Delicious Food on Any Scale

Nothing brings people together better than good food, and whatever the occasion, entrepreneur and personal chef Josh Katt is just the right man for the job. With 13 years of culinary experience on his toque, he can whip up the most scrumptious meals to bring family, friends, and colleagues together in a wonderful dining experience to remember.

I feel confident when I cook, and [it's] why I make solid dishes (sometimes 4 portions of 14 different dishes in 6 hours!) that you will love.

The love for gourmet of this Chicago-based kitchen wizard dates back to his childhood, but it wasn't until five years ago when cooking made a lot of sense. His small background in catering and serving tables also makes him well-rounded with his clients, accommodating all their needs on the platform of satisfaction, "all with a smile and willingness." Josh works with his crew to aid him in the nitty-gritty of the business.

But what makes this young chef such a standout from the rest?

Josh thinks about his client's dietary needs without compromising taste and flavor. Just recently, he whipped up a vegan cuisine for one of his clients, one of which was Vegan Paella, which became an instant hit on the picky taste buds of his vegan customer.

I want to be perceived as someone my clients can trust to do my job professionally, all while creating delicious food on any scale. I want to be seen as someone who really cares about their dietary needs and that is knowledgeable in the areas they have hired me to handle for them.
