her to start a catering company (Crème Catering) in 2012. 

She and her family moved to Tennessee in 2014 to start an organic farm. Her love for farm-to-table cuisine blossomed then and continues to grow as she connects with local farmers and artisans in her community today. 

She has taught hundreds of cooking classes for Whole Foods, The Nashville Farmers' Market, Nashville Community Education Commission, Gilda's Club, and The Kitchen Nashville and has written hundreds of recipes for The Heimerdinger Foundation, Edible Nashville, Meaningfull Living, and other publications.
