We are pleased to introduce you to Lauren Lane, one of our newest culinary instructors at The Culinary Center of Kansas City.
Lauren left behind a corporate career to pursue her passion of teaching cooking and entertaining. She enjoys traveling and tasting all the local foods a region has to sample. She not only teaches people how to recreate her delicious recipes but also provides tips and tricks on how to entertain effortlessly in your home, and have FUN while doing it!
Italian food is Lauren’s passion but she also dedicates a lot of love to simple and delicious seasonal dishes.
She believes nothing brings friends and families together like great food – and she inspires her classes with fun, make-ahead entertaining ideas. She encourages us to slow down, enjoy life and gather around the table.

Yes, we’re sure that Granny is probably a terrific cook – and we’re not ruling her out! – but think of who you know that is both an outstanding culinarian and an excellent teacher. We’re always looking to expand our group of cooking instructors, and we’d like your input.
If you have somebody in mind, click here and tell us about that person. Or if that person is you, then by all means, introduce yourself to us! We love meeting passionate foodies who are willing to share what they know. This business was built on the premise that there are folks all around us who have something to teach.
