TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) — A Lafayette native is making the trip to Mercedes Benz Stadium in Atlanta, for Super Bowl 53. It's not the first time Lauren Reed is heading to the game of all games. Reed is the chef at the farm at Prophetstown.

One of the big attractions at the farm is it's monthly catered dinners - all prepared Reed. Her cooking has gotten attention from big names across the country, but she's proud to say her trip to the Super Bowl all started at a party right here in Indiana.

"I was actually at a 4th of July party in Indianapolis and I was a guest but I kind of got roped into cooking," said Reed. 

A few weeks later she got a call from the Indianapolis company Bullzye Events.

"They said hey we are going to be doing these Colts tailgates, we wanted to know if you were interested in working with us."

After nearly two years of perfecting her craft at Colts tailgates, she's ready for her next adventure. As the Patriots and the Rams prepare for the Super Bowl, Reed is thinking about kind of food she will make for the thousands of fans heading to Atlanta.

"My dinners here are typically for 32 people, 5-course meal, and the Superbowl tailgate will probably be about 3,000 people," she said. 

Reed said while cooking at the Super Bowl is a whole different ball game, she isn't worried because she knows the best team is on her side. She was at Super Bowl 52 last year.

"I get a lot of support from the people in the Lafayette area, I just want to be a better chef, a better person," said Reed. 

If you can't make it to the super bowl to try Reed's cooking, you can taste it at Prophetstown instead. The farm recently released it's 2019 menu.

Don't forget, you can watch the Super Bowl on CBS on February 3rd.
