Who is Chef Simone??


Chef Simone Joseph was culinary trained in Durban, South Africa. In 2004, she traveled to the USA to work for Boca West Country Club, West Hampton Beach La Ronde Country Club, and Nobu Waikiki before settling in Tampa. Along the way, she cooked for people like President & Mrs. Obama, Elton John, George Clooney and Venus & Serena Williams! Chef Simone began working at The Prep in the summer of 2019 when she ran cooking camps that were sold out every week. We are so excited to welcome her to our staff and we are looking forward to growing Chef Simone’s Culinary Academy at The Prep! Be on the lookout for more child and adult cooking classes, holiday workshops, School’s Out camps, birthday parties, all new summer camps and SO much more!
