Master, Savor, Celebrate, Nourish!
Hi! I'm Chef Laura.
I am a proud Italian/American and the chef/owner of Bonicelli Cooking Club. I am known for my love of local, organic, and well-sourced food, as well as my expertise in navigating dietary preferences and issues. Between my meal delivery and catering business and my restaurant, I have over 15 years of professional cooking experience, and a life time as an avid home cook. I have written thousands of recipes.
In 2018, I founded Bonicelli Cooking Club. I bring professional cooking techniques and knowledge, great recipes, and inspiration to home cooks and food lovers everywhere.
I love to cook and I want you to love it too! I am committed to inspiring and spreading the art of cooking and the value of healthy eating.

How To Run A Sustainable Kitchen
What do our students say?
Last week I realized that I am using almost exclusively Chef Laura Bonicelli recipes! Why? Because I can always trust that what I serve will be delicious. Laura tests her recipes, so I do not have to. I recommend the club to everyone who wants to serve delicious, healthy food, and improve their knowledge and techniques. Thanks, Chef Laura!
