About Me

Rebecca Lavender

Chef and Owner

Hey Y'all! Thanks for taking interest in my website. I am a personal chef, caterer, and freelance bartender located in Colorado Springs, CO serving Colorado, Texas, Oklahoma, and Kansas (and more by request!). All my life I have loved to cook, and in 2011 I was able to get a glimpse of my dream to be a chef while studying Food Service Administration and Nutrition at Central Michigan University. I then proceeded to go on to culinary school at the Great Lakes Culinary Institute in Traverse City, MI. I had so much fun being able to cook everyday between school and my part time job. I worked in a wide variety of commercial kitchens from 2012 to 2018, when I switched to bartending to have the chance to interact more with customers and learn a bit about food and beverage pairings. I started Chef in Boots, LLC in 2016 when I moved to Colorado. I am licensed and insured and can work from my commercial kitchen, your home, or any venue with a kitchen. I would love to help you with all things culinary and beverage in any way that I can. Contact me today to get a free quote!
