Meet Chef Paula
Chef Paula Sims Ballard was born and raised in New Orleans, Louisiana where she discovered her passion for cooking at an early age. “Food is not just for sustenance…it’s a way of life”.
After several successful years in the corporate and entrepreneurial sectors in sales, marketing, and performance consulting, Chef Paula returned to her first love… cooking and entertaining. After starting out as a private chef and caterer, in 2005 Chef Paula became the Co-Owner/Executive Chef of the Sycamore Grill, a fine dining restaurant housed in an 18th century historic mansion in the heart of downtown Stone Mountain, Georgia. Well known for its fabulous cuisine, it became a local favorite and destination spot. During her reign, Chef Paula took the Sycamore Grill to new heights with innovative cuisine and southern hospitality at its finest being featured in The Atlantan, Bon Appétit, and The Treasures of Georgia.
Other endeavors include Chef Instructor at Vino Venue/The Atlanta Wine School conducting Cooking Classes, Cooking Competitions and Private Events as well as Food & Wine Contributor for Distinguished Gents Magazine
