Lynn was born and grew up in Verona NJ, and lived in Jersey ’til she moved to Denver just over a year ago. Simone grew up in Tehran, Iran in a middle class Jewish family. He came to Queens, NY at 16 to continue his education. Simone and Lynn met each other while working at a catering hall in NJ in college. Less than two years later they got married. Being a talented cook, Lynn picked up on Iranian cuisine and treated family and friends to variety of delicious dishes at social gatherings. She was told by many she should become a caterer, but never felt confident enough to embark on such a challenging endeavor.
It was during their second son’s Bar Mitzvah that Lynn and Simone decided to cater the Kiddush luncheon themselves. A congregant who was truly impressed by the luncheon approached them during the event and ask them if they would cater their son’s Bar Mitzvah. They accepted the offer, and Lymone Caterers (Kosher Catering by Lynn at the time) was created. Lynn combined Iranian flavors with traditional Ashkenazi dishes and created array of foods to satisfy all palates.
Lynn and Simone moved to the Denver Metro area in September of 2018 to be closer to their four sons and 2 granddaughters. After hopping around hubs in the Denver Jewish communty, they discovered that Congregation Rodef Shalom was looking for an in-house caterer. They took advantage of the opportunity and catered several kiddushes on a trial basis, which led to Lymone Caterers becoming the in-house caterer at Rodef. They invite you to join them for Shabbat Services followed by a creative and delicious Kiddush.
Lymone Caterers services include house parties as small as 20 people, to larger events such as Bar/Bat Mitzvahs and weddings. They also offer Shiva and Shabbat Dinners. For more details, please contact us.
