BIO: Lauren is an internationally known cooking and baking instructor, offering non-vocational (hands-on and demonstration) cooking and baking classes to men, women and teenagers. Classes are given in Lauren’s home-based cooking school and in various culinary facilities throughout the US. These classes also focus on cross-cultural cooking, teaching American cuisine to different nationalities and demographic groups, including male and female inmates on Rikers Island.
President and Founder of Hands-On-Food, Inc. a not-for-profit organization, devoted to helping people of different demographic groups to live a healthier, more fulfilling and more productive life. The underlying philosophy uses the wholesome art of cooking as the catalyst for positive change. One group H.O.F. has been dedicated to helping is the adolescent female inmates on Rikers Island, where 10 years ago, H.O.F built a teaching kitchen located in the high school facility within this correctional institution. For an entire decade, Lauren partnered with the Board of Education of New York and would guest teach monthly cooking classes and supply the tools and ingredients needed to enable the program, which provided two, back to back cooking classes each day, to happen. Though the building for the high school as recently changed and the program, which is now funded by the Board of Education, the program on Rikers, started by Lauren and H.O.F, is still going strong. This past February, Lauren created a new culinary/self-mastery program at The Brooklyn Residential Center, in Brooklyn, NY, a residence where female juvenile delinquents (age 13 to 18) have been remanded for 3 months to 1 year. After gathering many best-quality tools, cookware and appliances, she began teaching weekly cooking/baking classes and handed out her first certificates of completion to these students, in June 2010. In addition to creating and helping to subsidize the daily cooking program located in the prison, H.O.F. has provided preventative (educational) programs for young men and women recently released from Rikers, as well as programs for lower-income districts in and around the New York area. These programs focus on teaching parents and kid’s ways to use the kitchen as a place, and cooking as an easily accessible “at-home” activity, to foster a consistent source of physical fortification and emotional closeness within a family. She was the radio host of an hour long, “live” weekly talk-show “Food, Family & Home “Matters,” with Lauren Groveman.
