Meet Chef Erin Simone
Chef Erin Simone will never forget the day she signed up for culinary school. She was watching someone sing on TV so beautifully, essentially giving it everything they had. And it was in that moment she knew she could’t go another day denying her true passion in life-cooking. Truly, it was watching someone else live out their dream that pushed Chef Erin to take that leap of faith. Two days later she was taking a tour of Le Cordon Bleu in Los Angeles, CA where she eventually graduated with a Culinary Diploma with honors. Currently working as a personal chef, she absolutely adores what she does as it rarely feels like work.
Chef Erin Simone realized her love for cooking at the age of 13, spending countless hours at the library mesmerized by all of the cookbooks. She remembers spending numerous afternoons reading them as if they were novels. Fortunately, her parents let her test out recipes on them. One of her first meals was fettuccini alfredo served with a romaine and radish salad. She remembers her sister whispering in her ear, “Mom never makes dishes like these!” While feeling a bit shy in that moment, she also felt proud knowing she was making something innovative, even if just within the confines of her family.
Chef Meyers is currently based out of Las Vegas, NV but has also worked with high-profile clientele in Los Angeles and San Diego. While her roots are embedded on the East Coast she has certainly adopted a bit of that West Coast spirit. She believes her food and work mentality exemplify the dichotomous coasts with a humble mix of authenticity, classiness and fearlessness. Chef Erin Simone takes great pride in her craft and sprinkles a piece of her heart and soul into every dish she creates. That passionate edge is softened by adding a bit of whimsy and creativity to each dish. Despite the trite saying, she genuinely believes the way to anyone’s heart is through a beautiful and nourishing meal…especially dessert!
