Introduction
**Please be sure to read to the last paragraph ** Hi, I'm Joe and cooking for you is my passion. I am a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, NY, a trained chocolatier, and restaurant chef. I have over 25 years experience in the industry, including living and working in Tuscany for 3 years. I believe in a rich and creative food for the spirit, as well as the body. My cuisine focuses on fresh and seasonal ingredients, executed with elevated and inspired techniques. I love the challenge of meeting new people and delivering food and service above and beyond their expectations, in new and different settings. I would love to talk more directly with you about your specific private chef needs. ***********If some reason you are having trouble reaching me through Thumbtack, or I decline your request on Thumbtack, please email me at my name at gmail. Applies mostly to bigger wedding type jobs as the way Thumbtack is set up I will usually end up paying $50++just to start discussing the job with the client who are in turn shopping around and haven’t decided yet (which is fine!)********** Thank you, and buon appetito! Joe

I had never used Thumbtack before. Joe Merchanthouse, a personal chef, responded to my request for same. He stepped in at the last minute to handle a private dinner party for my husband and myself. Cannot say enough about Chef Joe. He developed a menu, worked within my budget, prepared a fabulous meal, and spoiled my guests. Absolutely cannot wait for any excuse or event to have him back. My guests are still talking about him. A consummate professional. Thank you, Chef.

Joe Merchanthouse is an outstanding chef who is also so personable to the unique needs of his clients. We live in Texas, but my sister and her husband in Louisville were both recuperating from illnesses. Thumbtack and Mr. Joe came to our rescue. I was immediately matched up with the services Mr. Joe provided. My sister went on and on about how delicious the meal was and the way it was served in their home. Most certainly we will be calling on Mr. Joe again for our family's catering needs in Louisville. Sincerely, Rita Rose
