Auditions: LaLa's Slightly Sicilian

Lauren Anile's food is simple, delicious, and inspired from the kitchen of her "nona," her Sicilian grandmother who taught her to cook.

Come support Lauren by trying her food and giving feedback. If this is a success, she could be one of a few concepts to pop up for 3 months next door at the Taste Test Bar & Restaurant and potentially end up in a permanent storefront in downtown York.

*Arrive anytime within the time slots listed*

Chef Lauren Anile

I grew up in the small town of Red Lion, PA, with my father owning a pizza shop/restaurant in York and then in Boiling Springs, so all I knew was food. I would enjoy watching my nona cook at home and then work in the family restaurant with my father. My nona, grandmother in Sicilian, would wake up early just to get the pasta sauce started for dinner that day. There were times she spent the whole day doing nothing but cook. My inspiration for wanting to share this type of simple but delicious food with others came from learning and helping her and also getting to eat what was prepared.
