Simon Majumdar was born on April 7, 1964 in Winchester, England. Raised in Rotherham, South Yorkshire, United Kingdom, his father is Indian and his mother is British. He has three siblings. He became a citizen of the United States on September 17, 1964
Simon has been married to Sybil Villanueva since 2010. They presently reside in Los Angeles, California. His family also has a holiday home in Southern Spain.
Prior to venturing into the culinary world, Simon maintained a successful career in book publishing. Like a lot of people, Simon felt that his life at the age of 40 was being unfulfilled and lacking. Therefore, he quit his career, grabbed his bag and traveled the world to “go everywhere, eat everything.” It’s a dream that many of us wish we could achieve.
As he trekked the world, he learned a lot about food and various cuisines. With this newfound knowledge, Simon integrated his talent for writing and his love of food by becoming a food writer. Simon has written several books since entering this new career, including “Eat My Globe: One Year to Go Everywhere and Eat Everything,” “Fed, White and Blue” and “Eating For Britain.”
Due to the success of these books, Simon appeared as a judge on several hit Food Network television shows, including “Cutthroat Kitchen,” “Iron Chef America” and “The Next Iron Chef.” He has also acted as host for the hit series “Beat Bobby Flay.” He has often been described as the network’s “toughest critic.”
Because he’s allergic to coffee and oysters, none of these shows serve these items to him.
We estimate that Simon Majumdar’s net worth is $700,000 (2015).
So how much is $700,000 really?
Since he would someday like to live along the Istrian Coast, $700,000 could buy you a nice little home there where you can eat a lot of the various types of food. $700,000 could also buy you many copies of his favorite book of all-time: “White Heat” by Marco Pierre White.
