Hello! My name is Lorena Aguilar. I am fortunate that my job takes me all over the world and during my travels I have cooked with women from all over the world – Thailand, China, Greece, Peru, Costa Rica, and many more. This opportunity to cook with women from around the world has given me another opportunity – to couple my love of the food from other cultures with my second love cooking!
My roots are originally from Costa Rica where I started by cooking for my family and this grew to include not only family but friends and then friends of friends until LaLa’s was born.
I have catered many events – small private dinners of just 10 guests or large events with over 200 guests.
And now I have relocated to the DC area and am looking to once again launch the Traveling Cook here in the DC and the surrounding areas.
What I offer is unique and personalized catering with tailor made menus that will cater to your taste buds and those of your guests!
My cooking enables my guests to experience a culinary experience of food and spices from around the world - this is a craft I have learned by being invited into women’s kitchens to cook with and then of course to enjoy the food we have cooked.
Please note --- at this time the Traveling Cook is only catering to small events (groups of less than 40 guests) due to my personalized approach to providing my guests a tailored menu that will provide them a culinary experience from a country or region they choose.
