West Lafayette, Ind. (WLFI) - A Hoosier is headed to the Super Bowl -- to cook!
Lauren Reed is currently the Events and Education Coordinator at the Farm at Prophetstown. She also works as the farm's chef.
Reed started out cooking at the VIP tailgates for the Indianapolis Colts through Bullseye Event Group.
After this season, Bullseye selected her to be an assistant chef for the 2018 Super Bowl. She will be cooking alongside celebrity chefs, such as Guy Fieri, and serving active NFL Players and celebrities at the event.
Reed said cooking is something that she's been doing forever and she loves how food connects people.
"Food is amazing. Food is a social thing. It's a family thing. It brings people together and it gets people really excited," Reed said.
Reed said it costs $750 per person to attend the VIP tailgate at this year's Super Bowl.
