"To say Chef Josh exceeded expectations is the understatement of the century. Josh catered our company Christmas Party and everyone was blown away! The only thing better than the amazing presentation was the taste. The risotto balls.......I couldn't stop eating them! I can't wait to be fortunate enough to have Chef Josh for our next event." - Eddie G
"Chef Josh Ferris prepared a fantastic meal for my fiancé and I on Valentine's Day. He created a pistachio seared lamb chop with an asparagus cream topped with Caramelized onions and a Marsala and raspberry foam. This dish was absolutely delicious and the presentation was top notch. He then finished the meal with a lemon cheesecake, which was a wonderful balance between tangy and sweet. We asked Josh to surprise us with the menu, and we were so impressed with his ability to execute a fantastic dish that was unique and tasty. The experience was wonderful, as we were able to enjoy top-quality food in our own home. We look forward to many more occasions with Josh, his personality is hard to beat, and we loved the food and environment he set up for us to enjoy our special day. I would highly recommend Chef Josh Ferris." - Kelsey W.

I specifically asked Chef Josh for an authentic Mediterranean cuisine as my nutrition-based meal prep for the week. What he delivered was phenomenal! Greek Chicken with Tzatziki, Greek Cucumber Salad with Rosemary Feta, Lebanese Tabouleh and Kibbeh, perfectly roasted Rainbow Carrots and so much more! If you are looking for high quality, healthy and delicious meal preparations for your busy work week, Chef Josh Ferris can do this for you hassle-free." - David N.
I have had the extreme pleasure to have Chef Josh Ferris as my Private Chef for a night as I was hosting friends and family. His immediate presence and charm simply made the evening incredibly relaxed. The 3-course plated dining experience was absolutely enchanting! He started with an authentic bruschetta followed by a sous vide New York Strip which went tremendously well with a Ronfun mushroom risotto paired with a glass of Montepulciano Vino Rosso. The closing touch was amazing; a very unique poached pear infused with red wine, cinnamon and orange with vanilla bean ice-cream and mint bathing in a red wine reduction sauce. A delightful and memorable evening, I would sincerely recommend Chef Ferris. He came prepared, maintained the utmost professionalism and demonstrated great finesse." - Francis C.
It gives me great pleasure to write testimonials for those who deserve mention. With that being said, I HIGHLY recommend Chef Joshua for any private occasion whether it is a large event of small intimate gathering. I hired Chef Joshua for a Holiday event in December of 2016.. He planned the entire event from start to finish so I did not have to do anything but show up at my own party. Chef Joshua was responsible for customizing the menu and presenting it with flair. Well, flair is an understatement. Not only was the food incredibly delicious, the presentation was beautiful and festive for our occasion. Chef Joshua was dressed professionally and my guests enjoyed talking with him throughout the evening. When Chef Joshua arrives to work, he is prepared and organized – and most importantly, comes with a great attitude. Working with Chef Joshua was so easy and enjoyable. I highly recommend Chef Joshua as a private chef for all occasions and wish him much success in his future endeavors. - Laurie N
“Chef Josh catered our annual Christmas party this year. He prepared a fabulous menu of delicious courses that we raved over. The presentation was equally impressive. The buffet table was beautifully decorated. Chef Josh comes highly recommended. He made sure that all the details were handled and everything went off without a hitch. We had a very, very nice evening!” – Andee W
When we got married, we knew we wanted something different than the "same old wedding food" from "the same old wedding caterers". Enter Chef Josh. He worked with us to create a family-style meal that was not only unbelievably delicious, it was elegant and beautiful to look at. You could taste the love and care and attention to detail he put into his cooking. Chef Josh helped us make our wedding reception feel like an intimate dinner party for friends. No easy task, but he made it look effortless. If you have the chance to have Chef Josh cook for you... whether it's for a dinner party, a wedding, a fancy date night or just because, do it. He's beyond amazing. And a super nice guy, too. –Kara C
Josh Ferris is “THE MAN,” was the unanimous sentiment expressed by fourteen of our closest friends we hosted in our home for a 2018 New Year’s Eve celebration. Josh took us on a culinary tour of the Mediterranean with unique dishes from Spain, Italy, and Lebanon. The Spanish favorites included tapas with shrimp & cilantro, garlic and button mushrooms, and sautéed chorizo in red wine sauce. The Lebanon favorites included tabbouleh salad, shankleesh and string cheese, and kibbeh balls (lamb balls stuffed with ground meat and pine nuts). The culinary tour concluded with an assortment of Italian goodies including bistecca alla florentina, arancini di riso (fried risotto balls), charcuterie platter with aged meats and Italian cheeses, and fried polenta with scallops and broccoli. The final chapter to satisfy the sweet tooth for all party goers consisted of churros dipped in dark chocolate and baklava. All guests left completely sated and satisfied with a memory to cherish. The kitchen and house were left immaculately clean, which made for an awesome recovery period for the hosts who sorely needed the next day to recover from a well-celebrated evening. If you are interested in a similar party experience, Josh Ferris is your MAN! – Sean R
We had such a marvelous evening at a dinner party for about 15 people by Chef Josh!
The vegetables, meats and cheeses were all so complimentary to each other--the perfect pairings! The entree of beef tenderloin was cooked to perfection and the signature dessert and drink of the evening were special, unexpected treats. Coordinating decorations and table-scape were perfect for the Christmas holiday and a lovely added touch. We can't wait to sample his talents again soon! -Colleen P
Our party on June 9th, 2018 was a great success in small part because of the fantastic buffet dinner created by Joshua. Several weeks before, we easily settled on a menu for 25 guests via telephone and email. The day of the party, Joshua showed up in the afternoon, took command of our kitchen and began the process of preparing, cooking, serving and presenting the buffet. Everything was in place when guests began arriving, beautifully presented and entirely delicious! Then whie we and out guests were enjoying the dessert and after-dinner drinks, Joshua was busily cleating and cleaning up so that by the time the party was finished, there was nothing more to clean up and the kitchen was spotless. We really appreciate the hard work Joshua put into this dinner (and we only saw the work at our home…). It’s a pleasure to recommend him highly!

Josh was introduced to me by his cousin whom I met on a trip to Costa Rica. It so happened that I needed a chef and caterer as I was planning my husband’s retirement party. I reached out to Josh and from the first point of contact, it was a pleasure to work with him. He put together a wonderful menu that incorporated international cuisines to reflect all of our travel. He took care of all the décor as well, which was a huge help. The food was tasty and creative, and he catered to the gluten-free and vegan tastes of some of our guests with the menu. He also pitched in to help bartend between cooking. Our guests loved him and he was a great addition to the party. We will definitely have him back for our next celebration. -Betsy and John
With Chef Josh’s reputation, my husband and I knew the wedding would be fabulous but had no idea how incredible it turned out to be. Our family and guests were just as amazed at Chef Josh’s talents, from the quality of the food, the perfection of the taste, and the elegant presentation. Everything down to the smallest detail was done to perfection and more than I ever imagined. Perfect. Thank you Chef Josh for making our wedding something we will never forget. -Elaine F
We were very pleased and fortunate to have used Josh to cater our special rehearsal dinner for our son. Josh was very professional, courteous and accommodating throughout the evening. He worked with us to find the right food and price. The food he prepared was excellent and the presentation very professional. Josh cleaned up and stored leftovers. All in all, we were very satisfied with The quality of Josh’s food and service. -Kathleen C
Chef Josh went above and beyond! Truly as good as it gets. My husband and I hired Chef Josh to cater our wedding dinner for 27 people. The food was heavenly, plus Josh took care of little touches that made our entire night phenomenal. Not to mention, he is the kindest most down to earth, relatable guy you could ask for. He took time to work with us on the menu and other details so we could create a truly memorable and special experience for our friends and family.We are still dreaming about the food that Chef Josh made for us and our group. We are currently looking for reasons to hire him again next year... and the next... and the next. - Kayla & Jermey
