I've cooked outside for nearly two decades. Starting with a gas grill on a beach-side deck, I slowly moved up the ladder through different vehicles and fuels. Gas, coal, wood. Classic BBQ, Santa Maria and now Wood Oven. I learned that with each evolution, I learned more and more, and in each case, my favorite step was putting the time in to learn. In my last stage, I worked with the artisan who built my oven - A Sicilian who builds ovens in Santa Barbara, to learn how to truly cook with fire. It's been a beautiful journey, and one that I share often with friends and family. I feel like it's time to share with others I haven't met yet.
During the day, I collaborate entrepreneurs and help them grow their businesses. At night I make pizza.
I like the basic elements, great quality, small batch, natural, from the sea or land.
What to expect at Josh's place
A group of us pphad a great time at Josh’s beautiful house. He made a good variety of delicious food in his wood fire oven, which made for a fun dinner party. His wife and kids even helped, and Mitzi’s cocktails were superb. We felt very safe sitting outside, and entire experience was lovely. I would happily do this again!
Really fantastic experience!! Josh and his “sous chefs” were wonderful. The setting - outdoors in the canyon - was also perfect. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a fun, casual, and delicious experience.
We loved the pizzas! Great time, tasty food, fun.
Best kept pizza secret in Los Angeles. A truly magical experience dinning outside against the flower filled mountainside. The wood fire oven was mesmerizing and the food was seriously AMAZING!!!... The best Pizza I've ever had! I plan to come back and this time bring everyone I know. Thank you again Josh for sharing your talents with us!
