Get to know me better
I am a personal chef with the desire to bring the restaurant experience into your home.
As long as I can remember I have wanted to be a chef, I just didn’t always know it. My earliest memory is of my Paternal Grandmother cooking in her kitchen. I vividly remember not only the food we ate but the happiness I felt when we ate. It was these formative years that I learned what later became my overall philosophy for food. “Food Unites” You may not remember every detail of the most important meals of your life, But you remember with exacting detail the people you were with. I grew up with not only a passion for food, but the stories it tells. I didn’t always know I was going to be a chef, But I knew food was an important part of my life.
I would best describe my culinary point of view as innovative yet simple. I enjoy exploring modern variations of Mediterranean and Eastern European cuisine with a focus on on my Classical French training. I prefer to work the freshest seasonal ingredients whenever possible. Utilizing fresh herbs, highlighting artisanal components and local seafood. I take personal pride in my ability to pull inspiration from a variety of sources to create dishes that are uniquely my own.
I am a member of USPCA as well as Servsafe and Allergen Awareness certified.

Chef Joe exceeded expectations. Not only was the meal he prepared fantastic, he was also engaged and shared his knowledge and experience throughout his time with us. I would certainly book him again.

We had a wonderful magical evening of great food with 11 friends. We felt so special and having all this wonderful food served to us. We never felt rushed. I highly recommend having a nice evening at home with a beautifully prepared meal and good friends. Just wonderful!!
