Gold: Rose De La Cruz – Rose the Chef


In her mid-50s, Rose De La Cruz has risen to the top as Pueblo’s favorite chef and caterer. After becoming widowed, she enrolled in culinary classes a few years ago, and now is one of the most sought chefs in town. De La Cruz can prepare delicious meals for any family gatherings, special events or office parties. Though De La Cruz specializes in homemade Mexican food, she also is knowledgeable about preparing menu items for special diets including diabetics. Serving fresh food straight from her home kitchen has become De La Cruz’s hobby and passion.
