About The Chef
Erika McCallin has lived in the Denver area since moving to Colorado at
the age of 12 with her family from New Orleans, LA. She graduated from
Evergreen High School and later attended the University of South
Carolina, receiving a bachelors degree in Finance and a minor in
French. After a year of backpacking and traveling through Europe
post-college, she began a career in finance with a large bank as a
financial analyst. After 6 years with the bank, she decided that her
passion was truly in cooking. Taking a leap of faith, she pursued
her passion by attending the Professional Culinary program at Cook
Street School of Fine Cooking right here in Denver. Following the
completion of her program, Chef Erika went on to continue her studies
by traveling once more to Europe. She attended a course at the
Academia Barilla in Parma, Italy, studying Italian classic technique. She went on to Paris to study with Chef Martial, a French Master
Chef. Though her passion of fine restaurant-quality food was explored
through her studies, Chef Erika takes enormous pleasure cooking for
families in her community as a personal chef. She loves to spend time with her husband, Colin, her young sons Logan & Tate, her dog Bogie, and her cat Kit-Kat.
