Pam Simon is a chef at heart. For Pam, the owner and proprietor of ChefMom Inc., her love of entertaining in the home started as a natural progression of her love of cooking. After all, when you’ve worked out a delicious party menu – from the appetizers to the main course to dessert – you want to make sure the entire dining experience is complete.
How it all began
For Pam, the star of any dinner party or celebration has always been the food. She could always be found in the kitchen of her Plantation, Florida home cooking up magical culinary experiences for family and friends. She soon became known throughout her community as a talented cook. The nickname ChefMom was born, and Pam adopted the moniker for her email address.
Pam approached entertaining and home decorating much like she approached cooking … with the soul of an artist. From kitchen utensils to decorative accessories, she’s always made a point of seeking out quality tools with a simple elegance and unique charm.
When friends and acquaintances started seeking her sources to purchase similar merchandise themselves, Pam saw an opportunity to combine charity with her special expertise and well-trained eye for decorative design. Many of the inquiries were coming from acquaintances within her local community, such as her children’s school, the community center or at temple. Since most of these groups are always looking for unique fundraising opportunities, Pam started organizing charitable boutiques where she’d bring many of her latest decorative finds and donate a healthy portion of the sales to the hosting charity.
As interest grew, ChefMom became a full-fledged business with year round demand outside of the charitable events, leading to the introduction of this website. We hope ChefMom.com will become your source not only for stylish gifts and accessories, but also for new recipes and other tips and suggestions for entertaining.
