  • Chef Josh was absolutely fantastic. I planned a surprise birthday for my wife and two of our closest friends. Chef Josh worked with me to make sure our evening was perfect. He communicated easily, and made great suggestions for our menu.

    Now to the important stuff...the food! I asked for an Italian meal with seasonal ingredients, and man did he crush it. We opted for four courses, and every course built upon the last, was delicious, and perfectly prepared. The portions were huge and we are feasting on delicious leftovers. Our first course was a roast asparagus and burrata salad with candied pistachio, arugula, pickled blueberries, lemon Vinaigrette, and grilled focaccia. This was followed by hand made gnocchi with pesto, and our main course was beef braciole. Finally, dessert was his Tiramisu. Truly exceptional at every course. Thanks Chef for making our event perfect.

  • Chef Josh was superb. Very polite, very detailed. He responded timely to all of my questions and gave guidance on course selection. For the event he was very prompt, interacted with guests (when appropriate) and created a fantastic experience. When he left he kitchen was amazingly clean. I highly recommend for your next event!

  • I hired Josh for a cooking lesson for my parents for Christmas. Josh was great, my parents were texting me throughout telling me how great everything was. He made my parents a trio of Mediterranean dips, pita, falafel, salad, cod, couscous, and an entire tray of baklava. My parents said he was very professional, very personable, and a true pleasure. He has a wide array of flavor profiles he can cook, and I'm sure my parents will be in touch with him to have him come down and cook another cuisine soon. He also left the kitchen cleaner than when he got there. Would HIGHLY recommend Josh.

  • What a memorable evening! I collaborated with Josh to develop an amazing 5 course fusion Asian dinner menu for our family in celebration of my parents 40th anniversary. Josh responded quickly and was great at making suggestions based on dietary restrictions. Josh brought all the ingredients, including fresh fish from the fish market and fresh vegetables grown locally, as well as his personal knives, pots, pans, etc. He prepared the meal in front of us, explaining what he was doing, while at the same time we were devouring each course. My personal favorite was the tuna sashimi, although the winter salad, miso glazed salmon, sautéed baby bok choy and other courses were equally amazing. While the meal was spectacular, it was also equally enjoyable getting to know Josh, who is an absolute delight! We are very fortunate to have this amazing New York Michelin star chef living in our city and our family looks forward to spending future celebrations with Josh!

  • Chef Joshua absolutely blew us away with his willingness to collaborate on a menu we were not only excited to eat - but also excited to learn how to cook! Josh was extremely professional and helped reassure safety precautions while cooking in our house. We had great conversation and even better food, we had our favorite Italian dishes made to fit the timeframe of the evening. This included Cacio e Pepe, lasagna Bolognese (pasta from scratch), garlic bread, gnocchi pesto (also homemade tonight) and a delicious bread pudding! Really enjoyed the tips and tricks we learned along the way, highly recommend for any special occasions, this was my fiancé‘s birthday dinner and an excellent alternative to going out! Will definitely recommend to friends and try again in the near future. …(added bonus- he cleaned the whole kitchen!)

  • The BEST personal chef experience EVER! Not only is Chef Josh a talented culinary artist, he’s simply a joy to engage. Every morsel of the five course meal was perfectly prepared. He was attentive to our needs and desires during the entire process! I can’t wait for our next event!

  • Chef Josh was amazing! Working with him to finalize the menu was easy, he had the best suggestions for different flavor profiles, and he came prepared and ready to go! Each course was delicious, abs the presentation and plating felt like we were in a Michelin star restaurant. Timing was great, as first course came out right as we had planned and each course was timed perfectly as we were finishing the previous. Chef Josh made this celebration extra special and this was our first booking with a private chef but we will be booking Josh again! Thank you Chef Josh for the delicious meal, and extra special evening. Our kitchen even was left cleaner than when he arrived!

  • Chef Josh was beyond amazing. He worked with me to revise the menu to ensure that I hit on all of my partner's favorite dishes. He kept me up to date on the ingredients he was able to get, amending the menu a bit to ensure all of the items were fresh. He arrived on time and was so nice as he walked us through each of the dishes he was making. It was truly an amazing experience. We also both felt super safe, he kept his mask on the entire time and cleaned everything with clorox after using. Could not recommend him enough!

  • Josh and a partner served a great meal and helped make the day special despite the strange circumstances. We particularly liked the lamb stew and baklava.
