Having worked alongside Simon Majumdar in the development of a new program series "Convivium: Dining through History," I can attest that his knowledge about food past and present has few peers among scholars, and none of them can cook the way he can. It is a treat to listen to him talk about historical food, and even more of a treat to eat what he prepares

Stephen Aron, Professor and Robert N. Burr Department Chair

UCLA Department of History

Our team couldn’t have been more pleased with his work and just as much so with his professionalism and authenticity. He really was a great team player! . . . As an agency focused solely in the food space, I will be sure to recommend him to colleagues and clients whenever possible.

JT Mega, A Full-Service Food Advertising Agency

[I]t has been my pleasure to work with many Celebrity Chefs and by far, my experience with you was "top shelf." I appreciate so your engagement with the attendees, your respect for the catering special events industry, and your willingness to share your passion and personal stories with us all. . . . If I were to sum this all up in a recipe for an excellent featured speaker, it would read as follows:

  • Take one part very charming, knowledgeable, and well-traveled man.

  • Add an equal part of experiences from worldwide culinary journeys and network television.

  • Sprinkle generously with a passion for life and a gift for sharing.

  • Simmer gently and season with the perfect life and business partner.

  • Serve to your audience, then sit back and enjoy while they are totally entertained and inspired. 

Linda West, Education Director


I liken him to a Chef of Life because every time I watch Simon speak I experience the range of human emotions as he takes you on a journey that makes you laugh, cry, think, and be inspired all in one sitting. You stand and applaud knowing you have watched not only a true artist but a great and loving guy.

Jeffrey M. Sparr, Artist & Co-Founder

Simon Majumdar has been a wonderful addition to the Golden Foodie Awards. Since he became our host the event has not only been elevated, it has become even more treasured by our local chefs.

On a personal and professional level he is a joy to work with and I'm grateful to have him involved.
