The ingredients are my paint, the plate is my canvas.
Personal Chef # 4369
My cooking style is my own, I combine details from every cuisine and style I learn to create new and exciting dishes. My style is much broader than the 6 influences I can select; I am very well versed in many different types of cuisines, styles and techniques. I love teaching others how enjoyable cooking can be and how to make magic out of the simplest of ingredients. Creating your own personalized custom menu is enjoyable and exciting for me, so please, let's work together!
I have worked in many professional kitchens throughout Akron/Cleveland, OH Such as: Wolf Creek Tavern, Dante Restaurants, Toast Wine Bar, Canterbury Golf Club, Bourbon Street Barrel Room, Mustard Seed Market Cafe, Aladdins Eatery, and more! I went to culinary school at Cuyahoga Community College where I received my associates degrees in hospitality management and in culinary arts. Currently I am pursuing my personal chef career and working part time at select fine dining restaurants to stay current with today's food trends. Recently I've moved into the lower part of Michigan where I was the Sous Chef for Bon Appetit Management Company. I now have committed 100% of my time to my business and look forward to working for you! I am able to do lunch or dinner parties for 2 to 30 people. I also provide cooking classes for ages 13 and up!
We were so lucky to connect with Chef Joshua just 4 days before my birthday party. He expertly planned such an exciting menu for 16 people which I was happy with- but when he actually made the food, it was so much more than what can be conveyed by words on a menu! We were blown away- Chef Josh even made beautiful custom menus, went above and beyond to tailor all aspects of the meal to the party's theme, and just absolutely killed it. Hands down it was the highlight of our weekend. Joshua and his wife Megan were perfect professionals and a ton of fun- they definitely exceeded all of our expectations and was the highlight of our weekend.
Couldnt recommend them more sincerely.
Chef Joshua and his wife Megan were extremely easy to work with. We had a blast with them! The food was the best I have ever had. The service was excellent. They were a joy to work with. I highly recommend them and look forward to working with them again in the future!
Chef Josh is incredible!!
Josh is unequaled in his ability to prep, cater, and serve fine dining! Josh went above and beyond to create an incredible experience for our work team and families over the past week.
From ingredients to presentation, Josh and his wife Megan were incredible! We will look no further than Josh for future culinary needs!!
