Meet the Team

Chef Lucy Cortes-Castaneda, Red Door Lakeland

Spending much of her childhood in sunny California, Chef Lucy’s family moved to Lakeland in 2008 where she developed a love of the culinary arts through time spent in the kitchen with her father. Her natural curiosity and inquisitive nature led her to New York City where she sharpened her skills and expanded her knowledge through everything from farmer’s markets to mid-town kitchens. She completed her formal training at the Institute of Culinary Education in NYC, and went on to work in prestigious restaurants in Brooklyn, Times Square, and beyond - including Lillies and Applewood. Lucy returned to Lakeland in January 2020 and brought her spunk and skills with her to Red Door. 

We’re grateful she found her way here, masterfully sharing her spark and culinary creativity with us through seasonal menus and monthly wine dinners. If you haven’t yet met her or experienced her mastery of creating diverse and innovative menus, you definitely should. She possesses the edge of a New Yorker, an artist's creativity, and a true chef's culinary skills. Chef Lucy currently holds the title of Top Chef of Polk County for 2022, and we’re all looking forward to a great 2023 competition.
