Eating well is Divine
Meet the Chef
Chef Brooke Lampert is a Cordon Bleu-trained chef with experience creating culinary masterpieces in settings ranging from luxury resorts and rustic eco lodges to private homes. She received her Culinary Arts & Sciences degree from the Scottsdale Culinary Institute then spent two years at Scottsdale’s Hyatt Gainey Ranch and three years at the Westin Keirland Resort in Scottsdale.
Brooke’s luxury resort experience exposed to her a variety of themed cuisines including, nouveau Latin, regional Southwest, fine Italian and upscale Continental. She was also hand selected by the Executive Chef to serve on the opening team that launched the entire Westin Keirland culinary experience upon its grand opening.
In between resort gigs, Brooke spent time on Fox Island, Alaska and in Silver Gate, Montana perfecting the art of preparing delicious food for a diverse clientele in a remote setting.
In 2005 Brooke left the corporate world in order to work more intimately with her clients as a personal chef and caterer. She prides herself on getting to know each client and creating the exact dining experience they seek. Brooke is well versed in accommodating special dietary needs without compromising on flavor or presentation. Brooke is especially interested in creating a complete dining experience for her clients taking into account theme, decore, plating and serving details.
Chef Brooke is owner of the Divine Plate, a catering and personal chef business.
“People always ask me what kind of food I make and that is a tricky question to answer. Yes, I cook multi-course gourmet meals. And I make hearty comfort foods. I make Asian, Italian, heart-healthy spa, Greek and Southwestern, too. Ingredients are just a starting place. Every meal is a unique opportunity to create a one-of-a-kind culinary experience based on the desires of my client.”
I have grown spoiled working with Brooke on my corporate events. She is able to visualize whatever theme we come up with and create delicious food options for them, no matter what. She was even able to make 90s food interesting and delicious for an anniversary event. Yes, bagel bites and Hot Pockets. One of her best was creating the food for a hipster-themed luncheon, where she served an assortment of desserts out of a large doll house. There is no end to her culinary skill and creativity.

I took my first weekly meal delivery from Divine Plate and Brooke and my tummy and schedule are both beyond pleased! Oh, and Brooke did our wedding... that’s where I first tasted her guacamole with pomegranate seeds and got hooked on her cooking.

“Having a personal chef for an evening was such a treat. I got to throw a fun party and didn’t have to do any work. Best of all, we were treated to a spectacular gourmet meal with all of my favorite things.”
Judy Harrison , Event Coordinator
“We hired the Divine Plate to cater our holiday office party. We provided a budget and vague food interest with some dietary restrictions thrown in and Divine Plate delivered a tour de force! Everything was incredible from the black truffle risotto and bacon wrapped pork tenderloin to the tiramisu in edible chocolate bowls! We’ve already had them back for corporate luncheons.”
